    100% of Americans have decided they don't want Obamacare?

    Funny, I thought the polls indicated that 45% of Americans support it.

    But I guess when you belong to a majority, you can pretend that everyone agrees with you. After all, a Constitutional Republic is built on the idea that a tyranny of the majority shall rule over the minority, right? Enjoy your argumentum ad populum. People who rely on fallacious thinking probably should stay away from debates.

    All of a sudden you care about the Constitution. How convenient.

    No I will not watch it.I will watch the news afterwords to see the results.
    "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"

    The only thing worse than tyranny of the majority is tyranny of the minority.

    On topic: it's been debated for a year already now, what reason would anyone have to watch it?

    The rules vote is expected around 3 pm et according to C-SPAN.

    After that there'll be two hours of debate on the reconciliation and Senate health care reform bills.

    So, I guess there'll be two votes beginning sometime after 5 pm et today.

    The rules debate is about to begin. It is expected to run about an hour.

    I'd watch it, but I have to slam my genitals in an oven door repeatedly today.
