I’m having a very difficult time understanding how Sen. Mike Enzi (R-WY) can be considered a potential partner in a bipartisan health care bill. According to Progressive Punch, he is the sixth most conservative member of the Senate. The only senators with worse records? Barrasso, Bunning, Cornyn, Inhofe, and DeMint. Because Sen. Enzi doesn’t do much television, I don’t think most people know who he is. But he is basically a slightly more jovial version of Dick Cheney. Because he is the ranking member and former chair of the HELP Committee, he has done some bipartisan work on health care with Teddy Kennedy. But the idea that Enzi, of all people, is going to break with the conservative movement and vote to end a filibuster on health care is ludicrous. So, can we stop pretending?
