    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!!!

    I am glad that health care has passed. We have one more hurdle to jump. Let's keep our fingers crossed so that the cheere can go to through the land. We now can live longer thanks to health care.

    Stephen Lynch is a turncoat AND a coward AND an naked opportunist. He declared himself against the bill at a crucial moment days before the final vote, turning his back on his district, his state, his party and his president. Then, once the bill passes (and he knows precisely which way the wind is blowing), he votes "Yes" on the Reconciliation bill. You weren't there when you were needed, Lynch, but I have no doubt you will try try to spin your vote on the Reconciliation bill as "voting for health care reform."

    I will be donating time, money and effort to whomever your next primary challenger may be. You suck.

    To everyone who voted NO to the Reconciliation package. That more or less says you were for the Cornhusker agreement and everything else that was wrong with the Senate bill. For everyone who say they are fiscully conservative, how could you vote no for the Reconciliation package. Stop playing politics with our health care.

    This shows the democrats were all totally confused, just like all of America who knows we have been screwed by a bunch of lily-livered politicians.
