Fatal flaw - Brown's election may yet defeat Obamacare!

As you know, once Senator Brown was elected, the Democrats had to cheat to get Obamacare passed. They by-passed conference committee because they no longer had their 60 votes.

Well, conference is where they automatically put in the severability clause which insures that, if one part of the law is struck down, the other parts are still law.

Because Obamacare never went to conference, it has no severability clause. If any of it is stuck down, all of it is. Some states, like Virginia, have a really good chance of getting parts of it struck down...

This doesn't lesson our responsibility to fight as hard as we can in these elections because the same people will try to pass the same thing again, but it does warm the cockles of the heart.

It also points out again how important our work for Scott Brown was in January.

Let's make tomorrow and November 2nd another January 19th!
