{{{The Thing That Wouldn’t Leave}}}: Pelosi Says Dems Will Have Health Bill

Egad. The Rocky Horror Picture Show that our government has become, continues to appall. First ObamaCare is dead because of the Brown election,  then it’s not dead, and then it is truly dead, stick a fork in it, and then :

The top House Democrat says giving up on a health care bill isn’t an option.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Wednesday, “I don’t see that as a possibility…we will have something.”

The California Democrat said today’s health care system is financially unsustainable, and it’s not in the American character to allow tens of millions of citizens to go uninsured.

Pelosi didn’t say whether the final bill will be the sweeping overhaul sought by President Barack Obama, or smaller-scale legislation that accomplishes only some of his goals. Democrats were on the verge of passing far-reaching legislation, but the loss of a Massachusetts Senate seat has cost them the 60-vote majority needed to deliver.

UPDATE:

In case you didn’t get the “The Thing That Wouldn’t Leave” reference,  (Gosh this dates me) – it’s a classic skit from the original SNL:

John Belushi played the slobby, inconsiderate house guest of nice couple Jane Curtain and Bill Murray. All the rest of the guests had  gone home, it’s past midnight, and Belushi won’t stop flipping channels, and raiding their fridge.

Horrifying!

And hilarious.

UPDATE II:

EEEEEEEEEK!!!

UPDATE III:

CNN Poll shows 69% say scrap the bill, start over

But will the thing take a hint, and leave?

UPDATE IV:

Ace says update II was a false alarm.

    Ace is now saying that that’s a false alarm. Pelosi still says she doesn’t have the votes.

    But you know they’re still scheming get this thing done one way or another.
