Thus Begins the Reconciliation Amendment Game

Sen. Tom Coburn is playing real good politics with his first amendment proposal to the reconciliation package – an amendment denying Viagra to sex offenders as part of ObamaCare.  It’s good politics because it will force Democrats to either vote for Coburn’s amendment or vote against it.  If they vote against it, they go on the record supporting Viagra for sex offenders.  Imagine the campaign commercials!  If they vote for it, it changes the reconciliation bill instantly, thus forcing another vote in the House once the bill is complete.  Great politics, and it takes the Democrats off their game.
