    If they're needed to make 60. This act is supposed to conclude with the votes lining up along party lines, but if a couple of Dems rebel, some Republicans will be permitted to take their place.

    •  If you're right, then we *have* 60 votes (0+ / 0-)

      and we just have to figure out how much improving the bill in conference still gets us Snowe and Collins.

      We're still in a better position, in that case, than passing no bill.  I refer you to all of the comments below talking about what a disaster that would be for Democrats -- comments from people who, paradoxically, want the bill to fail!
