    Will the health care bill pass?

    If there comes down to a vote tonight, will the health care bill pass or will it fail?

    I'm not asking whether or not you support the bill.

    I thought it already did...Or was that something else?

    Pass, sadly.

    Strangely if it passes this may be the only thing that would assure I'd vote for almost any republican in 2012, even Sarah Palin, just so we can make good on the one and only chance that this country will likely have to repeal this abomination.

    According to C-SPAN, it is roughly going to take place around 9:30pm Eastern.

    I've been watching C-SPAN, the House of Reps and I've realized that it is one of my favorite channels:
    1) People boo when they exceed the time allotted to them
    2) People are reminded to "heed the gavel"
    3) This is everyone >
    4) THERE ARE NO COMMERCIALS

    That being said I'm sure it isn't nearly as interesting as Parliament.

    There's no question it will pass when they bypass the 60 vote supermajority needed. It was never really contested too much in the House.

    Sadly I think it will pass. America's last hope is if we can shoot this down through a legal battle. This is great news for Republican's in November and 2012 though.

    I think it will. And although you're "not asking", I do support it.

    What about those who lost their health care due to Insurance company greed? Who either cut it or denied them due to Pre Existing, are they to be considered Lazy Asses? Especially when they get sick?
