First off let me say that I think Senator Tom Coburn rocks! I love how he called out the Democratic Reps who were changing their votes on the healthcare legislation. Well, he has seemed to have made a new lose/lose situation for the Senate Democrats.
He is proposing an Amendment to the Healthcare Bill. If the Senate were to vote for any amendments to the bill it would have to go back to the House of Reps (unless they play a game in the rules committee;). So the Democrats are planning on voting no on every amendment that comes up. But can they really vote no on this one?
The Amendment is titled “No Erectile Dysfunction Drugs To Sex Offenders”. Who can vote against that? So either the Senators will vote against it and send it back to the House. And then maybe it could pass again (please, please, please) or…. They vote against the amendment. Then can you see every campaign against them!
This could be the nail in many of their coffins. Allahpundit gives an over/under of 2 days before the 1st Youtube ad about Harry Reid wanting to give rapists Viagra if the Senate votes this down;).
