    There is a war being waged in congress over the healthcare bill. We'll see who wins this one...

    The short answer is No, with the passage in the house this bill still needs a Senate passage then must go to conference, then must survive what are likely to be more constitutional challenges that any legislation in history. If it survives past all that including states which are likely to pass laws that allow for healthcare choice then it will be in place. While I am sure the president will make great hay out of signing a healthcare bill it still has many hurdles to overcome before it becomes viable. So tonight is just step one in a very very long process.

    I heard a good amount of people interviewed after Obama was elected and they were very happy that their mortgage was going to be paid for now and their bills were going to be paid. They seemed to think they were going to get free stuff and why not. We will just take the money from people that Obama and Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid and the lot think have too much,that would be the fair and right thing to do right America. It just makes sense instead of fixing a problem we just throw money at it. If we don't have the money we just borrow it,or print it,or take it away from people who the government thinks just has too darn much of it.
