Democrats are panicking about a Scott Brown win in the Massachusetts Senate special election. If Brown wins, they lose their filibuster proof majority in the Senate. The only way to pass the current bill would be to ram it through the House with no changes. There is little guarantee that desperate attempt would work.
AP reported via Breitbart:
A victory by Scott Brown over Democrat Martha Coakley would give Senate Republicans enough to block the bill with a filibuster.
A newly discussed fallback would require House Democrats to approve the Senate-passed bill without changes. President Barack Obama could sign it into law without another Senate vote. House leaders would urge the Senate to make changes later under a complex plan the would require only a simple majority.
