From Mark Steyn over at NRO:
Easily Reconciled [Mark Steyn]
Kathryn, re Sam Donaldson panting for presidential “ruthlessness,” I tend to agree with Andy McCarthy’s post from a couple of days ago. In shoving health care down the throats of the American people in the teeth of overwhelming public opposition and any sense of parliamentary decency, the Democrats are in effect taking a bet on Republican wussiness — that, whatever passes, the GOP will have no stomach to undo, no matter the scale of their victory in November.
That seems to me an entirely rational calculation. The Dems will be punished; the Republicans will take over the committee chairmanships and be content, as they often are, to be in office rather than in power; and after a brief time out the Democrats will return to find their new statist behemoth still in place. From their point of view, it makes perfect sense.
The question is: What are Republicans willing to do about it?
