I read this last night, and thought to myself, "Yep." If the GOP folds on health care, they're done. Finished, stick a fork in 'em, wrap 'em up and toss them away done. And not within a decade, they'll be finished before the 2010 election campaigns even start. And rightfully so. If the GOP can't stop this monstrosity from being passed, they don't deserve to exist any more. Actually, there's some debate as to whether or not they deserve to exist at all today, given the way that they've become nothing more than the Democrat Lite Party. If the GOP doesn't stand firm against government health care, they then deserve to have the Communist Jackass label slapped on them, so that they can at least be honest about their intentions.
As an aside, if the Libertarian Party had a robust, pro-USA foreign policy, rather than the "EEEEEEEEEK! RUN AWAY! STAY HOME!" policy that it has now, it would have already crushed the GOP. Just sayin'.
Hmmmmm. That oughta get me a few comments.
