Pelosi: We Have Votes to Nationalize Health Care …Update: Maybe Not


So much for that blue dog myth.
Speaker Pelosi says she has the votes to nationalize health care.
The AP reported:

Democrats command the votes needed to pass a sweeping health care bill through the House, Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Wednesday, an unexpected statement that quickly drew a biting response from rank-and-file conservatives demanding changes in President Barack Obama’s trademark legislation.

The House’s top Democrat also signaled strongly that lawmakers will soon incorporate a provision to curtail growth in Medicare costs into the legislation, although she said it would be done in a way that “respects the prerogatives” of Congress.

UPDATE: Maybe not.
