Even as the President was saying that healthcare should be “slowed down”, and Scott Brown seated as the new Senator of Massachusetts, Speaker Nancy Pelosi was still trying for an “end run” around the will of the American People.

     The House had the option of taking the Seante version of the ObamaCare, unchanged, and vote upon it. If it were to pass (218 votes), it would go to the President for his signature. The plan was to convince the members that any issues would be “corrected” in later legislation.

     The Speaker has announced today that the option to adopt the Senate version is dead. She cannot muster the votes among the Blue Dog Democrats and others to reach the 218. This gos along with her “180” change in rhetoric this week, from “Massachusetts won’t change anything” to “we need to listen to the people”.
