Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

Nice dodge. Is there any reason the process shouldn't be televised?
It's not like sticking cameras in someone's hotel room. Nor is it a matter of sensitive intelligence information. This is the whole country's business.
2001-2008: Dissent is the highest form of patriotism.
2009-2016: Dissent is the highest form of racism.
2017-? (Probably): Dissent is the highest form of misogyny.
gosh, it was less than a month ago that harry, after almost a year of eager anticipation, announced to the world that he'd finally settled on a bill, he had his 60, and HE WASN'T GONNA LET ANYONE SEE IT
so now they're gonna bypass conference, smoosh the two bills together once more IN SECRET
and then they're gonna try to CRAM it down the unanimous gullets of their increasingly malcontent membership
either way, it's unbelievably arrogant
will harry, nancy and rahm allow us to SEE this bill before state of the union?
he wouldn't even let his SENATORS look at it last time
it can't stand the light of day
the bill is hugely and increasingly unpopular
dorgan announced his retirement today
he was trailing some unknown republican wannabe by TWENTY TWO last we saw
ben nelson is down THIRTY ONE in nebraska
that is, we'll see if membership goes along
leadership is showing stunning disrespect, it's asking reps to OFF themselves for the "good" of the party and its president
they can't afford to lose any upstairs
and downstairs, they only squeezed thru by one dem
not a smart move by leadership
but the only one available
we'll see how members react
then, the american people

The health care bill will face several challenges on the grounds of being unconstitutional. It is my hope that this is merely the beginning of challenging Presidential orders and other unconstitutional laws Congress has passed over the years. "Flood the system" - now where have I heard that before?
Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.
