Don't you guys read the headlines on Yahoo. The bulletin came out at 12:51. All the asbestos stocks are falling apart.How can he say yes or no at 4:00 when the ins.Co. just through a wrence into this bill???? Comments.BH
Insurance has been opposed to this bill for months.
Right now, Specter is trying to present a bill with unanimous Republican support out of committee. At some point he is just going to cut bait and present the bill to committee. As between pissing off manufacturers, veterans and the unions or pissing off trial lawyers and insurance companies, I think most will choose to piss off the lawyers and the insurance companies (I don't know if it will make a difference that it also happens to be the right thing to do).
If it gets past committee, I hear a lot of theories about what will happen... what I DON'T hear anymore is that it will get stuck on filibuster.
We've placed our bets, if you think the small swings we see on light volume is something, you are going to have a heart attack when you see the swing we see when the vote comes out of committee.
