Pass with 51, Repeal with 51

If Democrats are able to cram down health care reform with 51 Senate votes, then that will be precisely the number of votes required to repeal it. Sooner or later there will be 51 Republican Senate votes and when that day comes -- it might be this November -- then the same vote criteria used to pass the bill will be used to repeal it. The rule of 51 can be used to repeal anything passed by the rule of 51.
