Told Ya So?

Again, I'm still not convinced that the beast is dead, but as we noted previously, the Reconciliation Route appears to be a dead end. That theory received some major evidentiary assistance today:

"The Senate Parliamentarian has ruled that President Barack Obama must sign Congress’ original health care reform bill before the Senate can act on a companion reconciliation package ..."

This is significant because, if true, it would appear to represent an insurmountable problem for House members who might have relied on the Senate's word that reconciliation would, in fact, occur.

For those gullible CongressCritters, I've got a bridge to sell you, too.
