Here's something to remember…
Democrats go from having the largest Senate majority since the 1970s to… the second largest Senate majority since the 1970s. They go from 60 votes for health-care reform to 59. Republicans haven't had a majority this large in generations.
It's kind of sad, when you think about it, that the Democrats only managed to control 60 percent of the Senate and never managed to reach that crucial 117 percent they'd have needed to push any of their agenda through.
