    While the Senators have an average of 3.4 years before election, the house has an average of .92 years.

    They will face the rancor from the left and the right for voting for this deeply unpopular bill.  Both the blue dogs and the liberals have reasons enough to vote no.

    I hope they do.

      but I'm not feeling at all hopeful.  Even Weiner has pretty much laid down.

      I'm hoping my state reps, Peter DeFazio and Earl Blumenauer will vote against this bill.

      Obama was for the middle class before he was against it.

      •  Wiener and Nadler could do anything... (1+ / 0-)

        and keep their seats. It about 80% democratic districts.

        Of the 240+ dems, there are those who are much less secure, who only won on the coattails of a charismatic president and a horrible previous administration.

        They may be deciding whether this lousy misogynous bailout to insurers is worth ending their political career for.

      and bring the final bill into consistency with their version.
