    God bless the USA...House pased the health care bill 219 to 212!

    God bless Obama and God bless America and our good people who now will have affordable health care options and no cap on benefits and existing condition exclusions. It took 100 years, but Obama/Biden got it done! Uncle Teddy would be so happy if he were here with us.

    • I don't think that most people understand what is really happing in the Obama health care takeover. A large number of hard working, lower income people will be forced onto Medicaid and liens will be placed on their assets and homes by the government: http://aspe.hhs.gov/daltcp/Reports/liens.htm They will essentially lose control of everything that they have worked for a lifetime to accumulate. High income individuals like myself, will be forced out of their high-deductible plans and forced to purchase plans costing at least $10,000 more annually. In accordance, they will curtail spending and sink the economy. In addition, the bill will cost over a trillion dollars more than Obama and the Democrats are projecting because of the games played with sidecars and the CBO scoring. There will be dire future consequences.

    • I agree with you 100%. It will take several years for this legislation to play out but in the end it will be seen as the right thing to do and the economics of it will work out OK vs. benefits to USA.

      • Yes, progressive ideas and legislation have always come from the Democrats.....

        Equality for woman, Social Security plan, Medicare for seniors, Veteran's benefits for our brave in the service, Civil Rights for all......
        Nobody every had to thank a Republican for these ideas and now we deem these very necessary and popular and golly gee....dare I say, many are overseen by the US government. Fancy that?
