Democrats getting endangered Dem Congressmen to vote for health care bill with promises of future jobs

From the WSJ Political Diary:

The President and the Speaker pushed the bill hard and wanted momentum as the Senate begins its debate. They asked safe seats to all vote aye. They also wanted seats that are likely losers in the November 2010 election to vote aye, with the assurance that outgoing members will be actively assisted in their subsequent careers. . . .

It is interesting the deal that Pelosi made with Democrats who are most vulnerable.
