    As a voting democract, I congratulate Scott Brown for winning the late Ted Kennedy's seat.

    With that being said, I can assure you that he may not have a say in the final passage of the bill. Some think that this election is a referendum on President Obama. No it wasn't; it's a referendum on House speaker Nancy Pelosi.

    It was her ultra liberal version of the health care bill that scared the grassroots community into believing that we're going socialist. It was all of her grandstanding that'd stalled the talks between the republican and democratic leaders.

    Now look at her; she's now probably within a year away from losing her job as house speaker. And all because she forgot that the real leader of her party is President Obama.

    Now with that being said, she does have an opportunity to salvage what's left of her career. It's a real simple deal; she needs to prepare her house dems to vote for the senate version of the bill. If the house passes the senate bill, the bill does not need to go back to the senate beacuse it's already been passed by the senate.

    All that's left to do is for President Obama to sign the bill into law.

    There is no doubt in my mind that President Obama will call her to the White House, sit her down and tell her what will happened if she doesn't do that. Here's my take as to what will happen if Pelosi continues to push the house bill.

    1. The senate dems will have no choice but to make a compromise bill
    2. That bill will pass the house
    3. That bill will go to the senate, where the GOP senators will use every means to block the final vote until October. From there, it becomes the primary campaign issue; should the GOP win control of either the house or senate, HEALTH CARE REFORM IS DEAD!!!

    So now you know. The final push for health care reform is now in Nancy Pelosi's hands. Will she stick with the house version and sink the Democratic party in November or will she swallow her pride, tell her house members to pass the senate bill and put something out there to work with.

    For President Obama, if there's any time to tell every democratic politician that you're "The President of the United States!!!" the time is now!!! Don't ask the house to pass the senate bill, tell them!!! You asked them for over ten months now; no more asking. Tell the house to pass the senate bill and have it on your desk by March.

    Obama and Pelosi need to understand that the GOP wants to drag issue into November; nip it in the bud and get it over with ASAP!!!

    Health care reform is President Obama's legacy; he could make our country safer and provide a ton of jobs, but if he loses this battle, his legacy will be tarnished and the Democrats might as well start packing now.

    This is our country's true #1 domestic issue; I hope that these two don't get caught up in the smoke and mirrors. End this issue now and move on to the next domestic subject, jobs.

    Now that's my two cents.

    Like hell it is....The anemic economy holds that position.

    If dems are 1/10th as smart as they like everyone to think they are, they'll drop the socialized medical services and cap-n-tax bills post haste.

    ^^^ What he said.... and, for the record, IT WAS NOT TED KENNEDY'S SEAT - the seat belongs to the people of MA, not Ted or anyone else. Fact.

    That might be true if Obama wasn't as far left as Pelosi is. I would agree though that Obama couldn't care less what passes right now at this point as long as he gets something to stroke is ego with.

    If the dems continue to push healthcare, they'll be in the minority come November. If they drop healthcare, they may be able to salvage a couple of seats...but then again it may be too late.
