    Whether Republicans are shamed into going along with a fix or kill it in the house, Democrats win and so does Mary Landrieu. There is no permanent damage from this temporary fix. Even if the fix is questionable public policy, getting the ACA off the ground is whats important. It can all be fixed when Dems take the House in 2014.  That doesn't happen unless Mary's plan or something like it gets us over this speed bump. The other upside is that the deceitful insurance industry is now tied in knots and the Republicans are left with no good alternative once again.

    Patriotism is the last refuge to which a scoundrel clings. Steal a little and they throw you in jail. Steal a lot and they make you king.... Dylan
