    Re: The Senate Will Pass The Healthcare Bill

    I'm gonna vote yes. I want to see if they're really going to fine me (Not that I'd pay it). If they don't pass it I'll never know outside of speculation and hearsay cause ya know, these things are written down or verified, it's all just legends and myths about what they HEARD was in the bill. Conservatives and Liberals are both guilty, because neither of the lazy ****s have read the bill. This is all politics and we the people are at risk of getting screwed. Hard. with a Congressional broom.

    They probably will. If only because democrats realize that this is quite possibly their last year for quite a while to have enough of a majority to get what they want done. Which is exactly all that they have done since they got the majority. Pass things that they've wanted done for years but was always blocked or had to compromise on so much that in the end they still didn't get exactly what they wanted.

    This is their chance and they will more than likely take it.

    They'll pass a healthcare reform bill that is more conservative than the house version, and then compromises between the bills will take place.

    I want to say no. I think what they'll the do they remove any compromises like no abortion funding or something else and will **** themselves on getting it passed or someone will deliberately put something in there that no one wants resulting in it not getting passed.There is also the hope that the so-called blue dog democrats will refuse to vote for the bill.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I'm leaning on no... they won't pass it with a 60 vote. They may pass it via reconcilliation but that I think is a defeat not a victory for the Democrats.

    I really don't think it was an accident that the house bill squeaked by. Pelosi wanted the bill as liberal as possible to have as much to bargain with as possible later.

    Re: The Senate Will Pass The Healthcare Bill

    "The bill" is a broad term, since we do not yet know what "the bill" will look like.

    Will they pass a bill with the public option in it? Probably not; they'd never get the 60 votes necessary.

    Will they pass a bill which doesn't do much except further regulate insurance companies? That's quite possible.

    Why would that be defeat. I would see that as a victory and a victory for the American people.
    Maybe a defeat for insurance companies. Is that what you are referring to?

    If they pass a bill without the public option it would be a joke.....and the Democrats will deserve to lose in the next elections....because there would be no difference between them and the party on no (minus one).
