Mark Sanford not optimistic on OCare repeal, tells me that "full repeal was, in essence, a pipe dream from the very start."

I want to get back to this comment at a future date, but first we need to bury the pipe dream and then pack the hole full of M-80s, det cord and a lit match before we run for cover (why yes, I had an interesting childhood).
Time to call Congress. We need to thank Democrats for staying firm, welcome the No vote’s, strengthen the undecided and waverers and scare the Yes votes. There is a strong rumor that a new round of amendments will be coming through sometime soon that will throw more money into the high cost risk pool but who knows.
Demand a CBO score for this complex bill that touches 17% of the economy. That is the easiest ask. No CBO, No Vote.
