    the gop is only good for useless opposition and laughs. their cries for fiscal responsibility after they watched their boy spent trillions is laughable.

    Good thing.

    The longer that stink bomb is delayed, the lower the odds are that it'll ever get passed.

    I'm sorry?? What do you have against healthcare again?? I mean?? Do you have healthcare?? Is it any good?? Do you have a huge deductable?? Do you really love paying the CEO's of some healthcare companies $102,000 an hour?? Would you like some ky jelly or do you just want it dry? If you take it dry.. You might need some health care.. Rebuttlicans can be pretty stupid and abusive when it comes to the american public..

    Too little, too late for the Republicans. Their massive screw-ups caused all this crap in the first place. I seriously doubt I will ever vote for a Republican again just as a matter of principle. This almost sounds as ridiculous as putting terrorists on trial in New York and then saying that they'll be found guilty.

    This thing will pass. Republicans will go down in history as the ones that oppesed it just like they did wth Medicare, social security, civil rights etc etc.

    Republicans will go down in history as the pos they are AGAIN.

    I wonder how much laughing will go on when they realize they might not be taking an entire month off for the Christmas break?

    [At least under Democratic leadership, Congress is actually at their desks when in session five days a week. They now start on Mondays, not Tuesdays, and end on Friday evenings, not Thursdays at noon.]

    That's the plan. You'd better hope it doesn't backfire, though. Most polls show that Americans want SOME form of health care reform, and if the Republicans unanimously continue to ignore that, they too need to reminded that mid-term elections aren't that far off.

    The American Public and the Next Phase of the Health Care Reform Debate | Health Care Reform 2009
    The overwhelming majority of Americans want health care reform: 84% believe that the health care system needs to be fundamentally changed or completely rebuilt (CBS, October). In addition, a majority (53%) believes that the country would be better off if the legislation being discussed were enacted (KFF, October). The public also favors several of the policy elements being discussed for inclusion in the final bill, including requiring insurers to cover people with preexisting conditions (80 to 89% support) (KFF, September; CBS, September; Pew; NBC, September) and requiring employers to offer and contribute to their employeesÂ’ health insurance plans (59 to 67%) (Pew; KFF, September).
