    Just like the holding up of Presidential nominations to get the Benghazi hearings started and other Republican bills to the floor that are being help up by Reid.
    and suppose they do fillibuster it?

    Rubio, Paul, Palin, Santorum, Cruz----will all split the vote allowing Christie to win the nomination---scary would be if you knew the rules in the 50 different states with either primaries or caucuses--thank brother Michael Steele for them--all uninsured should be insured right now, correct..

    Come on all you young Obama supporters, get of there and take one for the team. You are the people who wanted this, buck up.

    Yeah and.....how does that affect the fact that Manchin sponsored legislation in the Senate with Kirk. Which was before Landrieu's.

    The only reason I can imagine the Republican's would do so, would be to get something changed or added or both. I seriously doubt the Republicans would filibuster just to stop it cold. Now, that said, there's no telling what Cruz or the other Tea Party loons will do.

    Well, 1 of 150 isn't THAT low.

    "Splitting the vote" doesn't really work that way.

    UPDATE: Only 26,794 of Obamacare enrollments came through the federal exchange.....snip~

    Yes.....indeed it is a great talking point. When exemplifying failure on a massive level and all hand-crafted by Democrats, Liberals and the Progressives.

    How are 396,261 again? Is that some sort of link on that?

    Well there really isn't any good choice now.....is there. That's what the Democrats and Obama has left us.

    You can’t run a two-tiered healthy/sick insurance system. If the risk pools aren’t merged, replete with higher rates for the former, you can’t pay for the latter.

    So if the young and healthy are able stay on their older, cheaper plans, where does all the necessary new money come from? Two readily apparent options: A tax increase, or a federal bailout of insurance companies. Either one of these would be positively radioactive politically. Absent either of those, insurance companies would jack up rates again to compensate, pulling the country around a major death spiral bend. There really are no good options left. Don't forget, every single Senate Democrat voted against Republicans' "keep your plan" fix in 2010, when it might have made a difference.....snip~
