Bernie Sanders was on a talkshow yesterday discussing the amendments that Democrats would have to vote on. He said that if there is even one minor change (like punctuation), the bill would have to go back to the House. In that instance, since the bill would have to go back to the House anyway, he'd like to make an amendment of his own. He'd like to tack on a "public option" provision. So, his theory is, if one single change is made, he's going to add the "public option." He said that he was relatively sure that, considering the situation, at least another 49 of his fellow senators would join him (not merely on principle, but because they like the idea). He said that he thought Nancy Pelosi already had close to 216 on the "public option," and that some "blue dogs" in the House could be persuaded to vote for that "public option." The door can swing two ways on the Republican program of throwing a bunch of amendments out there in the hopes of racking up votes to campaign on this year. This could be one way to have that "government run insurance" program that scares Republicans so much.

I know. I think it is brilliant. First, there would be something that a Republican want to hang around a Democrat's neck during this year's campaign. Not only would one Democrat vote for it, once the first vote was in, there would no reason all the other Democrats would not vote for the good thing too. AND, since the bill would then be amended and have to go to the House again anyway, Bernie Sanders would throw in the "public option." Sweet...It would be a twofer - the Republican amendment that the Democrat would want PLUS the "public option," which would make liberals very happy. Republicans might be playing with fire here. Wouldn't it be a hoot, if it was Republican strategy that actually gave Democrats a sweet victory?

They have to leave in the Viagra coverage for sex offenders.


To do any less would be an insult to the party of Clinton and in memory of Ted.

Those Democrats don't know what's in the bill now. Called my Dem Senator and his office couldn't answer a simple question. ( What level of coverage I will be required to buy?) All I got was DUHHHH, we don't know.

It just goes to show how terrified the Dems are...and what a tenuous position their corruption has left them in.

Those three together might add up to a Bill or a Ted, but not both.

Leave it to Coburn, lol. He made very clear to all voters exactly what the Republicans are trying to do, or should I say NOT do. If he were serious don't you think he'd have chosen a more appropriate title for the amendment? Or maybe offered a "Castration for All Sex Offenders" amendment?

Stupid politcs!
