And finally, it is time for the House GOP to come up with its own substitute for health care.
When I asked Cantor on Friday why a GOP health-care bill hadn't been passed, he said he wasn't sure that "a single, omnibus bill" was the answer.
Fair enough, but what about two or three bills, as the House is doing on immigration reform?
Now it may be that strategically the House Republicans want to focus on Obamacare and don't want to offer a plan for the Democrats to shoot at.
That has worked for a while, but it's not going to be enough as we get closer to the 2014 election.
Moreover, it is not in keeping with the House leadership's own pledge to "repeal and replace" Obamacare.
No, a GOP plan won't pass, but don't Republicans have an obligation to put one out there (just as they have done on the budget)? I think so.
