Obama: Onwards with reconciliation!

ABC reports that President Obama will back the reconciliation side-car if Health Care is not given an up or down vote. Since the Republicans made up their mind on January 20, 2009 to not help President Obama achieve his legislative goals, this will most likely be the path taken. Of the 59 Democratic Senators, we can almost assure ourselves that there will be some “No” votes on the side-car; however, 50 should be a lot easier to get to. Of the 41 Republicans, not one will vote for the side-car. This is looking more and more like the Democrats will get Health Care Reform done before Easter, giving incumbent Democrats time to run home, explain their vote, and ward off any opposition from within the party and from Republicans.
