If they pass it, vote against anyone who voted for it, and the Trillion Dollar failed experiment will be repealed next year. Maybe with a lot fewer brain dead in Congress. Who knows, maybe the approval rating will get above the current historic lows that the DemocRats currently enjoy.
It might help if the next version of reform would address COST ISSUES instead of funding.

We finally got rid of them with the last election. Sadly, not before our Country was raped.

Congress is SOOOO popular.. right.. at historic lows.
Their Health Care Bill is SOOO popular.. right.
If there were an election on the issue, it would be a landslide AGAINST.
On both counts, used car salesman look pretty good by comparison.
Whereas, DemocRats do not.
Where I live, the doctors aren't waiting and are already leaving the Medicare funded care provisions in droves.
Get your torches and pitchforks folks, the Enemy is in Washington.

The Docs focus on money instead of health started us down this road, this is why & how Insurance came in. Only when they took hold they didn't pretend to have any compassion; after all - they are a business. Meanwhile, back at the Ranch; "we" the people are not leaving in groves - instead; we are standing up & pushing back. We are now Cowards.
