    As Markos pointed out, however, Republicans will almost certainly block Landrieu's bill precisely because it fails to achieve the goal that they really care about: Ending Obamacare. But let's imagine what would happen if they decided to get behind it.
    I would humbly suggest that Harry has to bring it to the floor for a vote before it can be blocked.

    You know that Harry will bring this to a vote based on the President's effort today?  

    Do tell, how do you know this?

    Curious minds are curious...

      Congressional Democrats need the cover that they want the fix. If Reid does not bring it on the floor, many Democrats will vote for the Republican plan allowing new substandard plans to be sold.

      What Obama is essentially saying is that if no new law is passed, he won't enforce the law with respect to the selling of old substandard plans for one year. This can be done without congressional approval.
