Oh here we go again. Sen. Barrasso repeats his claim that it should require a 70 or 80 vote super-majority to pass the health care bill. Never mind that the Republicans have never held themselves to that same standard. And he's got all the talking points down as usual. "Step-by-step", "the bill's too large", "the public doesn't want this". He did forget to mention the health savings accounts in this interview.

This whole thing is just tiresome at this point. The Democrats and Obama have messed around negotiating with these people who are acting in bad faith and who will gladly lie and pretend that so many of the ideas that they supported are not already in his health care bill. Why they played the bipartisanship game with no votes in return is beyond me since it's allowed this sort of nonsense to grow legs.
