Default Health Care Bill Passes In The House

Only the Senate's vote is left now...... and then its on Obama's desk to sign.

I think we better start looking this up so we can begin to seriously study it as it looks like its gonna be part of our lives.

When did they vote on this thing ? At 3am this morning ?? I wake up at 6:30am and its already all over the headlines....

There have been so many "bills" proposed and "passed" until I have lost count.

You know something, one would think (no matter what side of the political spectrum you are) that all of these "smart" people, all of these people with their big fancy degrees from these big time schools could come together, discuss ways to make legislation that works for everyone. That's what they're there for, right?

I mean, you have doctors, lawyers, educators, all smart people in Congress (so it seems). So you would think coming together and passing laws that work would be no problem.

Could be wrong but if the Senate approves the bill doesn't a comittee from both chambers have to combine the two bills before Obama sees it. It is my understanding that the House and Senate bills have a number of differences.

The vote happened around 1130 pm last night. I watched it on Cspn. Pelosi was all excited afterwards and it made me sick. We are a country that is broke. We have 17 percent of Americans out of work and now they wanna raise taxes for cap and trade and healthcare. It dosent make a lick of sense to me. The Government is gonna own over 1/3 of industry in this country if this passes. They are gonna moniter vending machines and control our lives!!!!! They are gonna make meat harder to raise and sell and tougher to buy!! Wake up America please!!!!!

Oh YAY.

Whelp - the only way to voice your opposition and disgust is to hound the living hell out of your Senators and vote out the morons in the House who approved this bill.

Seriously, though, I doubt this bill passes in the Senate. Those fat cats like their cushy lifestyles, big bucks, perks, free medical care and future astronomical pensions too much to risk being given the heave ho by the voters.

If this POS bill passes, I'm going to hire an attorney. Because I know I'm going to have to fight every step of the way to make sure that my mother continues to receive the care that she does now and not have it rationed because they deem it "too costly". Her life literally depends on it.

Way to go, Democrats. This bill is going to be an albatross around the necks of every American, and you can be damn sure that none of you who voted for this garbage is going to get my vote.

Had to figure it was gonna pass the House; they don't have filibusters. The Senate is going to be a different story.

It's times like these when I wish the Constitution had been written to classify willful contravention as a capital crime. We could round up everybody who voted for this, take 'em out back, and shoot 'em.

I think care for the elderly is needed. I think Medicare is one of the best pieces of legislation to pass.

But there are some (conservatives and liberals) who do not like Medicare. So I don't see why they would have a problem with the government cutting into it. They don't even like it in the first place.

Then there are others who say "I don't want the government in my healthcare".......................while sitting at home receiving that same Medicare.

Well, the government already controls 1/3 of our economy because consumer spending only accounts for 2/3, or around 66%.

I would support such an amendment.
