Obama Tells Fox News 'Procedural' Spat Over Health Bill Vote Doesn't Worry Him

   Very interesting that Obama was so concerned with the idea of an up or down vote in the Senate when they were preparing the public for the nuclear option, but now he isn't concerned with the policies and procedures.  Let's be real...if a Democrat is afraid to vote for this (I don't care the reason) then the answer is no.  If a piece of legislation is worth the time and effort to write, debate and pass, you shouldn't have to buy votes off, or use tricks in order to pass a measuer without actually taking a vote.  Besides, the public in general doesn't want this bill, which is not the same thing as not wanting reform, and if it gets passed, there will be a huge backlash this fall.  I don't think it matters whether you vote for the bill, or vote for the extra junk that allows the bill to happen without a vote.  I'd vote for anyone who will try and overturn this garbage if they manage to force it through.
