Hanging themselves out to dry.
Ok, I know that in the back of their minds, they think that they will be loved by all of humanity if they ram this healthcare bill through, but isn't there anything front and center in their minds warning them that their political careers will be over if they do it?
Poll after poll shows that the majority of Americans do not want this monstrosity of a bill getting passed, but Nancy, Harry, and the President seem to be fine with ignoring that particular set of data. What they can't ignore, however, is the fact that the 2010 mid-terms, and the 2012 national election are just over the horizon. Throw in their tanking job approval ratings, and it is not looking good for the Dems.
But hey, if they want to ram it through (with 51 votes), then who are we to stop them from hanging themselves out to dry?
