    "WASHINGTON -- House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Thursday she does not have the votes to pass the Senate's version of a health insurance bill that is now in severe jeopardy of being scrapped.

    Just days ago, that was the most viable option for keeping alive President Obama's top domestic priority, but with the election of Republican Scott Brown to the U.S. Senate in Massachusetts, the fragile coalition of Democrats has broken apart as lawmakers bicker over which portions of the $900 billion, 10-year Senate bill they will and won't accept."

    Somebody call the funeral home because Obamacare is DEAD. :D

    What happened? Did Obama and the Democrats run out of votes to buy with shady backroom deals?

    I think any Democrat that wants even a remote chance of getting re-elected best steer a wide path around the Health Care Reform Bill... Just saying.

    What! Pelosi doesn't have the votes in the Dimocrat controlled House? She can't get fellow Dims to support it and vote yes?

    Uh oh...I sure hope no one starts referring to them as the Party of No.

    Nope. They just didn't have enough money to buy the whole House and Senate.

    Someone on here - the username escapes me momentarily - said recently that this healthcare was a done deal, it's gonna pass and the rest of us could just STFU about it. Oops.
