Default Senate Passes "Historic" Health Care Bill...

The House, Senate, House and Senate, Obama...... Two hurdles down, two to go (Ok... one to go... we know what Obama will do) before we'll have a new health care system on the way. I think the Dems are just putting on a drama show to "feign" opposition to this bill.... they planned on passing it from the beginning.... Lawyers.....

It's as good as done.

Kiss the American way of life goodbye.

this pretty much sums up todays politicians...

Quote:
Start with a cage containing five monkeys. Inside the cage, hang a banana on a string and place a set of stairs under it. Before long, a monkey will go to the stairs and start to climb towards the banana. As soon as he touches the stairs, spray all the other monkeys with cold water.

After a while, another monkey makes an attempt with the same result - all the other monkeys are sprayed with cold water. Pretty soon, when another monkey tries to climb the stairs, the other monkeys will try to prevent it.

Now, put away the cold water. Remove one monkey from the cage and replace it with a new one. The new monkey sees the banana and wants to climb the stairs. To his surprise and horror, all the other monkeys attack him. After another attempt and attack, he knows that if he tries to climb the stairs, he will be assaulted.

Next, remove another of the original five monkeys and replace it with a new one. The newcomer goes to the stairs and is attacked. The previous newcomer takes part in the punishment with enthusiasm! Likewise, replace a third original monkey with a new one, then a fourth, then the fifth. Every time the newest monkey takes to the stairs, he is attacked. Most of the monkeys that are beating him have no idea why they were not permitted to climb the stairs or why they are participating in the beating of the newest monkey.

After replacing all the original monkeys, none of the remaining monkeys have ever been sprayed with cold water. Nevertheless, no monkey ever again approaches the stairs to try for the banana. Why not? Because as far as they know that's the way it's always been done around here.

No big deal here. This was just to move to debate. The real vote should come at the end of Nov or first part of Dec. I still think it will be voted down, but then again nothing would suprise me with this congress.

I kinda agree with you. I don't think it will pass as it stands right now, not with elections coming up so soon.

It may really be a done deal....

Well, we're boned. I know this is just a move to debate, but I have zero confidence that this won't pass.

I may as well start planning for my Mom's fight for her health care now, because if these bozos have their way, they're pretty much going to sentence her to death.
