I have always thought that the Republicans simply don’t have the power to win this battle in the conventional sense, anyway. As long as Obama is president and the Senate is in the hands of Harry Reid, they don’t have the votes to do it.
And so the news that there are compromises afoot is not exactly “news” at all.
A faction of the conservative wing of the party is livid at the prospect. That’s no surprise, either. You may be among them.
I have a very busy day today and can’t do my own long post about it right now, but you probably have quite a bit to say. Here’s a good analysis of the situation and the party’s ongoing civil war; and here’s another point of view.
One point, though: I’m thinking that those who said “let people experience Obamacare and they will reject it” (a situation I didn’t really agree would pan out that way) might have a point after all, if the abysmal rollout is any indication.
