    Motion to send the bill back to committee and kill it has been defeated. The reconciliation bill vote will be in a few minutes.

    I'll be expecting crickets on that one, since there are no ways the bill can accomplish that. BTW, I hope none of the supporters have money in the stock market, I don't want to hear all of their whining and complaining when it recedes.

    I know it, I just want to eviscerate the liberal version of "dittoheads."

    Most supporters don't even know whats in the bill.
    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.

    It is so cute to see so many supporters of the Teabag Party say they are going to revolt. I picture them getting their tights and muskets on their 300 pound bodies now. Please don't die from your obesity? The bill isn't fully in effect yet, wait until it is passed. THEN! You can all walk to your local courthouse and see how many people give a **** about what you have to say. Better yet, have a rally.

    We already had a war between the states. The revolters lost.

    Re: Health Care Bill has passed

    Here is a little tid bit for those that think they are now going to be covered.....
    http://www.kff.org/healthreform/uplo...bill_final.pdf
    Page 2, middle column.....
    Require U.S. citizens and legal residents to
    have qualifying health coverage. Those without
    coverage pay a tax penalty of the greater
    of $750 per year up to a maximum of three
    times that amount ($2,250) per family or 2%
    of household income.
    The penalty will be
    phased-in according to the following schedule:
    $95 in 2014, $495 in 2015, and $750 in 2016
    for the flat fee or .5% of taxable income in
    2014, 1.0% of taxable income in 2015, and 2%
    of taxable income in 2016. Beginning after
    2016, the penalty will be increased annually
    by the cost-of-living adjustment.


    Exemptions will be granted for financial hardship,
    religious objections, American Indians, those
    without coverage for less than three months,
    undocumented immigrants, incarcerated
    individuals, if the lowest cost plan option
    exceeds 8% of an individual’s income, and if
    the individual has income below 100% of the
    poverty level.

    That sounds like about two to three personal attacks right there. Hope you don't have money in the stock market, or mutual funds, or anything indexed.

Again no proof it will devastate our economy and place persons out of work. And, it is not un-Constitutional.
    Every poll taken over the past 2 months has the majority being opposed to this bill. Doesn't matter which side you are on in this issue, this is not what the majority of Americans want. These members of Congress are committing political suicide. And it is un-Constitutional, but we'll let the courts work that out.
    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.

    Please, I don't want this thread ending up in the Basement, due to personal infighting. Help me out here, OK?
