House Republican Leader John Boehner (R-OH)

Following the Democrats' stunning defeat in the Senate special election in Massachusetts yesterday, House Democrats are scrambling to figure out another way to force a costly government takeover of health care on the American people.  The top House Democratic leaders seem comfortable with attempting to pass the Senate health care takeover bill in the House. However, numerous House Democratic members are already on the record saying the Senate bill is a nonstarter.  Will they flip-flop now and bow to their leaders, who are intent on defying the will of the American people?  Here's a sampling of what some House Democratic rank-and-file members said about the Senate bill prior to last night's developments in Massachusetts:

Rep. Xavier Becerra (D-CA)

Rep. Joe Courtney (D-CT)

Rep. Diana DeGette (D-CO)
