    The GOP will have to stop stone walling and actually come up with a health care reform bill with the Democrats, if Brown wins. I would like to see that happen. The Dem acting unilaterally is not the way Bills should be written. Let's see if the GOP will actually come up with something.

    I just love when the lefties tell the Gop they have to act like this, do that, do this, blaa blaa blaa.:lol:

    The people of this country have been asking the Progressive party lead by the Obama to stop with outlandish health care takeover, but have they listened, N0000000000000000000

    What the GOP wants is
    1)Tort reform - no way the Dems will go for that
    2)HSA support - current legislation kills them
    3)nationwide competition on plans - again, the Dems say no
    4) and end to goofy mandates. The current legislation is full of them, including slacker insurance to age 30

    It will be hard to get a compromise when each side hates the plans of the other.

    The democrats will have to prove that they are for a good healthcare reform bill, and not government expansion. They will have to prove they are for the people of this great country by passing a bill that IS bipartisan.

    People didn't want this reform, it was just not that important.

    In short, its an old pet project of the DNC and will be again dead and buried, there will be no 'compromise' bill.

    The Dems will be forced to actually govern the country instead of trying to morph it into Europe.

    I agree, people don't want this bill, but I think you're optimistic to think it would render this bill dead and buried. I have little doubt these assholes are going to cram this through with whatever loophole they can find to get it done with whatever number of votes they have.

    I do hope you are right though!

    The GOP will act. They will shut down this worthless piece of legislation like the American people want.
