The left is so partisan they can’t even compromise with themselves on their own health bill. Pelosi announced today that:
"In its present form without any changes I don't think it's possible to pass the Senate bill in the House, I don't see the votes for it at this time."
At the same time, Press Secretary Robert Gibbs told reporters there have been White House meetings focusing on a scenario that “merges the House and Senate products.”
Pelosi’s Democrats can’t accept the health bill by Reid’s Democrats, and vice versa.
My question is, how are Republicans supposed to cut a bipartisan compromise with Democrats when the Democrats can’t even work out a partisan compromise amongst themselves?
Remember this the next time a Dem squeals about wanting the GOP to act in a bipartisan manner. It isn’t about compromise for Democrats, its about power.
A final thought. What is the difference between the Republican threat to use the Nuclear Option and Democrats making the same threat? The Democrats only purpose was to wield power. They want to force an entirely partisan bill through the Senate in the face of 100% Republican opposition. The Republican threat was solely to release the logjam of Bush judicial nominees that were being blocked by Democrats, who refused to even allow the confirmation votes to occur, because they knew they could not even hold their own party together on those votes.
