Midknight Review no longer believes the GOP health care reform bill will pass through the House and, if it does, may be DOA in the Senate.


Here is the problem the GOP is facing: There never was a majority demand to reject ObamaCare in its entirety. The GOP conflated polls showing a large number of folks wanting parts of the bill rejected, with a "rejection of the entire bill.'" For example, you can't include "pre-existing conditions" while pretending to oppose ObamaCare, in toto.

The Dems, who couldn't write a balanced budget if their lives depended on it, have convinced the voting public that you can have "pre-existing" without raising costs, ignoring the fact that no insurance coverage (home, business, auto) allows for "pre-existing" conditions. You can't wait to get insurance until after a wreck, or, until after your house burns to the ground or your business is sued. Dems have lied their collective butt off about this fantasy. Congrats. You all have ruined the future for viable health care.

And don't bother to look up the word "viable," the definition will not make any sense to you.
