    If this were truly about health care reform, there would be tort reform written into the bill that congress narrowly passed on Saturday. It's not there, it's about control over you and your physician, and it's about taking more and more of your hard earned money.

    House Health Bill Has Nowhere to Go in Senate - FOXNews.com

    WASHINGTON -- Don't look for the Senate to quickly follow the House on health care overhaul.

    A government health insurance plan included in the House bill is unacceptable to a few Democratic moderates who hold the balance of power in the Senate. They're locked in a battle with liberals, with the fate of President Obama's signature issue at stake.

    If a government plan is part of the deal, "as a matter of conscience, I will not allow this bill to come to a final vote," said Sen. Joe Lieberman, the Connecticut independent whose vote Democrats need to overcome GOP filibusters.
