Here's a question? I'm reading the paper and wondering why, if the Republicans are so sure that the Democratic Health Insurance Reform bill is "political suicide," why not let it come to a vote? The Republicans can vote against it, the Democrats can vote for it, and it can pass with the Republicans on record for opposing it. Then, they can get those Congressional majorities they are so sure will follow; the "price [the Democrats] will pay.". But of course that won't happen. Because the Republicans know - if it passes - the public will begin to see the innumerable ways this bill, though imperfect, does benefit them. And they'll extract a price from Republicans for opposing it.
