Ace Reports: Deal Struck On Healthcare??

If this is true, we'd better get back on the phones asap.  Have the Democrats entered into a suicide pack?:

"Yes, it's Dick Morris, but given the arrogance the Dems have already shown on this, did you really think they'd do anything differently?
President Obama, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate leader Harry Reid have all agreed to the basic framework of the plan.  Their plan is clever but can be stopped if opponents of radical healthcare reform act quickly and focus on a core group of 23 Democratic Congressman. If just a few of these 23 Democrats are "flipped" and decide to oppose the bill, the whole Obama-Pelosi-Reid stratagem falls apart.Here's what I learned top Democrats are planning to implement.  Senate Democrats will go to the House with a two-part deal.  First, the House will pass the Senate's Obamacare bill that passed the Senate in December. The House leadership will vote on the Senate bill, and Pelosi will allow no amendments or modifications to the Senate bill.  How will Pelosi's deal fly with rambunctious liberal members of her majority that don't like the Senate bill, especially its failure to include a public option, put heavy fines on those who don't get insurance and offering no income tax surcharge on the "rich"?  That's where the second part of the Pelosi-deal comes in.  Behind closed doors Reid and Pelosi have agreed in principle that changes to the Senate bill will be made to satisfy liberal House members -- but only after the Senate bill is passed and signed into law by Obama."
