    Healthcare Reform passed in the House by three votes. Not bi-partisan by any stretch. Now it heads to the Senate where it may end up like Cap & Trade and go nowhere, or it could get re-written and passed in some form.

    This is a poll to see if we believe it will BECOME LAW in any form....

    But it WAS bipartisan. At least that's what Nancy said.

    This bill is going to be DOA. (Dead on Arrival). If any politician has any future political aspirations, they best take a good close look at all of this crap, and vote no. Voting yes is going to be a career killer. Another thing is I don't believe anything they pass will be Constitutional and will end up going to the Supreme Court long before it ever hits the streets. Hopefully, the Supreme Court Judges will have enough brains to stop this thing dead in it's tracks if it does make it into law. Never in the history of this country has the government mandated a person to buy anything. How can they mandate a person to buy health care insurance if they don't want to buy it? I don't believe that they can.

    No.

    I don't think any form of socialized medical services can survive a cloture vote in the Senate.

    I don't know, but I do find it somewhat amusing that the bill, as it now stands, would make criminals of the Amish.

    I hope you guys are right. I'm a little more skeptical. I think perhaps a watered down version with tons of incoherent "triggers' might slide through.

    One republican vote makes it bipartisan.

    However, with 39 democrat votes against it explains what bipatisanship really is.

    What if the Dems pull the "nuclear option" of a simple majority to pass UHC??

    Not possible. If they could have, they would have done it already. Empty threat.

    Not at all, Rab. The Senate Dems will pull it if they have to. They have been waiting for the House bill all along. Now the Dem war chants are going to demonize you folks and your beliefs to the American public. You think you were presented hatefully in 2008?
