I sure hope that President Barack Obama gets the abortion language right on his health care bill because that to me is the only thing that will hold up the U. S. House of Representatives from having the 216 votes to send this measure for the president to sign it into law.

However, the danger is that the abortion language of the bill when it was with the U. S. Senate will not be in line with the House of Representatives language and also those behind the door deals with the senator from Nebraska and the senator from Louisiana.

Other than that I can see President Barack Obama's health care passing via re-conciliation because I do not expect any Republican Party memeber in either house of the U.S. Congress to not want anything to do with this measure because it is not consistant with the Republican Party ideology of lass government and more individual liberties.

our president is in constant campaign mode. that is what he knows. he has never run a business or run a state or a town.. and it shows. millions of citizens are out of work, but Obama is still canvassing for gov't run health care.

It is time that Americans got the business of running the country straight. If we think the states are having problems now - the health care fiasco will make it worse. This legislation mandates that states take over huge parts of the health care bill and is one of the most corrupt and fiscally-irresponsible ever dreamed up in Washington! Our president hates Americans and if you think you will be getting something for free - you are sadly mistaken.

Sick? Too bad - no coverage for FOUR years. I could on and on...

We must fight this - and the first step is ousting those who have the gall of supporting such a failure and such a corrupt piece of legislation.

That would be - Melissa Bean, our local rep. Contact her and tell her that she is to represent the will of the people - and that we do not want this bill!
