Karl Rove charts out Healthcare Vote
In typical Karl Rove style, Mr. Rove is now charting out the outcome of the healthcare reform vote.
Here’s the latest on the healthcare vote (videos):
The bill will still wind up passing with only Democratic votes, and only by the slimmest margin. A White House official says Obama is preparing to call — and take phone calls from — House Democrats ahead of the vote, just in case. And the Senate must still pass the reconciliation package of amendments; that’s a much tougher lift than in the House, because of rules that allow the GOP to try to pick off pieces of that bill — or add mischievous amendments — while it’s on the floor. But if the House vote does go as Democrats say they’re expecting, the Senate bill will head to Obama for signature into law.
