Woohoo! 219-212 in favor in the House to approve the Senate HCR bill. Vote on reconciliation measures coming up later tonight.

My life has been unwillingly voted to the devil, on the flip side, maybe my pay towards benefits will be switched back to me since health care is "guaranteed."

While it is a step in the right direction, this bill does not cover enough people and doesn't seem to do anything to lower costs immediately. Maybe that is just my understanding. Good job on passing the bill, but I sure wish they would have tried to push through something stronger.

Despite the passage of the Senate bill, the related bill vote to require reconciliation is becoming a major battle point by Republicans, especially as to Abortion and any use of Federal monies to pay for them, even indirectly. Despite the bill being passed tonight, it still faces massive challanges, dirty politics and probably many millions in lobbying. Worse, it will delay doing the right thing - to make sure everyone has access to affordable health care.

Re: lowering costs - yes, the bill as a whole doesn't, but that's because it balances one necessary but cost-increasing step (banning pre-existing condition discrimination) with a cost-mitigating step (the individual mandate). Together, they about cancel out. But yeah, cost control is the next big step.

Also - the solution that was worked out to the abortion question was that Obama will sign an executive order forbidding the use of federal funds for abortion. NOW and NARAL are pissed about it, but the Republicans are arguing that an executive order is easily changed later on and is therefore insufficient protection against federally funded abortions. Just goes to show that a good compromise is one where both sides are angry about it.  Smile

Yeah wait until you get the bill in a few years. Passing off a bill as "Deficit reduction" by using sham accounting is something that will have to be reckoned with one day, sooner than later. Nothing like collecting revenues for the first 4 years to cover up the fact it will cost the taxpayers a fortune, and that's not even accounting the Medicare Doctor Fix cuts that they'll have to pass...

The funny part will be when 15 or so million people who are forced onto Medicaid because of this bill get a rude introduction to doctors who refuse the insurance and underfunded mandates from the States...That's the reason States are furious over this bill because they will be left with a huge tab.

There has now been a vote for the Senate Bill in both houses and this bill will go to the President. Legally he could sign it in the next few minutes, but believe he will wait until some supporters are able to come to the White House.

The House will soon vote on the :Fix It" Bill, which will include reform of student loans as well as the House's changes for the Senate Bill. There has been a letter signed by 50+ Democrat Senators assuring the House of their support. Those against the Bill can delay the reconciliation, but they cannot beat it.

Essentially all this means is that there has been a start at changing health care in this country. There are a lot of different opinions on this, but I believe this step provides a more suitable foundation for changes that will come from both sides of the aisle in the future.

I would also note that this vote is a huge victory for the first woman to be the Speaker of the House. Like her or hate her she has achieve a historic victory, and will go down in history as such.

The U.S, now joins other highly developed nations with a healthcare plan that will allow for coverage of ALL of it's citizens, despite their pre-existing conditions and makes coverage available based on their ability to pay - sounds alot like a 40 year old program called Medi-Care, doesn't it. Now the fools in Washington can focus on getting the US economy moving again.... oh wait, its an election year.... nevermind!

They already had a large role in it with Medicaid, Medicare, S-CHIP, so it's essentially more of the same. They're essentially shoving 15 million people on Medicaid and forcing the rest to buy insurance. It's a parrot of RomneyCare in Massachusetts that has MA residents paying the highest premiums in the US.

I'd be more concerned with the trend. First the Mortgage/Housing Markets, the Auto Industry, Healthcare, and next up is the Student Loan industry. There's nothing wrong with have social services/benefits, but in an era of multi-trillion dollar deficits, people have to be fools to believe the international community is going keep buying our Debt. The emperor has no clothes and people here don't want to face up to that fact yet...

With the deficits what they are, our day of reckoning is coming soon.

- Medicaid paymetns
- VA Médical
- Children's Health
- Indian Health Clinics
- Government employee health insurance

I really don't understand the resistance to this bill or other healthcare reform.

What, specifically, is scaring people?

Even if it's broken, we can hope for it to be fixed in coming years. In my opinion, anything that gets more people coverage and starts to turn things in the direction of most civilized countries is a good thing. Even if it costs me some money.

I get the idea that people just don't like to share. They like to feel superior. Sad.

No, but they'll have to worry about rising premiums, Doctors that won't accept Medicaid, and of course the national debt rising to unsustainable levels.

Listen I was a huge supporter of Massachusetts Health Reform that Obamacare is based on. It was proposed by Mitt Romney and signed into law by a Democratic Legislature. We were promised the same exact things the American public was: Near Universal Coverage, lower costs, subsidized premiums for those who can't afford it, and smaller deficits because we would have more people covered.

To give them credit, we do have the lowest uninsured rate in the USA. Problem is, we're having a heck of a time paying for it. The cost has more than doubled and premiums are rising sharply every year. So MA has raised fees and the sales tax from 5% to 6.25%

I get my insurance from the State run Health Insurance Exchange. Before I turned 27 I paid $180 a month for HMO Blue Cross care, no caps, no prescription coverage (because I don't take any meds, but that was $20 more a month). So then I turned 27 and voila now I pay $308 a month for the SAME plan except with a mandatory prescription coverage that I'm forced to buy...

You can see the drift of where this is going. There's nothing wrong with making insurance affordable and more accessible. Just keep in mind we're going to have to pay for it somehow.

Tens of millions? The best number is 8-14 million from the Kaiser Family Institute which is hardly a conservative mouthpiece. And those "millions" you speak of will be put on Medicaid and THAT is why the States are pissed. Good luck with funding that.

You can blame insurance companies all you want, but they aren't making huge sums of money. (Do some research, their gross profit margin is a few percent). And CEO's of most large corporations make millions of dollars.

I pay my own premiums and I don't bow down to anyone. People have a right to be angry since 55% of Americans opposed this bill. People are worried how we as a nation are going to pay for this in an era of TRILLION dollar deficits.

They will .... the ones who pay the bills will .

With a super majority .... what the hell took em so long ? Oh ya , the indivduals had to get the payoffs , and taken care of for when they are voted out of office in November...lots of tidying up needed to be done.

The senate reconciliation bill does not even need to be passed ....this thing is law by wedensday.

Obama is not my president, he is a socialist piece of scum and an parriah on the nation. I will hate him untill he dying day.

If you cannot live with being the opposition every once in a while,

Only works if the opposition has the power to stop up the works. Unfortunately so many stupid people voted democrat in the last election just to spite Bush we don't have that right now. With any luck with the increased number of Republican that will be voted in office because of this anti-american legislation that situation will change.
OBAMA-WORST PRESIDENT EVER....Even SKOORB would be better.

They are scared that the gov't is getting too much power. They don't care that tens of millions of people who can't afford health care, can finally get coverage, instead of going to a friggin free clinic where they can't get adequate care. All they preach is "no free lunch" over and over again. They bow down to the insurance companies and their CEOs who make millions on top of millions of dollars, while they raise insurance premiums for someone who just got cancer.

Conservatives eliminated all of the well paying manufacturing jobs in the US that these tens of millions of people used to have to get health care.

Liberals then further destroyed the country by imploding our tax system by handing out way much more money than they take in. I still fail to see how it is sustainable for the average person in the US to recieve MORE money from the government than they give to it in the first place. Perhaps we should create a government agency to look into that too.

People are worried how we as a nation are going to pay for this in an era of TRILLION dollar deficits.

We can't. There is absolutely no way to pay for this program. CA is ruined beyond belief, NY is quickly following and several other states are in very poor shape. Within 5 years, this program will make Social Security look cheap.
Every problem has a simple solution; finding the simple solution is the difficult problem.

And then the lawsuits starts.

Hopefully the courts will recognize the graft and bribery and unconstiutional processes that where used to pass this and rule it invalid based on that.

Look for injuctions shortly

You know what's the best part of this whole HCR fiasco.. Liberals/Dems are just as f*cked as the GOP and Independents and they don't even realize it!  

Can't change the rules of economics - This is going to be the 'straw that broke the camel's back'

Oh well.. at least Obama will have managed to finally create jobs - 16,000 IRS agents

Another Obama accomplishment - The inevitable loss of the AAA credit rating thanks in part to this POS

Libs and Dems...Celebrate tonight... it's all down hill from here.

Whether you like it or not, he is your President, elected by the people of the US. Now if you want to give up your citizenship, be my guest.

That's incorrect. He's not my president, as he is ineligible to be in that position. To be truthful everything he has signed is invalid. I don't have to give up my citizenship for that fact.

And the proof, the documentation? He is the President, duly elected, live with it.
