I can relate....I don't like being forced to buy something with a gun to my head either.
Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) issued a blunt, angry statement on Wednesday,
accusing the Senate of conducting negotiations with the House while holding "a
gun to our head."
"The House has shown deference to the Senate in this process. But I am tired of hearing how hard it was to get 60 votes in the Senate — getting 218 votes to pass our healthcare bill in the House wasn’t easy," said Weiner, who has taken an increasingly prominent role during the healthcare debate.
Democratic leaders are working to reconcile the House and Senate bills, particularly a handful of issues — including a tax on "Cadillac plans" and restrictions on abortion funding — that have the two chambers at loggerheads
Funny though, while the left likes to point to Republicans as being the party of no and the reason this deal has not been done, it is clear that the most radical on the left cannot reconcile with the more moderate Dems. When you have some in their own party that want nothing to do with abortion funding or a public option and yet others that will not pass it without either, it would seem they have a loooong way to go. Fortunately, Obama has flown in on his white horse to make sure they get it done-no matter the cost to the people.
