  •  but Sen Dems need a vote on the Landrieu (3+ / 0-)

    bill to fix the "if you like your plan, you can keep it" misleading statement.  The Landrieu bill is a win, win for Democrats as it provides political cover from Obama's screwup statement but implements new consumer protections.

    As a result of the latter, the GOP House will never allow a vote on the Landrieu bill after it passed the Senate.

    There is no risk of its becoming law (because House would never allow a vote on it), but it would be a decided political boost for Senate Democratic candidates getting hammered with millions of dollars of Koch money already being spent on radio and TV ads about how "Senator X lied about keeping your plan if you like it.  Call Senator X and tell [her/ him] to let you keep your plan."
