The Undead Bill

Josh Marshall talks to some sources:

There does seem to be some continuing effort to see how a Senate bill plus amending bill deal might work -- both for what would be needed in political terms and what would be workable under reconciliation rules. But there's also a lot of happy talk about generally marginal and meaningless reforms that might be pushed through as consolation prizes. And what seems unmistakably clear is that the White House is taking an extremely hands off approach to the whole situation.

That should change, in my view. More of the latest chatter on the Hill here. My rethink of the lessons of the last week due soon.
