    Thank you for passing this health care reform package because now we have something give state nullification some credence.

    Thank You, I hope the bill lands on Obama's desk so that the 30 or so states that have nullification proposals can now enact them.

    Today's vote was only to have the debate on the bill.

    Loooong way to go yet.

    I hate to say this but if they can get 60 votes to debate it then they can probably get at least 51 to pass it.

    To put it mildly...we are fucked in the ass royally! But the good news is that the health care reform will cover the rape examination kit.

    You don't REALLY have any idea what you are talking about do you? The vote tonight was to simply allow official debate on the proposed legislation. NO legislation has been voted on by the senate, much less passed.

    That is true, but a glimmer (just a glimmer) of hope went away seeing Reid bribe to get his votes. The Ds do tend to fall in line, after they get their bribe to take back home with something to show for it. Did you hear Blanche Lincoln stutter? How Freudian was that?

    A letter is not enough. I've got to go make a personal appearance in Senator Bayh’s office. It's well known that he's a linchpin of common sense from a conserrvative state.

    Common sense and conservative are mutually exclusive terms.

    The world always moves to be more progressive.

    Always.

    I support the premis but would have you consider the fall of the Roman Empire, or California spending.

    All empires fall. Ours is no exception.

    But the world is getting better, every day.
