    Re: Health Care Bill has passed

    Before the reconciliation bill can be voted on, there is a now a vote on sending the passed bill back to committee, and letting it die there, which is a last gasp attempt by the Republican leadership to kill it. This is a 15 minute vote. After this vote is done, providing the nays have it, then the reconciliation bill will be voted on.

    Well, this vote does settle one thing - Whether or not the Great Recession will end up being a double dipper. Looks that way now.

    It's unbecoming.
    Isn't there a rule against that?

    Re: Health Care Bill has passed

    I'm waiting for proponents to defend the contents of this bill.

    Someone please tell me how this will make medical services cheaper, more accessible and not add to the federal deficit.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    The mods have already dealt with that by posting a warning. Please, let's get back to topic, where the conversation should be.

    It is truly inspiring to finally see our Representatives stand up for the people that put them in office!

    With all due respect, and to each his own, I have to disagree with your comments. There is no solid proof that a majority of American's were against this bill. Just because you yell the loudest, doesn't mean you yell for the majority. There is no proof it will put a nail in the coffin of the USA. Again no proof it will devastate our economy and place persons out of work. And, it is not un-Constitutional.
