"[W]hile a vote to blow up ObamaCare would have felt good today, it’d also spell trouble for valued institutions in the long run. In response to SCOTUS pushback in the ’30s, FDR attempted to pack the court (and newly succeeded). And today, the calls are back to get rid of the filibuster, which stands with the Electoral College as the last barriers between our Founding Fathers’ vision and popular democracy. And trust me. In popular democracy, responsibility and liberty don’t prevail. Ask the Jacobins.

So despite the temptation to hammer ObamaCare with budget reconciliation, cool your jets. Lose the battles if it means you may win the war," – Justin Green, The Daily Caller.
