32. You are re-writing history. Obama got in back in 2008, and was inaugurated in 2009.

Your quoting the relevant numbers relating to 2011, that is rather duplicitous.

By end of Jan 2009, we had some 56 "D" Senators, 2 Independents, in the US Senate, and of course, the remaining 42 Senators were Republicans.

As far as filibuster effrots, would Republicans such as Martinez, Collins, Snowe and Murkowski have filibustered a health insurance situation that included the public option. Not sure they would ahve.? Seems to me that the entire premise here is off base.

As far as the rest of the US Congress, for 2009, the Democrats held 233 seats, while the Republicans held 202.

The Health Care/ Helath Insurance Reform matter was over by late Spring 2010. So what the situation in 2011 has to do with the discussion, I can't say for sure, but it seems like you were simply being mis-leading.
