If this bill were soooooooooooooooooooo good for the healthcare of Americans it would have had bi-partisan support and it would have been voted on during day- light hours. They are hoping Americans are too busy with Christmas shopping and of course most Americans are sleeping at 1:00 am, so they vote on this in the dark of night to get it past the American people. Don't be fooled by this, it's tryranny on full display for ALL to see. washingtonpost.com Not a single Republican voted to advance the measure, including Sen. Olympia J. Snowe, the one GOP lawmaker who had backed an earlier version. The Maine moderate was lobbied heavily by President Obama, but announced Sunday night in a statement that she remained "concerned" about the measure, while objecting to "the artificial and arbitrary deadline of completing the bill before Christmas." Though admittedly outflanked, Republicans declined to relent. In the hours before the cloture vote, GOP lawmakers took turns condemning the bill in impassioned speeches on the Senate floor. Sen. Lamar Alexander (Tenn.) called it a "historic mistake." Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) accused Democrats of producing "a mess" that represented "a blind call to make history." Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), who ran against Obama for president last year, vowed to "fight until the last vote," a threat that could keep senators at their desks until well into the night on Dec. 24. "They had 60 percent of the Senate, [but] 60 percent of the American people are against this," McCain said Monday morning on "Good Morning America," referring to polls showing that much of the public is skeptical of health-care reform. "They want it stopped."
