This is what I'm talking about. If you give concessions in order to get votes, then don't get the votes, then withdraw the concessions. If the Republicans want to be instransigent they should pay something for it.

I think Dems are playing coy on this point for now primarily in order to spook the Republicans into thinking she just might do it. Remember, the House and Senate will eventually have to meet in conference to hammer out differences in the bill. The Dems will have considerable power to simply drop some of those measures that were added as enticements to moderate Republicans. The vote that matters is on the final conference report. What happened yesterday was just a first-round playoff game.
