What many Republican senators still don’t seem to understand is that the health-care fight isn’t merely one fight in a larger war; it is the war. Lose it, and we can’t reverse, not ever, the massive infringement on our liberties. It is tommyrot and poppycock, deeply dishonest, to claim that Obamacare, once passed, can later be repealed. Once it is law, the only way to change it is to pass a new law — and to do that would require overcoming a Democratic filibuster far more fierce than any that Republicans have put up. Republicans now hold 40 Senate votes out of 100; to repeal Obamacare in future years will require 60 votes. Yet only 33 (or 34) senators come up for re-election every two years. To think that Obamacare opponents will pick up 20 seats in time to reverse course before it fully takes effect — especially against the weight of all the big businesses that in the meantime will have become stakeholders in the new system — is akin to suggesting that Sen.
