I’m sure this will have the Senators in tears. Maybe the way to pass cap and tax is to take the next House bill that renames whatever is left in WV not already named after Byrd and then “fix” it via reconciliation to include cap and tax.

Senator Reid: Let’s Do the Numbers, Shall We?
Harry Reid has stirred up controversy with his recent comments likening opponents of the health care bill with those who obstructed civil rights and women’s rights legislation: Instead of joining us on the right side of history, all the Republicans can come up with is, ‘slow down, stop everything, let’s start over.’ If you think you’ve heard these same excuses before, you’re right.

Where is Ted?
The loudest and most liberal democrat and the voice of the democratic party for decades has gone missing….why? and where? It’s not like a Kennedy to sit on the sidelines while the most important presidential race takes place. For that matter, where is Senator Byrd? There was talk of his being hospitalized.
