It appears that the White House is ready to double down on dumb. While President Obama wants any kind of health care bill to sign I’m not sure he has the votes. 18 Democrats in the Senate are on the record saying they’re opposed to reconciliation, but politicians hardly ever keep their word. The big question is will the House pass the Senate version of the bill? I’m just not sure.
Meanwhile, the President’s approval ratings are continuing to sink. Now that he wants to ram through a very unpopular bill using a rarely used parliamentary tactic I expect his ratings to plummet even more. It appears Barack Obama has his earmuffs on and he doesn’t care what the American people think.
