According to sources in the leadership's office, Harry Reid has the CBO's estimate of the merged Senate bill in hand and is "very pleased" with the numbers. The rest of the world should get a look at it sometime today.

Reid's very pleased because he isn't going to be relying on subsidies to buy mandatory private insurance. The rest of us are pretty doggone concerned.

haha i thought the same thing although I expect that the Medicare tax on the wealthy will make the difference and the subsidies won't get killed (HOPEFULLY). That being said they need a strong individual mandate and for God sakes some cost control needs to survive, PLEASE!

Harry is my Idol!
His mannerism's
His stylin' doo,
I feel jealous of all those
young male interns who get
his personal mentoring.

Thanks Harry,
I'm sure we are going
to feel secure and warm
and fuzzy in your hands.

Good Luck with your re-election.
