As Mrs. Greenspan frames it for Jane,

Mitchell: Civil war?

Hamsher: I think that there's going to be a problem. I think that the White House did not factor in that members of the House would have a very difficult time in their heavily leaning Democratic districts taking a bad vote and there are enough of them that could keep this thing from passing without Obama stepping in and committing to get the public plan that he campaigned on.

What Atrios says.

Would be more than happy to lose Rahm's Kids in Congress, and hope we do.

Now I am no Nate Silver, but 20 less house seats means 237 for the D's, and if every loss is a gain for the R's (which is rediculous considering that they are as popular as roach spray) then they end with 198. Stull a 39 seat advantage.

Vaya con dios, Mother Fuckers!
