    OK. Here's your chance to predict the outcome of the Health Care Reform Bill. Simple yes or no poll. Is the Health Care Reform Bill going to go down in flames now? What say you?

    I say "Yes".

    Nancy will try and play the role of Dr Frankenstein, with Reid in the role of Igor, but there isn't enough lightening power to re animate this corpse.

    Even Frankenstein's monster, with half a brain, can see that

    Scott Brown's shocking victory actually gives cover to the moderate Democrats who never wanted to support that debacle. It's a win/win for everyone. I still can't believe Brown won.

    Sorry, Dog, but the answer is no.

    My sources say that the house dems are going to pass the senate version of the bill. If that happens, that version can go straight to the White House without the need of a senate vote.

    President Obama made it clear that he will sign whatever version hits his desk. Sooo...

    Sorry to burst your bubble.

    It would take an act of Congress to pass that thing now.

    This version of health care reform is in serious trouble.

    However Scott Brown is for reforming the health care system, he just thinks this current bill is horrible. He doesn't like the backroom deals, secret negotiations, vote bribes, and kickbacks for big pharm/insurance that are in the bill and wants to start over and debate it in the open.

    Kinda like Obama promised in the 2008 election campaign ;).

    The Democrats should start by pulling the insurance reform elements of the bill out and making them a separate standalone bill and either pass it, or make the Republicans vote against it.
