Kill the Bill!
Tipping point? Status Quo was a pejorative term last week:
As the Senate sprints to pass a health-care bill by Christmas, the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll finds that those believing President Obama's health-reform plan is a good idea has sunk to its lowest level.

Just 32 percent say it's a good idea, versus 47 percent who say it's a bad idea.
In addition, for the first time in the survey, a plurality prefers the status quo to reform. By a 44-41 percent margin, respondents say it would be better to keep the current system than to pass Obama's health plan.
It's a shame that the federal legislature's job isn't to (a) carry out the will of the people and/or (b) legislate in accordance with the Constitution. Were it so, this choice would be easy.
Congressman Crockett, pick up line two; there's a Horatio Bunce who would like a word or two with you...
