  •  House Rs prove repeal is unpopular by actions: (0+ / 0-)

    The limits on hearings and debates shows that the Republicans know they can't win by having ANY debate on the merits of HCR.

    Despite Joe Scarbourough's annoucment to the contrary, the only thing less popular than HCR is repeal and return to the pre reform status quo and it's a loser.

    So house Rs make it a checklist item for pro forma action: okay, we voted for repeal, now teabaggers have to leave us alone.

    Boehner: the only person to ever pass out checks to representatives on the floor of the House.
