God, Politics and Rock 'n' Roll: Why health care reform will pass
Excerpted from this post at God, Politics and Rock 'n' Roll
A majority of Americans oppose the health care reform bill making its way through Congress, but Congress will pass a bill anyway. That's because Democrats will face a completely dispirited base if they don't act on a primary issue among Democratic voters. With no base support, a candidate has NO chance. With the base, a candidate at least has the POSSIBILITY of re-establishing public support.
