Today Obama held a press conference in which he told us that Congress will do what it take to pass HELLthcare, and we can all assume that includes the nuclear option.
Here's an excerpt:
Here is Obama as an Ill. Senator in 2004 and again on the campaign trail in 2008 saying passing a bill with a 50 + 1 majority isn't how to pass health care.
No hope and change, just politics as usual.
