    Looks like the Bill will pass

    Fiscally conservative Democrat switches to 'yes' on health care - On Politics: Covering the US Congress, Governors, and the 2010 Election - USATODAY.com

    Another member of the fiscally conservative Blue Dog Democrats is switching his vote from "no" to "yes" on health care.

    Rep. Allen Boyd of Florida told the Tallahassee Democrat that the revised House health care bill is "not perfect" but meets his criteria, especially when it comes to lowering the budget deficit. In November, the paper reported, Boyd had voted "no" on the original House version of health care because he did not think it would slow the rise of medical costs.

    So after one year of trying to obstruct the most significant legislation in 40 years, it looks like we can chaulk up a big FAIL for the Republicans


    Once again, the Republicans are on the wrong side of History

    Even if you do win you would win nothing because this bill has nothing in it that you guys really wanted and is just a regulation bill at most and the fact that 37 states are going to nullify this means that its DOA. Go ahead! Spend all your energy on this because it will only lead to a bigger victory for federalism afterward. Its a win-win for us and a lose-lose for you.
