    The previous vote was a vote to have a vote on the rules.

    Now they have held the vote on the rules: 224 - 206 with one non-voting, the rules are passed and that tells us that they have the votes to pass the health care reform and reconciliation bills, too. One more vote on an unrelated issue and then the two hour debate begins.

    a long, drawn out process, but will be worth it in a couple of hours

    For those of us who admire the House, these debates are very satisfying.

    Majority Leader Steny Hoyer reminds us of the opposition slurs against all the great progressive initiatives of the past century, like Social Security and Medicare, and placed this health reform bill among those great achievements.

    I think you're absolutely right that this bill will eventually be looked at in the same light as SS/Medicare. Coincidentally, 2017 is the year when the real impact of those programs will begin to be felt as well.

    Those great achievement are going bankrupt Good in theory by a failure in practice. This healthcare bill is not equal to social security and medicare. I heard today that they were equating it with civil rights legislation... They will say anything to crush the opposition without using facts.
