I am just curious how many Democrats in the senate you think would be willing to fall on the sword for this health care reform bill that just passed the house? The vote seemed like it was very close for such a majority of Democrats being in office. How long will it take this reform to get on the senate floor for a vote and how do you predict it will go?

Why? Is it because there are too many blue dogs? I am trying to understand this. Does the Senate now try to squeeze more spending into the bill and then the balloon gets to big and pops before they can release it? I am hoping you are right, I am just trying to figure out the chances of it passing. What if they use reconciliation? Do they have 50 or 51 votes without the blue dogs?
Or are you saying that because no career politician will be willing to stick their neck out for this piece of garbage, special interest filled bill?

The bill has been pronounced D.O.A. by many senators.

"Fall on their sword"....? How dramatic. @@
I don't know. It sounds appropriate considering seats will be turning in a little less than a year.
