Blame it all on retiring Senator Olympia Snowe of Maine. She cast the critical vote to allow Harry Reid and his followers to break the Republican filibuster. This vote allowed the bill to proceed to its confused and confusing huge 2000+ page finalization, which few, if any, Senators read. Even then, Obama had to buy off several Senators to gain passage by granting them preferences in Medicaid funding.
