It's not like Rep. Gifford was a cheerleader for the health care bill. Delay on this very serious matter of repeal is only due respect for such a disaster.

At least the Republicans have some class. Democrats like jamming MAJOR bills and laws down our throats on Holidays. Nancy P. would be drooling at the opportunity to push some ultra-left wing law through while no one was looking.
