Perhaps health care reform is not quite dead but additional delays are likely to be fatal. I believe Yglesias is correct that the sudden collapse of support is a sign that many Democrats were not very enthusiastic about reform. Hence the lack of urgency and delays chronicled in this TPM timeline . Support for reform in general has always been greater than support for any specific reform proposal making it easy to underestimate how difficult it will be to pass a specific proposal.
