Reid def retreating
Wow. This from Politico:
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Wednesday that there is no firm commitment for Democrats to rush a health care bill through Congress this year.
“First of all, we’re not going to rush into anything,” he said. “We’re going to wait until the new senator arrives until we do anything more on health care.”
Still, this is huge. The possible unfortunate downside is that ultimately a better, but still horrible, health care overhaul gets passed with some Republican support.
