Headed in the direction of absolutely nothing...

It's probably too early to start throwing confetti, but the prospects for Obama's hostile takeover of the health care industry are beginning to look very slim.

Russ Feingold tells a Wisconsin crowd of the prospects for health care legislation:

"Nobody is going to bring a bill before Christmas, and maybe not even then, if this ever happens," Feingold said. "The divisions are so deep. I never seen anything like that."

Feingold reiterated his appraisal a bit later.

"We're headed in the direction of doing absolutely nothing, and I think that's unfortunate..."



Let's crowdsource the question. What do you think?

Let's not get too confident yet. They said the same thing about cap and trade in the house, and they manged to buy the votes from spineless politicians in a one day sell your soul session.

I was so sure it wouldn't pass at all but the nuclear option looks like it's more viable today....Obama's going to stoop at nothing and he obviously doesn't give a (*&*(#@$ about what anybody thinks, so they might pull it off.
After all, this is all about HIM and HIS desires......we are minions, HE WON, and his disdain seems to have no bounds.

RK - Obama will do everything in his power to pass the bill with "co-ops" instead of "public option." It's the same dang animal.

Government should not be involved in health-care in any way, shape, or form.

Medicare should be phased out after passing tort reform and removing regulations strangling the insurance companies. And get employers out of the health care business.

NG: Now that's what I like to hear!

DaBlade: Why haven't we been waterboarding the Obamacrats?

BB: We do need to be wary. This is like the horror movie where the villain keeps coming back to life.

Z: The nuclear option is a possibility, but I'm not sure they can pull it off. It really looks like the Dems and their allies are putting more thought into how to save face, and less thought into how to get ObamaCare passed.

...and here's a sign of the times: the lead editorial in the Dem-friendly Washington Post today urges Congress to scrap ObamaCare.

Adrienne: Republicans don't talk much about phasing out Medicare. They should.
