Well, the democrats made clear they were willing to do whatever it takes, procedure be damned, to pass their HCR. Why? Because they think their HCR is what’s best for the country. Now, republicans are doing whatever it takes to put HCR on track for repeal/complete-overhaul. Why? Because they think that HCR is horrible and repealing it or chopping it up is what’s best. If either side was being honest about “just doing what’s right”, it’d be admirable although still 100% wrong. The fact is, they are almost to a number self-serving power whores and it sucks watching them on public display.

The bill that passed passed with 60 votes (and cloture). So no procedures were damned in the process. The reconciliation bill is necessary because the Republicans have said they refuse to participate unless the Democrats start over. And now they want to repeal what 60 Senators voted for? Please.

And Bob Dole (a Republican with a medically enhanced hard on) originally proposed much of what was in the bill that passed. So it’s not like they were voting against a liberal bill…they were voting against something they used to advocate.

This is about one thing, and that is derailing the President so they can try to win back the majority.
