51 Votes? Make Our Day.
Super(Short)Capitalist Robert Reich says do it with 51 votes. Yes, I agree. Ram it through. Democrats will get slaughtered in November and almost no Americans will be subject to the actually legislation as 1) states enact federalist inspired challenges and the solution gets gummed up in the courts for years, and 2) individual citizens launch constitutional challenges to the insurance mandate, 3) Republicans eventually repeal or gut the legislation. So Democrats get sent to oblivion and we don't have to actually live with the bill. Pretty good trade. Although, the constitutional crisis that we will see by virtue of #1 won't be milk and cookies.
