White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said Democrats may use the 'budget reconciliation' process to avoid getting 60 Senate votes, if a compromise is not reached on the nationalization of health care.

President Barack Obama is hopeful that the Senate will pass a healthcare bill with 60 votes, but...held out the possibility that budget reconciliation rules could still be used.
If that is indeed the case and the Seante goes through with the nationalization of the country's health care system, there is likely to be a huge backlash in 2010.
Meanwhile, Nancy Pelosi dodges a question about the fairness of sending people to jail for refusing to by health insurance.
