Let It Go, Dude

Lisa Murkowski talks about a health care vote in the Senate:

I don’t believe there are votes sufficient in the Senate to repeal health care reform. And if there were, you’re still dealing with the president, whose signature domestic legislative accomplishment was the health care bill. So he's not going to allow for the repeal. He would veto that. So we're in this situation where there's some messaging going on. I happen to believe, and I stated this repeatedly during the campaign, that the bill that was passed through the Congress is not a bill that I have I supported, it's not a bill that I think helps to reduce our health care costs, and I think we've got to get rid of it.

Joe Miller tweets :

Miller, applying the same calm rigor with which he approached the Senate race, doesn't appreciate that what Murkowski is saying is obviously true.
