    Nelson says he'll support healthcare bill

    WASHINGTON, Dec. 19 (UPI) -- U.S. Sen. Ben Nelson, D-Neb., the lone Democratic senator holding out against a healthcare reform compromise, said Saturday he now backs the measure.

    Asked by The Washington Post if he was prepared to support a final version of the bill unveiled by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada, Nelson said, "Yeah."

    "We're there," Sen. Kent Conrad. D-N.D., told the newspaper Saturday as he headed into a special meeting to announce the deal, which, with Nelson now on board, would clear the way for its final passage by Christmas, the newspaper said.

    If Obama's leftist healthcare reform was something that the American people really wanted all these years, there wouldn't have ever been any considerable "struggle" to pass it.

    The "struggle" has always been to cloak the desires of the power-mad central-planners as being something for the good of the people.

    The Democrats have embraced “big tent” politics, so major initiatives are often quite challenging when not a single vote can be spared. At the end of the day (year?) progress has been achieved and we should be grateful for that.

    Wrong Bucko. Lots of special interest groups that have profits to lose from reform has a lot to do with the opposition. They have the funding and backing (congress critters getting money) for lots of misinformation which gets desseminated to the public, which some sadly are very easy to confuse due to laziness, partisanship, and just plain uninformed.

    So true Chappy. And great changes in this country have never been popular to all like freeing slaves, civil rights, desegregation, the list goes on and on. Usually the right thing is not easy either.

    It's hard to provide since no one has seen the actual bill except Harry Reid and Co.
    However from what I can see they don't have a public option, don't have a Medicare option and they are removing all the cost controls from the insurance companies. Things like they must cover preexisting conditions, no lifetime limits, and no (additional) cost to the insured preventative medicine. I don't see any other options for the Insurance companies except to raise rates to cover the additional expenses.

    How dare you slander the American people, who came out in droves in opposition to this agenda, in such a way?

    Is everybody who doesn't ape the Statist agenda a lackey for the insurance lobby now?

    They have the funding and backing (congress critters getting money) for lots of misinformation which gets desseminated to the public, which some sadly are very easy to confuse due to laziness, partisanship, and just plain uninformed.
    Like what?

    My Senator - Bob Casey stated that he would vote for this reform-bill regardless of what was in it.

    Wouldn't this bill have seen the light of day by now if the objective wasn't to confuse or mislead the public?



    What a panty load.
    It's right on the money, you bought it & are a clear & present threat to liberty
