The Obama administration is looking hard at pushing through a health care reform bill without Republican backing, top Democrats close to the White House told CNN. Democratic success could depend on an obscure tactic called reconciliation, a type of budget maneuver that requires only a simple majority -- 51 votes -- to pass.
This is the part that really scares me...
f we have to push it through this way, no one is going to remember how messy it was," a top White House adviser told CNN. "At the end of the day, they'll remember we got health care reform done. A win is a win."
In other words, Obama does not care what the American people think...he knows better. We are seen as the little children who do not know any better and even though we might not like it at first, we'll be happier because our parents stepped in and took over.
This is not good.
