    Obama says it's now Senate's turn on health care

    The Associated Press: Obama says it's now Senate's turn on health care
    (AP) – 22 minutes ago

    WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama says it's now up to the Senate to take the baton from the House and pass a bill aimed at overhauling the nation's health care system.

    The House narrowly passed a health care bill Saturday night. The Senate has yet to schedule a debate on its version of health care legislation, and Republicans are pledging to stop the Democratic measure from passing Congress.

    Obama gave a brief statement on the health care initiative in the Rose Garden on Sunday after returning from the presidential retreat at Camp David.

    The president says he's confident the Senate will pass a health care bill. He assured senators they will join House members in looking back on the passage of health care reform as their finest moment in public service.

    Senate now in healthcare spotlight
    Reuters
    By John Whitesides

    http://www.reuters.com/article/newsO...091108?sp=true

    WASHINGTON, Nov 7 (Reuters) - After a narrow win in the U.S. House of Representatives, President Barack Obama's fight for a sweeping healthcare overhaul moves to the U.S. Senate where it faces a difficult path to approval.

    The Senate's version of healthcare reform has been stalled as Democratic leader Harry Reid awaits cost estimates from congressional budget analysts and searches for an approach that can win the 60 votes needed to overcome Republican procedural hurdles.
    Hopefully the Senate will live up to the expectations we have that these are more thoughtful in their deliberations than the House. It's been seen that the majority in the House are more interested in appeasing Obama snd pelosi than sticking up for the People and the Constitution.

    Well, expectations are theoretically supposed to reflect constituencies in the House but they did not. In fact, back room deals were made to get 54% of the House "blue dogs" to vote with the most liberal members in Congress this country's ever seen. The basic hope was the conservative Democrats would vote who got them there - but that didn't happen.

    Why would it be different in the Senate?

    What a bunch of WATB the conservatives are. I've been reading the multitude posts about the passing of the health care bill in the house last night. Such victimhood has never been more pathetically on display !!!!!


    I am cheering, like the House did last night, when the bill passed. Decades of trying has never gotten this far. Here's to America !!!!

    What evidence do you have that they DIDN'T vote their constituencies wishes on this matter? Michaud certainly did, and so did Sanchez, and so did many many many more of the blue dogs who voted aye.

    aw, c'mon, jackalope

    until you can answer, well, ALL of the following grotesque objections, you're not being entirely serious

    1. half a T cuts to m and m

    2. mandates on individuals to buy that which they can't afford, fines if they don't, jail at the end

    3. unfunded mandates on already bankrupt states, talk to difi and harry

    4. dem governors ritter, gregoire, schweitzer and bill richardson have joined TN's phil bredesen as violent, vehement, vocal objectors to this forcing the states to underwrite hundreds of B's of obama's fantasies

    5. ten years of taxes vs 6 or 7 years of bennies

    6. the doc fixes

    7. 1.4T, including the "fix"

    8. how it's paid for---massive taxes, penalties, fines, mandates

    9. the dire differences between house and senate creations

    10. taxes on small biz and big biz, jobs killer

    11. the fact that the cuts to m and m, huge part of how obama "pays for" crap, will never occur, destroying the deficit

    12. taxes on the rich---dead letter in the senate

    13. taxes on benefits---anathema to unions

    14. taxes on insurers, manufacturers, pharmaceuticals

    15. the incentive for employers to dump coverage

    16. the crafting of all this in secret, dumped on membership and the public always at the last second

    Quit speaking another language, it's against the board's TOS.

    And, you're an assuming so and so, aren't you? The bulk of my schooling was in PRIVATE schools.

    And the conservatives are still WATBs. H O L Y C R A P.

    Their 'shenanigans' on the floor of the House yesterday were a sight. The signage at their 'tea parties' is disgusting. And the posts I've seen around the net about this health care bill. OH MY GAWDS. wah wah wah wah
