    Look at that sneaky Chuck Schumer in this, he will look so smarmy in a prison uniform. And did you notice, the all praised that murdering womanizer Kennedy. What a fitting legacy this monstrosity of dumb legislation is to that thug who should just now be getting out of jail for his crimes. Liberals are some really sick people. Lets get the story on the 18 month Rangel ethics investigation.

  3. If you want something ruined, put a republican in charge

    The Democrats should play a little "Rocky" music, after over coming the biggest anti health reform blitz in history. The Health insurance industry must have paid over a billion dollars in anti reform advertisements and lobbyists to defeat this.

    Bottom line, the American people are the winners.

  4. Obama = WORST president EVER

    Every crooked Democrat in the Senate should be getting their resumes together. If there's any justice, Harry Reid, Blanche Lincoln and Ben Nelson will soon be among the unemployed.

    Finish line– a lot of senators have finished their time in the senate with their vote for this stupid bill. When they come up for re-election vote them out. That will be a positive for our country.

    Lookiing at the coverage for the healthcare bill and Orin Hatch is whining about his name not being on the bill like it was on the CHIP bill that was bi-partisan. Since I followed this debate and the actions of both parties involved, I don;t see where he and any other Republican has any room to whine. The republicans were invited to participate and the drafting of the bill was changed to meet their specifications by removing the things like Medicare buy-in, public option, and any other thing that the insurance companies and their lobbyists were against. What the American people can look forward to is that they will now hear what is in the bill instead of the opposition to the bill and the lies that were told in all those months leading up to the legislation. There is finally some action being taken in regards to the purpose that the lawmakers were elected to do.

    The Socialists may win the battle and pass this healthcare takeover, but the war is far from over!

    This bill is unconstitutional in so many ways, and the states will challenge it in court – and win!

  13. Perusing-Through

    FINALLY, AFTER 77 YEARS . . . Hooray for the Democratic Party! :-)

    President Franklin Roosevelt and Democrats propose a better national health reform during his campaign in 1932. The Democrats continued to fight for health reform since the Great Depression.

    History will smile on the Democrats once more as the People's Party, the same party that brought the nation out of the Great Depression that was shuttled in by Republicans; and the same party ushered in a Social Security programs that allows seniors to have a little something when they retire from the work force.
