    The Dums and their fellow travelers on this board are all crowing about what a great thing they did, historic, blah blah.
    What did they pass, exactly?
    Wasn't it just the Senate bill? Isn't that the bill with the Cornhusker kickback and Louisiana Purchase? The one that exempts unions from taxes on cadillac policies? The one with every dirty backroom deal in it?
    This is what they are celebrating?
    They have not passed the supposed "fix" yet.
    Anyone take bets on whether they do pass it in House and Senate? I'll bet no.

    They legalized theft. It's just that simple.

    The fix is the part that is supposed to be done now with 'reconciliation' so the GoP can't stop it.

    Its clear the Dems will vote for anything they are told, so who knows what will come next.

    Its not like they read these bills or care what is in them.

    As I posted elsewhere, some things will start immediately:


    If the Senate bill passes, here’s what happens immediately ? US Health Crisis

    Why not, the Dems just voted to have it and called it 'historic.'

    Do you think the "loyal opposition" can stop them from passing it, since they won't be able to filibuster?

    Oh, they will be able to fillibuster, as you can only 'reconcile' things that affect the budget, and with the reconcile procedure, the minority party can introduce endless amendments, and teh Dems can't stop it.

    In short, your smugness will be short lived.
