House of Cards, Meet Stiff Breeze

Scott Brown has spooked even Dick Durbin into backing down on speeding up health care:

Senate Democratic Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) said leaders would not make any attempt to pass a final healthcare reform bill through the Senate before state Sen. Scott Brown (R) is certified the winner of the special election.

Senate Democratic leaders met Wednesday morning to discuss the results of the special election in Massachusetts and have decided to wait before deciding how to proceed on healthcare reform.

Elections have consequences.
