On Democrat Health Reform and Robbing The Federal Bank

Byron York, chief political correspondent for the Washington Examiner, today explains why Democrats are pushing health care, even if it kills them. When you are in the middle of robbing the bank, it is too late to back out.

Democrats are in too deep to do anything else but rob the bank. The cost of failure to rob the bank is too high. They have passed the point of no return in deciding to hold up a bank. Whatever they do, they're guilty of something. They are doomed if they do, and doomed if they don't. They have already spent too much of their political capital.

There once was a federal bank robber named Reid,
He sought to get the reform deed done with speed.
Butdepositors resisted,
Opponents persisted.
Taxpayers turned doomsayers,
Budgeters became naysayers.
And Reid’s gang either had to bleed or recede.

According to York, "They're in the bank, they've got their guns out. They can run outside with no money, or they can stick it out, go through the gunfight, and get away with the money.’

That's it.Democrats are going through with it. Even if it kills them.
