Zombie Rising: ObamaCare

Maybe pitchforks and torches (and lots of heavy-duty ropes) will be necessary after all. (Or does killing a zombie require a brain-shot?)

Hewitt interviews Sen. Kyl.

HH: There is some talk that the Democrats are going to try reconciliation, a jam down of their bitterly divisive, and almost certainly wrong-headed health care plan. What can you tell us about this?

JK: This is kind of breaking news. As you say, we’re just hearing it. We haven’t been formally advised, but we have it on relatively good authority. And this would be what they call the nuclear option. This would be we can’t do it with 60 votes, because now we have a new Senator from Massachusetts, so we’ll do it with 51.

Apparently they're adding $300Bn to the cost (making the real-world cost over $2.5 TRILLION) to sweeten the deal for the House.

HT: HotAir

Pure, unadulterated arrogance.
