It will be political suicide for the Dems if they vote in the health care bill. In part because it is generally unpopular with the American people - according to every poll on the issue. More importantly, they will be doing it even though that they know the people do not want it.
Worse, the people know, that they know that the people do not want it but will pass it anyway. This utter contempt for voters in the land of the free and the home of the brave will surely lead to a political rout in 2010.
