There Goes One

As reported in the previous post, “after her initial 220ā€“215 victory, Pelosi can afford to lose only two net votes” when the reconciled final version of the widely differing House and Senate Health Care bills comes out of committee to get re-voted on by both houses of Congress. (The Senate Democrats, on the other hand, cannot lose a single vote.) Well, what we can only hope is the first domino in an avalanche has fallen: Representative Parker Griffith, a freshman Democrat from Alabama who had originally voted for ObamaCare, is switching parties to join the GOP.

“A radiation oncologist who founded a cancer treatment center, Griffith plans to blast the Democratic health care bill as a prime reason for his decision to switch parties – and is expected to cite his medical background as his authority on the subject.”

Interesting that this makes another Congressional doctor who’s throwing sand in the gears of the rush to ObamaCare. If only we had more doctors and less lawyers in the Congress (or indeed, more of anyone and less lawyers), ObamaCare might not have made it even this far, at least not in this tentacled horror form.
