    Republicans press for Senate vote on health care

    With its mandate that almost all people in the U.S. carry insurance, the health care law divides people about evenly. Some provisions - coverage for those with pre-existing conditions and allowing older children to remain on parents' insurance - are popular.

    Only about one in four people say they want to do away with the health care law completely, according to a recent Associated Press-GfK poll.

    For those reasons, Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., suggested that Republicans should be careful what they wish for

    The TeaBerserkers fail to distinguish Insurance Exchanges of multiple options from a single product that is mandatory to buy.

    Anyone could likely be fined for selling or distributing contaminated food, but no one is required to buy it, or any other specific one of the federally inspected alternatives. In the alternative of the inspected foods, there is a federal standard met which is variously priced.

    That is not unconstitutional, and nobody wants it repealed.

    Is the Senate refusing a vote on the repeal?

    Surely Harry Reid isn't turning the Dem's into..............The Party of No...right?

    Reid initially said he wouldn't even allow it on the floor of the Senate, then waffled on that. Not sure where he stands now.

    But what's odd to me is that there seem to be murmurs from within the GOP that they think they may be able to get it through. I don't see how, never thought it was a real possibility (still don't), but in the last 3-4 days, the attitude from both sides has seemed to change.

    Something is up, but I have no clue what it is. I still don't see the GOP getting enough votes in the Senate to actually repeal the thing.

    But the chatter has changed. They (both sides) know something we don't.

    With 23 Democrat Senate seats up in 2012? Note too that NO democrat wanted to touch Healthcare during the elections of 2010. They knew it was poison knowing that the people were angry as hell it got passed despite the insistance of the people not to vote for it.

    Reid is treading on very thin ice and he knows it.

    Twenty nine states are now suing the feds over this hastily put together, back room dealing, butt kissing special favor granting budget busting peice of legislation, but if you want to keep lying and saying the TAxpaying American citizens favor it be my guest.

    The Constitution of The TeaBerserkers only allows poison food and hyperinflation, so Democrats may want up or down votes on specific provisions. The Health Care reform lowers presciription medicine costs for needy older people. The TeaBerserkers want them soaring instead. The Democrats may start there, and sell that all year long.

    (The TeaBerserkers, however, are not calling for the Obamas to withdraw their children from Sidwell Friends school, and enroll them in the D. C. schools nearby to the White House. Probably there are blacks enrolled in those schools.)
