You do realize that Senate Republicans just effectively voted for NOT REPEALING OBAMA CARE.
Since Obama is now an even handed guy -- and a staunch lower tax type -- his veto next year of the House's attempt to defund the health bill will be seen as a prudent affirmation of an existing law.
He gets his arms treaty and more.
How much would the Senate Republicans give for two more years tax extension?
Deficit Hawks. What a joke.
