    It isn't worth it.
    I've tried talking to these people in a respectful manner, tried to use facts.

    The reasoning centers of their brains are shut off to facts.

    Almost always do they revert to "Republicans suxor", "Historic blah" and other such lame talking points.
    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.

    Probably right.

    Well, the Constitution was pretty nice while it lasted.

    HG, you forgot the "constitution is ruined" rhetoric. The over the top crap is there on both sides.

    I agree with that, I think the doom and gloom is a bit over the top.

    If anything, "The Constitution" has been ignored for far longer than this.
    It should be no surprise to opponents.

    If you are implying that I think that this is the very first assault upon the Constitution, you would be mistaken.

    Well, that's a wrap. It was a good debate. I am proud of the House. I am proud of my representative.

    I'm reminded of nothing so much as Chris Rock's description of the OJ Trial:

    "[Democrats] too happy, [Republicans] too sad."

    This bill doesn't end healthcare as we know it, sound the death knell of our democracy, or destroy the Constitution. It also doesn't make health care a right, decrease the number of uninsured until 2014, or do much of anything to control overall health care costs.
