The likely scenario
In your poll at modernhealthcare.com/reader-poll on the future of healthcare reform, you failed to provide the most likely scenario as a choice. With the new Republican majority in the House, it will allow them to defund provisions of healthcare reform. Since the president has veto power to block any attempts to repeal healthcare reform, not funding it would be a likely tactic until a more conservative president might be elected in 2012 to allow a possible repeal of the bill.
