Waterloo, the GOP and #HC Crazies (with video)

MOX, video (05:28).

On the floor of the House, Jim McDermott plays pundit on the GOP's "Waterloo" strategy.

"Has Obama's Health Care Win Driven Conservatives Crazy?" (David Corn):
Not all progressives have been enthusiastic about President Barack Obama's health care overhaul from a policy perspective. It cedes a lot of control to private insurance companies; there is no public option. But they have at least one good reason to love the package: it has driven conservatives crazy.
"Obama's health insurance rule - it was a GOP idea" (AP):
Republicans were for President Barack Obama's requirement that Americans get health insurance before they were against it. The obligation in the new health care law is a Republican idea that's been around at least two decades. It was once trumpeted as an alternative to Bill and Hillary Clinton's failed health care overhaul in the 1990s. These days, Republicans call it government overreach.
