    The name changes are already underway. Local organizations are rebranding in order to get federal funds.

    Gone today--back tomorrow and when they come back the President won't have to worry about any backlash when he sends funds their way because no one will know that the money is for services rendered.

    FYI: He has congress in his pocket and he can do whatever he damn well pleases and he will prove it tomorrow when he completes shoving his Health Care "Reform" up our rear ends.

    he doesn't have congress or the senate in his pocket....just look how long it took to get this bill through, MOSTLY because of Dems that differ with him.

    he did not get universal health care...

    he did not get a public option as his second choice...

    he got nothing that he campaigned on.

    the vote did not have all democratic support yesterday.....not by a long shot....
