    They don't Need REPUBLICans... Why the HELL are we still doing the Dog and Pony Shows?...

    Is it to Continue to Feed Barry's Gi-Hugic Ego?...

    Seriously... 59 Votes in the Senate are theirs... No Questions in the House either.

    Shut up and Pass your Reform, you Cowards.

    Shut up and Sign it into Law, Barry.

    Let the Seats Fall where they may.

    :)

    peace...

    The purpose of the Dog and Pony show was to publically show that the Republicans are unwilling to work on the bill and that there is no middle ground to be had.

    It paves the way for justifying reconcilliation

    So this past year was not about concern about 'poor people dying because of the big, bad insurance companies'.... it was all a lead up to the 'Obama Talk Show' yesterday? So he could show Americans how bad the Republicans are? Really? Gee, that is interesting. See, cuz he had 60 fucking votes for over a year and did not pass this 'vital' bill. So Obama cares more about showing up Republicans than 'taking care of the folks'.

    And you defend him? Charming.

    Why not just take it to a Vote?... Why the Coward's Path of Reconcilliation?...

    Reconciliation does not exist until the Senate bill passes the house, or vicey versey. If they just passed the Senate bill and left it as it stands, would that still be "The cowards path?" I really don't understand all the outrage over reconciliation.

    I watched the whole thing yesterday and I thought it was indeed a cluster f#&k. Again, more hot wind out of Washington. It's going to be fun watching this thing go down in flames. It's never going to pass - even if they play the reconcillation card. Any Democrat who has any desire at all to possibly get re-elected better run from Owe Bama's Health Care Reform bill now before it's too late. They can't pass it within their own party so why put the blame on the Republicans? Even if every Republican voted no (and they will) the Democrats could pass the bill on their own but they can't. I think it about the funniest thing I've seen in DC in quite a while. It's like kids on the play ground trying to get enough kids together to play dodge ball but can't because the ball they want to use is a brick.

    59 votes can't break the filibuster.
