Is it dead? Well, it certainly isn't healthy:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Thursday that she does not have the votes needed to pass the Senate version of the health care bill.
"I don't see the votes for it at this time," Pelosi told reporters in a briefing.
If you're wondering why Speaker Pelosi, who currently has something like a seventy vote majority in the House, is incapable of shepherding through a bill deemed critical to her caucus - well, one could go into great detail in describing why, but really: "not very good at her job" will do just fine.
Via Hot Air.
PS: Why, yes. I am laughing at this admission of hers. One of the perks of victory, even if this is just a tactical one.
