    I am very happy it passed so that 45,000 American taxpayers can enjoy similar benefits that we pay for so that The Republican/Democratic congress can enjoy. I am tired of paying for their wonderful perks while most Americans have nothing but dirt to eat or sleep on. When I read the reason's why Republicans don't like or want this Bill it appears to be to be a very selfish one ,MONEY. I bet everyone who was outside of the Congress yesterday was a Christian and people Jesus didn't hang out in a 4 star resort and have dinner with his stockbroker ,he taught and lived his walk with those who had nothing and said, A camel can pass through an eye of a need before a Rich Man can enter heaven. As for the Abortion women don't use for Birth Control they use it for Rape ,when 9 yr old girls are giving birth to a baby that belongs to her father something is moraly wrong in this country. When a person has to die from a lack of health care something is morally wrong in this country. For those are Christian I urge you to to read and come to the understanding of who Jesus was and what this Health Care Bill means to those who can't afford health ins. I have a very small company and it will loosen my money so I can keep providing health care for my employees ,all whom have a pre ex.
    I am willing to share my resources so that all may have health care and that 45,000 Americans will have a better chance to live. It wasn't passed quick enough to save the life of man who die at a stop sign when his heart stop ,his heart device battery had gotten too low and his doctor said,he needed to hav eit replaced but he didn't hav ethe 50,000 it took for surgery and he didn't have insurance and had lost a good job because the company moved off shore. He was delivering pizza and he was just 59 yr old. If Republicans and their TEA Baggers were really christians this man would be alive today.

    Thank you Pres O for stepping up to the Plate.

    Congressman Reichert needs to be defeated. His party-line vote is not representative of the 8th District of Washington (where I was a resident until 2 weeks ago). He purports to be a moderate, but always mindlessly follows the right-wing Republican line.

    I guess there's no need to list the 176 Republican congresspeople who voted no... No real distinction to be made. They're all lock step ideologues.

  5. Save America, impeach the treasonous republicans

    I watched the mental midget McCain this morning explain that the GOP would scrap health reform in congress. The republicans are now going to take away health coverage for 32 million, eliminate the pre existing conditions clause that will protect Americans, and put caps on lifetime benefits. I can only say, "You are a mean man Mr. Grinch."

    The republican party had no intention to vote yes for this health care bill. November I have no intentions of voting for them.

    the republicans have no legitimacy when they never work with this president. i have been watching politics for 35 years and i have never seen a more hostile minority party. i think the dems should run the table while they can because there is no compromise in these guys

    Last night was the greatest moment for Congress because they STOOD UP to the Party of NO and passed a bill that would go down in history as another HISTORICAL event of all times!!!

    It was another "tear-jerking" moment last night and I enjoyed every bit of it with my Coffee Party friends online in Facebook!!!

    Thousands chatted and we posted every moment as it happened. I guess "SILENCE is GOLDEN" and it does take SHOUTING, CURSING, SPITTING and calling people the N-WORD to get a point across!!

    We did it and we will do it AGAIN!!! YES WE CAN!!!

  9. 8 Years of “trickle down economics” has only left a wet spot on working America's shoes!

  10. A Brick in A Wall of Gridlock

    Ah yes ... you guys finally heard me ask for this ... good

    Now, let's apply the same threats, fear and intimidation [that Mitch McConnell and John Boehner have ENDORSED against Democratic members in favor of the bill] against these REPUBLICANS.

    They are vulnerable, they are obstructionists and they are part of the problem. Each one is a brick in the wall called GRIDLOCK.

    Democrats, if we don't defeat a higher a % of these GOP'ers in Obama-won districts, as compared to Democrats in McCain-won districts, you can bet the narrative out of the media will be that this healthcare INSURANCE reform bill was a millstone around our necks.

    We need to flex our power on this one and obliterate some so-called "conservatives".

    As a Nigerian leaving with hearing disability, I find the CNN Breaking news most helpful. It keeps of up to date on news all owes the world. This coverage of the health care bill has filled of with all I need to know. Thanks for this wonderful service

    Dave Camp will definitely be ousted out in November. Michigan
    citizens NEED health care reform. What is he against next.? Jobs?
    That's why we have become known as Michissippi.

    The republicans truly stood on principle, not like Stupak who, as soon as he got his gifts from the present, turned his back on right-to-life principles.

    These blue dog democrats are totally gonna get the boot now. It's better to have republicans that are proud to be evil then wolves in sheeps clothing.

  21. Dawn Ada, Oh

    OK Dems there are the names..................Now get busy and start sending money to their opponents. We need to get the Dead Wood out of office. We can continue to make great changes for the middle class, but we can not do that unless we remain involved. This is just the beginning of a long Democratic tenure in the White House, Congress, and Senate. We already know what the Republican Party can do for the middle and lower class of the United States: NOTHING!! Give your money, time and energy to the Party who actually stands up for the common man: The Democrats!!!

  22. Republicans are Repugnant Taliban

    CNN you forgot another Repugliban in a blue state who voted NO, Steve King of Iowa, another stinking Repugliban who is going to have to find a real job after this November when he finds himself out of a job.
