WEINER SPEAKS THE TRUTH

Posted by Andrew Roman on January 19, 2010

As Democrats shiver in their political moccasins anticipating what will be a devastating loss in Massachusetts should the Republican, Scott Brown, seize Ted Kennedy’s old Senate seat later today, the real issue of what will happen to health care reform without a donkey supermajority looms large. While House Speaker Nancy Pelosi vows that a health care bill will pass no matter what happens, including a Brown victory, others are not so sure – or arrogant.

Democrat congressman Anthony Weiner from New York has been as honest as anyone in understanding how crushing of a defeat it will be for his party – and health care reform – should the detestable Martha Coakley lose to Scott.

On today’s edition of “Morning Joe” on MSNBC, Weiner had the following exchange with one of the panel members:

Panel Guy: Let’s say, for argument’s sake, she loses. Let’s just assume that for a moment. What happens to health care? We’ve heard that, perhaps, the Senate will ask the House to sign the Senate bill as is. What’s the next move if you only have 59 senators?

Weiner: I think you could make a pretty good argument that health care might be dead.

Panel Guy: Really?

Weiner: Yeah … I think it’s going to be very hard to ask us in the House to take the Senate bill when everyone acknowledges it was a worse bill. Everyone said the only reason we were passing the Senate bill was to move the ball forward.

I happen to agree with Weiner on this one – I just don’t think there’s a Hagen Dazs chance in Hades for the Senate version of ObamaCrap to meet with House approval.

Dems may, indeed, attempt to come up with something through reconciliation, but the process is an arduous one. The already rapidly declining shelf life of health care reform may long have run out by then.

    At least the little shit stain is telling the truth, at least as he see’s it.
