Last I checked, the House’s approval was still required and if any of the ‘pubs ever grew a pair, they might still bring things to a halt. It is theoretically possible...

Wrong!
Democracy is two lions and a lamb voting on lunch.

The House can adjourn, and it kills this Senate Bill for all time.

Obama has not won anything until we see how the House responds. They may cave as everyone here expects, or they may do something more creative. Who knows. We'll see.

The House has to vote on it. They can pass a different bill and force further negotiations. In fact, they should.

The dims had nothing... we owned the House, Senate and White House... they attacked Bush over Iraq and both destroyed the man’s reputation and his presidency. They were relentless and united. They controlled the debate and shaped the arguments and we must learn to do the same.

Rep. Spencer Bachus (R-Ala.), chairman of the Financial Services Committee, emerged from the meeting saying he would "shocked" if House doesn't amend the bill this afternoon and send it back to Senate.

"We're building a consensus that we have to address spending," he said. "The president won his election; I also won my election.”

The GOP retained control of the House. It won. And if they are afraid to use that power and control, they deserve to be defeated in 2014.
