Damn, that did not last long. After Scott Brown’s victory that Barney was all about respecting the voice of the people. Now Barney is like damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead:
"I'm easy. I'm strongly inclined to vote for the thing, even though I don't like the health care tax thing," Frank told me. "But you know, I was ready to vote for the bill when I had people on the left yelling at me not to vote for it. So you know I'll vote for any of it... to try and move the process along."
Oh, he is easy all right. My guess is Barney has decided on retirement and figures he will drop one last turd in America’s lap. The big question is, can Nancy find 217 more Barney’s to accept the Senate version of the bill as-is? I still think that is going to be a very heavy lift for the House Dems.
