    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."

    Nonsense.

    Republicans suffer from Global Obstruction Pathology. GOP makes them oppose everything even if it they know it's the right thing to do.

    Didn't Democrats tell us we had to have a public option in order to keep costs down? In the end they will pass a bill that penalizes you for not having insurance. A captive nation to the insurance industry.

    They're making the blue dogs walk the plank for decrepit 60's radicals to have one more day in the sun, and possibly destroy this nation as they desired SINCE their youth.

    They're also proving Glenn Beck's warnings right that it isn't what's in the bill that matters, it's the structure. Just get crap in there and change it later after it's passed.

    Collapse the system and start over with socialism as it's foundation.

    1, 2, 3, 4 what're we fighting for?
    cause I don't give a damn...
    Next stop...???

    And there are supposedly unconstitutional bits in it changing senate rules from ever repealing it.

    They're setting the stage for violent revolution if this shit keeps up.
