Since a majority opposes the health care bill, it’s not surprising that a majority opposes ramming it through using reconciliation:
A new poll suggests that a majority of Americans would oppose a move by Senate Democrats to use a parliamentary procedure called ‘reconciliation’ to avoid a Republican filibuster and pass their health care reform legislation by a simple majority vote.
A Gallup survey released Thursday morning indicates that 52 percent of the public opposes using reconciliation, with 39 percent favoring the move, and 9 percent unsure.
Democrats say that democracy demands that they do this. (Not kidding!) I wonder if they see the irony.
