Margolies urges House Dems to vote “yes” on health care

Marjorie Margolies, a former Pennsylvania Congresswoman who was voted out of office after supporting President Bill Clinton’s controversial 1993 budget, is urging nervous Democrats to support President Obama’s health care bill.

In a Washington Post editorial, she tells House Dems she doesn’t regret the yes vote, saying “with the perspective of having spent nearly two decades living with your worst political nightmare that I urge you to vote for health-care reform this week.”

One interesting excerpt: “Simply put, you could be Margolies-Mezvinskied whether you vote with or against President Obama. You will be assailed no matter how you vote this week. And this job isn’t supposed to be easy. So cast the vote that you won’t regret in 18 years.”
