I don't understand the mind set of representatives that don't want a bill, but can't find the "intestinal fortitude" to stand their ground and vote against the legislation. Is the cost that great to cast a vote that isn't in lock step with the rest of the party you are a member? Where did doing what is right because it is just that - right - and not worrying about the rest? Are our Congressional representatives so weak that they can't stand up and tell the Pelosi's and Reid's to take their deals and pressure elsewhere? Wrong is wrong even if everybody is doing it. Right is right even if no body is doing it. I guess they didn't learn that lesson from mom. "Would you jump off the roof just because every one else did?"

Over the weekend, Newsweek assistant managing editor Evan Thomas offered an intriguing insight into the MSM’s approach to the liberal health care bill slowly rolling its way through the Democratic-controlled Congress. After conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer accurately pointed out how the Senate bill only pretends to be “deficit-neutral” by front-loading the tax collection process while delaying the payouts, Thomas agreed: “Charles is right. This bill is a fiscal fraud.” But he quickly added: “I’d still vote for it.”
