McCain: Congrats to Kennedy...But the Fight Goes On

When I asked John McCain what he would say to his old friend Ted Kennedy this morning, he smiled and said "Congratulations."

But he had nothing good to say about the legislation that passed the House late last night.

Calling it "a massive government takeover of the health care system," he promised the GOP would fight it on all fronts: challenging the reconciliation "fix" bill in the Senate, moving more broadly to repeal the bill later this year, questioning its Constitutionality in the courts and, of course, hoping to reap electoral gains come November.
