    There was an amendment put forward in one of the committees during HCR mark-up (can't recall which committee it was) that was to eliminate Medicare and Medicaid and was explicitly but in by a Dem as a put up or shut up vote. It went down with no yea votes and that really altered the debate and the politcal landscape didn't it?

    Not being flippant to you personally, but to the larger iea that these stunts mean anything.

    cheers,

    Mitch Gore

    Pass Medicare buy-in for all via reconciliation, since it is fiscally related (and sound) policy.
