No illusions please

Quoth David Frum, formerly speechwriter for one George W. Bush:

"...No illusions please: This bill will not be repealed. Even if
Republicans scored a 1994 style landslide in November, how many votes
could we muster to re-open the 'doughnut hole' and charge seniors more
for prescription drugs? How many votes to re-allow insurers to rescind
policies when they discover a pre-existing condition? How many votes
to banish 25 year olds from their parents' insurance coverage? And
even if the votes were there – would President Obama sign such a
repeal?

We followed the most radical voices in the party and the movement, and
they led us to abject and irreversible defeat...."
