Republicans may want to “kill” President Obama’s version of health care reform, but without significant defections there’s not much they can do about it. Democrats control 60 seats in the Senate. They have 78 more seats than the Republicans in the House, where the majority can basically do whatever it wants. Yes, Republicans are rallying the opposition and will supply the largest single bloc of “no” votes. But without Democratic defections, it doesn’t mean anything. If a health care bill fails to pass, it will be because Democrats don’t vote for it.
