    That's why they voted the Dems out and the Reps in? Because the Reps were going to go farther with the healthcare bill?

    The president is saying he will veto it, we will see. He might end up sticking his finger in the air and testing the wind before he actually does that though. As I understand matters there are now 26 states fighting this bill (half the country) and numerous constitituional challenges to it. Add to that the fact that tomorrow the republicans will start going about other methods of defunding and defeating the bill. I think the chances that this bill will actually survive and be enacted as intended are pretty slim. With or without Obama's threatened veto. The president may yet decide that it is not in his best interest to veto the bill owing to public sentiment.

    change that to some, and you'd be more accurate.

    The bill isn't perfect but if it repeals all the way I feel bad for children with preexisting conditions and people who get cancer and can't get health insurance.

    They should repeal it and replace it with reforms from both sides. The Republicans should implement their cost cutting measures and allow insurance companies to sell accross state lines. The Democrats should write in a public option for anyone that choses it. Both sides win along with every economic class of Americans, especially the poor who cannot afford health insurance.

    I think he just might consider his desire to serve a second term, or at least serve his one term and leave out looking like an asshole and not a total asshole.
