    If they do this, the Dems will lose up to 100 seats in the house in November. It will be a complete massacre, and it will take a long while before they recover from it.

    I don't think they'll do it. Already 5 Democratic Senators have come out opposed to reconciliation, all they need is 5 more.

    So, they near an "accord?"

    Do we know anything about it? Is it being accorded behind closed doors. Is there going to be an announcement? Are they getting ready for the meet and greet community organizing endeavor weeks coming? Obama's Congressional beer summit?

    Re: White House: Dems near accord on health care bill

    a successful president is expected to implement his mandate, received from the electorate upon his winning the white house

    his opponents are to be co-opted thru their certain knowledge that opposing the popular president will perforce bring down upon them pain of the political persuasion

    that's how presidents SHY OF SIXTY have gotten things done since our inception

    obama's the one who's misplayed every card, he's turned out to be nothing but incompetent, i'm sorry to say

    his opponents know that by saying NO to him they'll win virginia

    by EIGHTEEN POINTS

    they'll take massachusetts and new jersey, nevada, ohio, pennsylvania, michigan, arkansas, nebraska, north dakota, delaware...

    regions all around the country

    the president needs to grow up

    there's no way americans will pooh pooh harry going nuke

    you really think the electorate's not paying attention to health care?

    that assumption just got run over, flattened by scott brown's pickup

    if you can pass it, pass it

    politics hasn't changed since capra sent mr smith to washington

    no one complained the govt was broken when george bush's social security reform got ripped

    why is bayh so mad at reid?

    the party was sposed to have its compromise by TOMORROW, up and online

    the sunday talks came and went---NOT A WORD

    weird

    so, you have nothing to support your opposing opinion

    figures


    read something from a conservative think tank which shows your opinion is unfounded in fact:

    Do you know anything about the relationship between Hong Kong and China? Do you know anything about it's history? What about the fact that I pointed out that Taiwan requires the same thing?

    And what of the minority?
    Do they not matter?

    Can you justify making them do things, just because your in a majority?
