  •  It's very simple. (0+ / 0-)

    If an eviscerated health plan is passed that actually lowers health care coverage for the poorest and most vulnerable, Obama has a failed administration.

    He won't get "the base" out again. His hands will be crippled. No one will give a damn to support Dems that are in some respects worse than the Repubs they replaced; whereas as an opposition the Dems could at least stonewall, as a majority they can actively destroy their very constituents.

    That will be very, very bad for the country. If both major parties are seen as basically useless and shills -- the legitimacy of the democratic process comes into doubt. It's a long, slow decline from that situation.
