I Don't Tweet
But I did just now:
Dear House, #hcr solution is simple. Pass Sen bill now, then refuse to pass anything ELSE the Sen sends until they fix it. #voila
Why are House Dems held up begging for assurances and promises from the Senate? Why would they agree to that at this point? They like their bill! It's basic negotiation/manipulation: Wait until there's something the Senate really wants, and then make your deal. Then we get a bill asap, and eventually the right incentive will come along to get 51 Senate Dems to pass some changes w/ reconciliation. Remember: reform won't go into effect for years. There's not much time to pass the bill, but there's plenty of time to fix it.
