BREAKING: Parliamentarian Deals Fatal (?) Blow to ObamaCare

Says that Obama would have to sign the Senate bill into law before the Senate could proceed to modify it with reconciliation.

In other words, the House members would have to believe the President's (and Harry Reid's) assurances that the Senate won't just quit when its version of healthcare reform becomes law. Remember, the Senate already rejected the House version when it created its own bill.

Summing Up the Past 24 Hours: The Congressional Hispanic Caucus makes a demand that already derailed healthcare reform once. The Congressional Black Caucus complains that Obama isn't listening to them. The co-chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus announces that the President's stumping across the country isn't doing a lick of good. The Stupak Twelve announce that there will be no deal. And now the Parliamentarian makes it that much harder to get wavering Congressmen on board.

Stick a fork in it.

Meanwhile, Nancy "Nero" Pelosi keeps protesting "there's just a few minor, technical things" to work out.
