  •  REally? I disagree (0+ / 0-)

    Haven't we learned anything about Republicans?  I don't doubt for one minute that they'll try to have their cake and eat it too.  Mike Ferguson types will vote for the bill.  It will get vetoed.  The veto will not be overridden and he's safe.  The GOP will have prevented government from looking effective and he can prance around Somerset County saying, "Looky wot I did!"
    SCHIP may be the most popular initiative on the planet but that's never stopped Republicans from failing to appreciate its merits or public support.
    How can I say this with so much confidence? 3 words:
    Stem Cell Research.  

    I rest my case.

    •  Yes, that's the biggest danger (0+ / 0-)

      However, the comment I was responding to made the point that Republicans can make SCHIP unpopular using racist themes. I am just saying that there's no way in hell that they can do that given the atmosphere today.

      •  Tbis is true (0+ / 0-)

        The racism thing would go over like a lead zeppelin.  Of course killing SCHIP expansion will too but that probably won't stop it from happening.  Somehow, the GOP will make lemonade out of it.
