The Beast that Will Not Die

Should Nancy Pelosi be unable to assemble sufficient votes to pass ObamaCare, look for ObamaCare to live on, to resurface after the November election, even if the Democrats lose a lot of seats. Jack Kemp, writing on tbirdnow.mee, looks ahead to such a possibility:

On the surface, a soon to be Democratic ex-Congressperson has nothing to further lose in voting for the ObamaCare Bill in mid-November or December. But there are other considerations they might have, including possibly not wanting to be associated with an ex-Speaker.

The only thing one can say with some degree of certainty is that the people who believe that manipulations and intrigues involving the ObamaCare bill, be it attempts to pass a first version with "reconciliations" or any other amended versions, will not see an end to this struggle until the new Congress meets... .

As Jack notes, this will be moot should Pelosi get her majority vote. But there is no reason to believe the issue must come to a head by any particular date if the carrots and the sticks haven't worked yet. As Pelosi said, she never stops whipping.
