    This allows Republicans to shift this debate to ACA in isolation of everything else.  This effectively re-legislates something that's already been passed.  In the past, dems have equivocated with the bullying, irrational tactics of the republicans - effectively rewarding each temper tantrum by compromising around their extreme positions as if they are rational and reasonable points of view.  For once, the democrats are holding up their boundaries and saying that - yes we will work with the other side, but only when they agree to play by the rules of our established government.

    It's a breath of fresh air.

    Howard Dean will always be my president.
