The nuclear option by Obama, Pelosi, Reid on Health Care

Apparently, according to the news the Democrats are going to attempt to use reconciliation.  That method only allows for budget items so someone procedurally has to go through a cross out anything not budget related.

This is to me an interesting thing.  As the president said if the people don’t like it that’s what elections are for.  He forgets something, I think, and I could be wrong, that he’ll lose a lot of democratic support if he tries this.  I could be wrong but it may happen.

Several outcomes are possible.

First, the news is wrong and this isn’t what they are going to do.  A real option.

Second, it will pass in some unrecognizable form.  The democrats will lose both houses in the process or you won’t be able to get a hotel room in DC due to all the protestors.  Both are fine options with me.

Third, it will fail and President Obama’s approval rating will take a deeper dive than it already has.

I don’t see any of these except for the first as something beneficial to the President or the Democrats.  They have to know this.  I can’t see their angle.  What are they trying to accomplish?  Being able to paint the republicans as the party of no?  Because they are doing what the polls show the American public wants at least on this subject?  Confused at the real motivation here.  If anyone has an idea what that motivation is please leave a comment and help me see it.

    Interesting post. I’m not sure I see the motivation either except that is the way of the progressive to push, push, push “forward” without considering the will of the people, hence the name “progressive.”


    • I agree they are pushing forward. I just one of them would look toward the front of the proverbial boat to see if it is about to ram into that iceburg.
