Democrats on Capitol Hill must decide: Is health care worth the fight?
To boost their re-election hopes later this year, rank-and-file members of Congress will likely look to job creation after losing a seat Ted Kennedy manned for 47 years, according to experts.
“This is a big year. It’s a midterm election year when every U.S. representative is up for election and one-third of the Senate,” Saint Joseph’s University political science professor Randall Miller said. “The best way to show voters is by actually doing something. They have to look to jobs.”

Unless health care reform is chopped into smaller pieces, Miller said a stalemate could hinder incumbents’ chances later this year.
