This is it folks, you did the work, you achieved the impossible. Nancy Pelousi just admitted that the Senate health care bill version does not have the votes in the House of Representatives. The election of Scott Brown, which you were a big part of, achieved this. We fought and fought and at the last minute (second) this thing has been killed.
My health care/investor contact just checked in with me on this. He knows just what Pelosi's statement represents and just emailed me that the entire health care process has completely fallen apart, with a very small chance of passage now.
Don't let your guard down though, but for now we should be happy, yet apprehensive.

UPDATE: Democratic party cheerleader extrordanaire Ezra Klein thinks that Pelosi's quote was taken out of context. Nice try Ezra, you can put your pom-poms now (at least for a minute).
Crooks and Liars think that the HC bill is still a go, the Dems just need to push for an age 50 Medicare buy-in to salvage it. Oh yah, the writer thinks that Scott Brown's victory 'isn't a big deal'.
