Republicare Rumpus--Round 2

(Image by Gary Varvel)
A few days ago, the Republican-led House passed their version of Healthcare reform.  Which unlike the last time, the bill failed in "Round 1."

Like Obamacare before it--the number of Democrats who voted for it equaled the number of Republicans who voted for the original. 

That is:  Zero.

But unlike their opposition to Obamacare, not every House Republican was on board with this newer version

While some Republicans may be wishy-washy about overhauling Obamacare, one of the top Democrats claim Americans will die if Republican re-tuning is implemented.

Talk about a case of the pot calling the kettle black.

Jake Trapper of CNN called-out one Democratic senator on their party's credibility problem.

But Republicans shouldn't be popping open the champagne either--for these three reasons. 

I'm not hopeful that any meaningful change to healthcare will be mad--by either party. 

Charles Krauthammer is even more pessimistic and predicts:  We'll be in a single-payer system in less than seven years.

Which, according to this oldie but goodie, may have been Obama's master plan all along...
