    From the story above:

    A Democratic leadership source told TPMDC they are considering options for turning the Ryan plan into a bill. Once that's done the Democrats would put the bill on the floor, forcing Republicans to vote for or against a plan they don't want to talk about.

      which says

      A Democratic leadership source told TPMDC they are considering options for putting the Ryan plan on the floor, forcing Republicans to vote for or against a plan they don't want to talk about.This appears to be the Ryan bill, with seven GOP co-sponsors.

      not sure where the other came from in your or mcJ's blockquote.  but yeah, if you're right and we have to be the ones to write the bill and put up some sponsors, that would be idiotic.

      51 senators is a majority.
      no more excuses.
