    Yes because corporate interest doesnt pay off people to vote for the status quo, that never happens.

    They don't use tax payer money (billions of tax payer money) to buy votes for an unpopular bill...... if that's what you mean.

    This bill is only unpopular for conservatives. This is one of, if not the most moderate ways reform could have happened, there isn't even a public option.

    So, who's against it? obviously insurance. Insurance companies profit off of denying people and keeping as much of their money as they can, while still receiving business of course. So when corporate interest vis-a-vis insurance buys votes against ANY sort of reform, it's hillarious that you don't see the irony.

    You think it's clever to use wounded veterans as a political ploy?

    What would you be saying if the Democrats did something like that? I'm guessing you'd be disgusted by it.

    The Republicans will do anything to get back in power.

    Both you and the republicans disgust me.

    For christ's sake. Remember the Lieberman thing, where he was going to change his vote and then the Left attacked his wife for that breast cancer thing?

    Lieberman's wife is a HUGE lobbyist for insurance companies, and does not want any reform whatsoever. She is being bought off and so was lieberman

    Following were among the insurance companies whose shares were heavily traded in Friday's session and the expectation is for the continuation of this trend on Monday. Shares of insurers kept climbing Friday as a key healthcare vote in congress set for the weekend loomed in the background. The upward climb in insurance stocks seemed to indicate that the market had factored in the eventual passage of the bill which could add 10's of millions of new subscribers to the insurers client base.

    ...

    Aetna Inc. (AET) surged 3.67% to $34.46 on 14.33 million shares. The company expects first-quarter earnings to surpass Wall Street predictions, but it held to its previous projection for full-year profit.

    CIGNA Corporation (CI) gained 3.46% to $37.08 on 7.78 million shares. In the past one year, the stock has rallied over 115%.

    WellPoint, Inc. (WLP) went up 1.96% to $65.07 on 12.46 million shares. In the past one month, the stock has gained over 11%.

    Health Net, Inc. (HNT) soared 1.55% to $26.15 on heavy volume. In the past one month, the stock has gained over 14%.

    Correct. Like I said, this is insanely moderate reform. It's not a coincidence that conservative campaigns and votes are litered with corporate influence to keep the status quo.

    This is very moderate reform. Many Republicans that are now against it even supported an individual mandate.
