Any provision allowed by Republicans in the Senate are only provisions to insure failure. Republicans know that they are finished if the Obama administration passes a successful plan.
If the Democrats do not pass this full plan, it will fail in the publics eye and the Rebulicans will be back in congress in 2010.
Republicans do not have a reason to pass a bill that works. It goes against them retaining power in office. From this point forward, Budget Reconciliation is the only way that all Americans will be insured and hospitals will finally be paid for all their services. People will be going to their doctor before their guts fall out. What don’t you get?
