Now Democrats say this vote is about “history.” No, it’s about their history. As with past failures to federalize health care, the air in 2009 is full of static-high unemployment, Afghanistan, a terrorist prison in Illinois and a petulant White House. The Democrats’ familiar problems with the politics of universal health care have turned the bill into one of the most degraded legislative exercises in congressional history. Left-wing Dems like Howard Dean are screaming “kill” the Senate bill, suggesting a progressive Jonestown over it. Public support is below 40%. This is probably the final death struggle for universal health care. They may let Harry Reid’s Senate seat itself go down in the bloodbath over the 70-year obsession. Anyone remotely opposed to this idea had better step forward. History says ObamaCare isn’t a done deal til the fat lady votes.
