Some Dems want to exchange one bad legislative idea for another idea that's just as bad

They want to shelve the abominable "climate change" legislation in favor of the equally bad idea of Obamacare.

Of course, the Obamanation wants it all:

"But the idea of putting healthcare before climate change contravenes the wishes of President Obama, who met Tuesday with Energy and Commerce Democrats and reinforced that he wants the House to tackle cap-and-trade before healthcare.

Obama called the meeting after cap-and-trade appeared to bog down in committee, without the votes to pass. That is likely to be tested next week, when Waxman is expected to leapfrog the subcommittee to hold a full-committee vote. That plan got more complicated Wednesday when Rep. G.K. Butterfield (D-N.C.), vice chairman of the subcommittee, objected to the plan.

Pelosi was adamant Wednesday that climate change will stay on track. While acknowledging that Democrats have undertaken 'a bigger agenda than we’ve had in the past", she said, 'I believe [climate change legislation] will be done this year.'

Those close to Pelosi say she figures healthcare has just as much chance to bog down."

God help me, I hope Pelosi's right about Obamacare bogging down.

And as far as her statement about the climate change legislation being "done" this year, I will take "done" as meaning "over", "not further considered", "kaput", or "filed in the circular file", as it well and truly deserves to be.
