Thanks, I have insurance, I pay $6000 a year and then the first $3500
so I pay $9500 a year before I get any benefit.

Ok, here we go

First of three votes.

1. HR 3590 is the Senate Bill. If that passes

2. motion to recommit - the GOP gets to try and kill 'reconciliation'
if they can't then

3. the vote to pass 'the reconciliation bill'.

In a sane non-partisan world

some GOP would want to vote for the 'reconciliation bill' after the Senate Bill passes.

HR 3590 passes - hit the 216


and closes with 219.

Some Dems, lacked courage.

Stupak votes 95% with Dems, it would have been really odd having him vote against Health Care.

If this is true, it could push it close to 220 votes?
Wow, a landside for President Obama.

The pricetag on Hope&change just went up another trillion dollars.

The only thing bipartisan in the vote was the opposition. Landmark indeed.

How absolutely phony these GOP look going on about the lives of 'unborn' children, and in the same breath saying we can't afford health care for the borned.

It's hard to be bipartisan when the opposition doesn't want to work with you at all, when all they want to do is sit cross-armed and say 'no' over and over again.

Besides, no opposition that wants to let greed-motivated insurance companies continue to tell people to go fuck themselves because they have pre-existing conditions is an opposition that should be listened to. For God's sake, last year (or was it a two years ago?), an insurance company tried to deny a little baby coverage because the baby was fat. Of course they eventually caved because the media hit them pretty hard. Because of this bill, that's now(or will soon be) illegal. And you're upset.

I'd hate to think how upset you'd be if the single-payer system that millions of us are in favor of, or even just the public option that millions upon millions of us want, went through.

Tomorrow we will see how many states rev up legislation to exempt themselves from federal mandates.

Tomorrow we find out how many state attorney generals will explore filing lawsuits over sweetheart deals.

Tomorrow we see how Wall St. reacts.

Tomorrow we will see if Rush Limbaugh will spontaneously combust on the air.
