    Democrats in Congress said all the right things Thursday to show they were dutifully heeding the president’s call to keep plugging away on a health reform bill.

    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada convened a strategy session with his top lieutenants. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California pledged to leap over any hurdle that got in her way.

    But listen more closely, and it’s clear health care is already falling to the back of the legislative line, behind the Democrats’ feverish new focus on jobs and the economy.

    Health care reform didn’t even make the cut when New York Sen. Chuck Schumer ticked off the party’s priorities Thursday.

    “The president said jobs is the No. 1 issue before us in 2010,” Schumer said at a news conference. “In fact, the three top issues on our agenda this year are jobs, jobs and jobs.”

    Don't trust these asses. They will try and sneak it through one way or the other.

    They are sending mixed signals. One things for sure. Pelosi, Reid and Obama all want it passed and they'll do whatever they can to cram it through thwarting the overwhelming will of the people.

    I won't feel that this bill is safely killed unless it hasn't passed by the time the Republicans take control of Congress AND they are all sworn in next year.

    I feel the same way. These polecat Democrats give off a repugnant odor that stinks to high heaven.
