Thought it might be worth noting that as recently as March 17, John Boehner was saying that health reform would pass only over his dead body.

Conservadem Dan Boren was somewhat more judicious on March 4:

Rep. Dan Boren of Oklahoma, a Blue Dog Democrat opposed to the bill, has expressed concerns that tax increases on small businesses and mandates on employers will lead to more job losses.

“They’ll have to walk across my dead body if they want my vote on this issue,” Boren told Fox News on Wednesday. “This is so galvanizing in my district. I think the votes are not there and I don’t see where we get them.”

Instead of health reform, Boren seems to be pushing an insane scheme to upset the Taiwan status quo and start a war with China.
