As noted in the item below, the Democrats have a new plan after secretly meeting for days. I  don’t know about other viewers, but I wasn’t encouraged last night when Senator Harry Reid emerged from the meeting to tell reporters that  they had a great new plan but he “couldn’t reveal the details.” Why not, Senator? It’s OUR health care at stake. I’ve lived in Washington since 1980 and this is the most bare-knuckled,  least transparent exercise of raw political power I’ve ever witnessed. I was here when the government was momentarily shut down in a budget dispute. I was here during the Clinton impeachment. And nothing, but nothing, compares to the partisan rancor and use of brute political force we are seeing today. This is no way to legislate. The Democrats may pay a price. But so will the country.
