There are things that have to be done. We can not keep putting this off.
But back in Washington the Political-media establishment was obviously exhausted from a year of exertions and produced no support for the President.
Nancy Pelosi finally admitted, grudgingly:
I don’t see the votes for it at this time.
Pollster Scott Rasmussen released his findings that 61% of likely voters agreed with the statement:
“Congress should drop health care reform and focus on more immediate ways to improve the economy and create jobs.”
Democrat Senator Bob Casey was ready to kick the pre-election damage control effort into high gear:
I don’t think we have to wait for health care to be resolved one way or the other before we move to jobs. We need to put a jobs bill on the table very soon, certainly in the next few weeks.
Since Democrats prove daily they have no idea how jobs are created we can be sure any “jobs bill” they come up with will be counter-productive.
Pride will prevent anyone from pronouncing the effort dead. But it is. It died in Massachusetts on Tuesday.
