This just in:

Democrats place new roadblock to health care bill

Nothing particularly new:
Two centrist senators Tuesday threw up a roadblock to salvaging President Barack Obama's health care overhaul ...

Sens. Evan Bayh, D-Ind., and Blanche Lincoln, D-Ark. ... said they would oppose the strategy Democratic leaders are considering to reconcile the House and Senate bills and put comprehensive legislation on Obama's desk.

That approach involves using a special budget-related procedure to go around Republican opponents in the Senate, a calculated risk sure to inflame critics on the political right.


Um, who cares what they think? The whole point is up to 9 Democrats can say they'll oppose it and it doesn't matter. I find the use of the term roadblock to describe something they have no control over to be pretty funny.
