    House majority votes in favor Health Care Bill

    Health care vote: A majority of House members have voted to pass the health care bill Naples Daily News

    "A majority of House members have voted to pass the health care bill. The vote is continuing.

    Democratic leaders were hopeful they could pass the bill late Saturday, giving Obama his biggest victory since last November's historic election. Obama made a rare visit to Congress earlier in the day to meet with House Democrats in an effort to cement a majority to pass the legislation that is his top domestic priority."

    House approves landmark healthcare reform bill

    D.C. Now | Healthcare | Los Angeles Times

    November 7, 2009 | 8:15 pm
    After a day of testy, sometimes repetitive debate, the House tonight passed a landmark healthcare bill that would create a new role for the federal government in supplying insurance for almost all Americans.


    Cheers broke out when the vote went over the magic number of 218 needed to pass the legislation. The final vote was 220-215.

    In passing the bill, the Democratic-controlled House handed President Obama a major victory on the issue that has become the centerpiece of his domestic agenda. The Senate is considering its version of healthcare reform, and the two plans will have to be reconciled before a final bill goes to the presidentís desk.
    There is still hope in getting the Senate to honor their oaths and stop this.

    Now the Democrats need to try and remove those Dems who voted no by withdrawing funds for them from party coffers and running more progressive people against them.

    Honoring their oaths to refuse health care for those who can't get it? Some oath. Only Repubs believe in that....and a few traitorous dems.

    This is a BLACK DAY for a America and puts us one step closer to being the Neo-Socialist Nation Obama dreams of. It will mean the end of freedoms starting with speech and foums like this one where an open and free exchange can take place. If you just pay attention to Obama's henchmen you can hear them spout their radical message of hate toward everything this Nation has always stood for until Obama came along.

    Re: House approves landmark healthcare reform bill

    passage!

    with 219 dems and joseph cao

    on behalf of EXCITED republicans everywhere---CONGRATS!!!

    LOLOLOL!

    worst of both worlds

    responsible ON RECORD for half a T cuts to M&M, mandates on individuals to buy for themselves unbelievably expensive medical insurance, fines on those who don't, threats to send em to jail, mandates on bankrupt states to pick up huge increases in medicaid costs simply at the stroke of a pen, ten years of tax revenues against only 6 years of benefits, and much much more...

    with NO chance of passage upstairs

    LOLOL!

    unbelievably dumb

    republicans just picked up 25 house seats in southern and other bluedog districts

    the backlash against the party nationally is gonna make anything you've seen so far mere teapot tempest

    and it has no chance of moving past lieberman and his half dozen stalwarts

    if you can only get 220 in the house, you are completely hopeless on the expensive blue carpet---politics 101

    witness cap and trade, which had a similarly pathetic margin

    just wait til the sunday talks get hold of this

    stephanopoulos---well, nancy cleared quite a hurdle yesterday, but that's a rather slim margin, isn't it

    george will---it cuts M&M, it fines individuals, its accounting is bogus

    the house still has to pass a quarter T doc fix, off budget

    etc, etc, etc

    a HUGE win today for the opponents of obama

    pelosi is stupid beyond compare

    but, for tonite---CONGRATS!!!

    sincerely

    sleep well

    Goodness, 220-215. A squeaker of that level is rare. That means that only an once less of support in the Senate will kill the bill. At least I can hope.
