    Reid: No health care vote in Senate until fall

    My Way News - Reid: No health care vote in Senate until fall

    Senate Democratic leaders on Thursday abandoned plans for a vote on health care before Congress' August recess, dealing a blow to President Barack Obama's ambitious timetable to revamp the nation's $2.4 trillion system of medical care.

    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., delivered the official pronouncement, saying, "It's better to have a product based on quality and thoughtfulness rather than try to jam something through."
    Dear Leader defeated. Now folks have a chance to read and digest the healthcare horror show he hoped to inflict on America.

    His little come-to-Jesus press conference last night didn't win the battle of hearts and minds--thank God!

    Oh god, guys, this is bad. For weeks I've been hearing how absolutely urgent and critical is is to get this passed before the break. Now that it won't, I can only imagine the horror that awaits us.

    Hopefully that is enough time for voters to get their elected officials to kill it for good .
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    Thank the stars! Now there is time to figure out the details and inform people of exactly what this bill will do. This buys time to get people more involved.

    At least we now have some time to effectively kill it.

    And that's the problem. The right has absolutely no intention of contributing to health care reform, they just want to saturate television with ads showing kindly old people who are homeless because of ObamaCare.

    If you honestly believe that you are nothing short of ignorant. Sorry, but that is the truth. They have no intention of contributing to a socialist healthcare system.

    You mean that's your problem. Fact of the matter is, defeating Dear Leader's health care horror show is a vital part of health care reform. The first and most crucial part of reforming anything is to stop going down the wrong roads.

    HR3200 is the Mother Of All Wrong Roads. There can be no reform until this monstrosity is torn apart and flushed down the sewer.

    Can we please get a new home-team?

    Our Benevolent Dictator is a good puppet, and I am glad the United States' monarchy is finally seeing a puppet who can pull strings that can be easily replaced come the next Dictator.. makes the change of power easier.

    However, Congress is slightly more tricky. Those baffling idiots are under the radar until they touch little boys, or solicit oral destruction.
