Democrats to Use Budget-Reconciliation to Pass ObamaCare?

I frankly never really believed that Nancy Pelosi would abandon the push for healthcare "reform." And this post at National Review sounds pretty on target:

Rep. Paul Ryan (R., Wis.), the ranking member of the House Budget Committee, tells National Review Online that House Democrats are planning to use the budget-reconciliation process in order to pass Obamacare. “They’re meeting with each other this weekend to pursue it,” says Ryan. “I’ve spoken with many Democrats and the message is this: They’re not ready to give up. They’ve waited their entire adult lives for this moment and they aren’t ready to let 100,000 pesky votes in Massachusetts get in the way of fulfilling their destiny. They’ll look at every option and spend the next four or five days figuring it out.”
Compare to the Washington Post, "Pelosi says House cannot pass Senate's health-care bill without changes" (via Memeorandum).

The far left's current coup has two linchpins: CommieCare and Crap & Tax.

Crap & Tax they can now get through the EPA with no further congressional approval.

Sad that so many still don't get that.

CommieCare might just make it through without another congressional vote, either, as I would put nothing past the current congressional leadership.

These people are all communists, and they, along with their predecessors, have been working toward this moment for nearly 100 years.

To think they are going to now just slink off into a corner and die without putting up one hell of a fight is pure folly.

They are dead serious about completing their takeover, and they still have until January of 2013 to complete it - unless the repubs win enough seats in both the Senate and the House next November to override Obama's vetoes.

If they don't, the coup will roll on.

Don't think that just because Scott Brown won the swimmer's Senate seat that all is going to be right with the world.

Obama still has 59 votes in the Senate, and a handful of RINOS to play with.
