    "And it's also a victory for whatever math/civics professor taught Ted Cruz that when 2 Democrats join 228 Republicans to cast a vote opposed by 47% of the House and 94% of Democrats that you've attained not just a bipartisan majority, but a strong bipartisan majority."

    How does 2 = 6% of the Democrats in the House? Or idd a bunch of Dems not vote?

    Because from where I'm sitting, any Democrat voting for this idiocy, or not voting in against it outright, even, isn't worth a penny of my money or a second of my time.

      were there any that voted for the original healthcare act?
      can you imagine if democrats had used routine debt ceiling or the budget votes to "retry/revote" some of the shit bush got passed?
