Update: NYT: "David Axelrod, Mr. Obama’s senior adviser, began the day by calling in to MSNBC to urge the party to hold together, warning of a 'tragic outcome' if Democrats failed to pass a bill that the White House says would expand health coverage while reining in costs." Why if so much is at stake do the Senate Dems not ditch the filibuster?
Kill the filibuster. Blast the President. But pass health care, says Paul Krugman.
Congress better fix the fracking thing, or Sen. Jim Demint's (R-SC) words on health care [Obama's "Waterlooo"] will be proven prophetic. And Demint is a bigoted, religious whackjob.
Does Harry Reid think that the political message that America cannot abide obstruction and business as usual at this time of crisis won't play well, so he just has to keep the filibuster?
