We're starting to see the Democrats fold like a house of spineless cards, with Weiner, Dean and finally Sen. Jim Webb, shooting themselves in the foot. Health care reform is dead, the deficit will grow because of it and 45,000 uninsured people a year will die-18,000 from preventable deaths.What a worthless party.
Washington Post: As Democrats reel from the loss of a U.S. Senate seat in deep blue Massachusetts, Virginia Sen. Jim Webb becomes the first senator we've seen tonight to call for suspending all votes on health care until newly elected Republican Scott Brown can take office.
Some Democrats had been mulling trying to complete health care legislation before Brown can be seated, to maintain their 60 seat super majority in the senate. But if Webb--or others--oppose the move, the 60-vote margin would be gone and the maneuver impossible.
