Ryan Grim On Democrats Health Care Plans, Political 'Kamikaze'

Posted: Updated:

Huffington Post Senior Congressional Correspondent Ryan Grim appeared on MSNBC Monday to talk about health care reform legislation and its prospects in the Senate and the House.

Grim told MSNB's Tamron Hall that he believes Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has the will and political capital to convince conservative Democrats that --for the sake of the party-- they need pass a bill.

Grim said that the Democratic Party seems to have come to the conclusion that a health care bill is a necessity for upcoming midterm elections and that inaction would be political "kamikaze."
