      The TeaOP has the ability to override anything he might have the audacity to veto.

      Filibuster reform now. No more Gentleman's agreements.

      the "future" consequences of expanding Medicaid. They have veto override majorities if he opposes their will.
      Hopefully, the medical community, hospitals and insurance profiters get in the game and convince the dimwits that this is stupid.

        ..even they have the discipline necessary to override their own guy.  That's a hard sell.  But then I wouldn't expect it to get that far if he's not onboard....I think they'd stop short of passing it rather than forcing him to veto it.

        The real question is - as you noted - do the hospitals and BCBS have enough raw political muscle pull to make McCrory drag the LittleTeaPots out of the muck?

        I'm not at all optimistic....but on the other hand I don't think it's like Voter Id where the outcome is certain....
