look at the true consensus that previous social legislation was passed with compared to how bitter this debacle is being debated/polled at. while doing that, keep in mind that your liar of a president campaigned on hope and change, on coalition building.
he has demonstrated the absolute worst of chicago style politics instead.

The people need to tell the obama team that if this goes through that thier jobs will be gone. I like the saying YOUR FIRED
That's why moderate
are resisting, and why Obama is all but sure to push this through reconciliation - the moderates know they will be out of a Job come November if they put any support behind this debacle. As the article states, he is resolutely marching forward and more than willing to sacrifice his party members on the bayonets so to speak.
