Bill Kristol says Harry Reid lacks the 60 votes necessary to take ObamaCare to a roll-call in the Senate. If true, this is very good news.
Given the Democratic majority in both houses of Congress, the proper object of conservatives has always been neither a compromise nor the inclusion of some particular amendment, but simply no bill.
Any "health care reform" that could pass a majority-Democrat Congress would be, de facto, bad legislation. Whatever "health care reform" might pass a majority-Republican Congress might also be bad legislation, but that's a hypothetical we don't need to worry about now.
What we need to do now is KILL THIS BILL, and then make everyone who voted for it wish they'd never even heard the phrase "health care reform." Beat 'em so bad they won't try it again in a million years.
You might have noticed that Democrats haven't offered "immigration reform." They see what happened to Republicans after John McCain tried to push that through. Any "reform" effort in the direction of amnesty has been made radioactive, and we need to make "health care reform" equally radioactive.
Read all of Bill Kristol's article. It's very good. Ol' Bill isn't always right, but he's got this situation figured out.
