  •  One guess (4+ / 0-)

    is they will add the repeal on the medical device excise tax as an amendment. Although that might be a poison pill.

    Another scenario is that most Republicans vote 'present' and leave the House Democrats to pass the bill, but that would look really bad for Boehner.

    So I think the amended bills is how they will go. Maybe that has been the Republican's plan all along. Get back some of what they want in reconciliation and save face.

    It is possible to read the history of this country as one long struggle to extend the liberties established in our Constitution to everyone in America. - Molly Ivins
