Edward M. Kennedy, known as “the lion of the Senate”, was also known to be a supporter of the health care reform bill. Now with his passing away, would Democrats and President Barack Obama see it as their opportunity to get a few more unsure supporters off the bench to get the health care reform passed? It really would not surprise me. Nothing would at this point. Having heard Senators and Congressman calling those opposed to the bill names and talking about using the reconciliation process to bypass the opposition, why would they not stoop to using a man who is now resting in peace? I think we will hear it by tomorrow at the latest. I can hear it now, “Let’s do this for our good friend and loyal servant Edward M. Kennedy, it is what he would have wanted.” I hope that none of those that are leaning away from the health care bill would be so easily swayed. But, as with all things, only time will tell.

This opinion is based on the following article:
