In other words, the GOP is going to exploit every procedural nook and cranny, every legislative loophole available in order to obstruct health care reform. Even if the Democrats get the required votes to pass it, the GOP is going to make the process as lengthy and difficult as possible.
Republicans are dealing in bad faith here. They don’t care about governing this country–all they care about is partisan politicking and playing political games. We have a broken health care system, one that needlessly kills 45,000 Americans a year; instead of pitching in to help pass the reform we need, the GOP is trying to delay that reform as much as possible.
