    House healthcare talks break down in anger

    House healthcare talks break down in anger
    House healthcare negotiations dissolved in acrimony on Friday, with Blue Dog Democrats saying they were “lied” to by their Democratic
    Now this is an interesting turn of events.....Henry Taxman got found out selling his own party down the river just to pass a bill, it seems.

    Amazing.
    If Henry Taxman pushes HR3200 to a floor vote and the Blue Dogs rebel, the bill could get soundly defeated--and then Dear Leader's health care agenda is gone.

    That would be the end of Dear Leader's super-cool above-it-all, know-it-all image. Being as he is one who favors style over substance, that would spell the end of his Presidency.

    Can't happen soon enough.

    Seriously, I hope that happens soon.
    This no questions asked following that he has built has got to end.
    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.

    Yup, Bluedogs, I mean Republicans in Dems Clothing, are worried about losing their bribes from the health care industry.

    It's amazing that, no matter where I turn, the anti-heath care reformers are getting paid off. Must be nice to get paid tons of money at the cost of the American people. Stupid asses.
    It's time for a revolution in our country. Not a revolution forged with guns and bombs but a revolution forged of compassion and altruism. A revolution that extends a hand to those who don't have and who cannot. A revolution that makes Health Care available to all those in the US.

    I hope it passes. It's going to be an even more colossal failure than the stimulus debacle. Half the country will dump their insurance, thinking they're going to get free insurance, rightaway; neither of which are true.

    I do not wish my country ill simply to watch my opponents' programs fail. It would be like wanting people to be killed to prove we "need" gun control. Therefore, I do not want this to pass.

    The republicans, the primary opposition, are at a super-minority status atm...and of course they would oppose anything and everything. However, at least has a filibuster-proof majority, and yet, the side isn't getting their agenda passed. Not even the cap and trade may be introduced in the senate. The only people that democrats have to blame for this failure are themselves.

    don't vote democrat next time!
