Now let's take a look at the sick and dying bill the Congress has been trying to revive, over and over.
Seen today on Drudge was this little walk down memory lane:
'END' OF THE 'END GAME' OR 'THE END'?

Let's think about this for a moment. The Democrats have control of both houses of Congress and the White House. All of last year, they had a filibuster-proof super majority in the Senate. And yet, they could not get a bill passed and sent to the President for a signature.
Doesn't this indicate to anyone besides the majority of the American people that this is not a good bill? Maybe it's time to stop heroic measures on this one and allow it to die an honorable death.
Addendum: Not so far off topic is this video that clearly speaks for itself:
I have had my differences with Sen Byrd over the years on certain issues, but he got this one right.
