Dems Don't Expect Obamacare to Survive

How can we tell?
We begin with last week's story on Barney Frank attempting to retire with dignity:
I think we paid a terrible price for health care,” he told Jason Zengerle of New York magazine. “I would not have pushed it as hard. As a matter of fact, after [Republican] Scott Brown won [Sen. Kennedy’s old seat in Massachusetts], I suggested going back. I would have started with financial reform but certainly not health care.
Brad Miller, also retiring, sings the same tune, as reported in The Hill:
I think we would all have been better off — President Obama politically, Democrats in Congress politically, and the nation would have been better off — if we had dealt first with the financial system and the other related economic issues and then come back to healthcare
Another Dem stepping down is Dennis Cardoza, who
also criticized his party’s handling of the issue, and said he repeatedly called on his leaders to figure out how they were going to pay for the bill, and then figure out what they could afford.
They all thought Obamacare was such a disaster they voted for it, see? And NOW they tell us they should have been dealing with the budget? Gee, you think?

Update: more defections on Obamacare, but also on Keystone!
