The deomcrats in Washington want to force an unpopular bill on us but do not want to be held accountable to the voters wrath. There are a lot of weasels in Washington that need to find a no job in Nov 2010

Madame Kilroy if you do not stand up and stop this parlementarian trick that your friend Pelosi is cooking up, then you will show us how truly despicable you are! No politician should be allowed to hide their vote. If you feel that strongly about voting for it then stand up and be counted. Do not hide like a worm.

If this thing is so great why is everyone already passing the buck on it? You will not be able to hide behind somantics when election time rolls around. This bill will force responsible families nation-wide to foot the bill for people who want to work the system.

Well the nut job marxist from Cleveland sold out his far left marxist for Obama deathcare to see area 51.

He needs to be sent back to his old home in the car on the streets with out any money. take from the rich and gove to the poor, this is what Obama wants.

Lets take fron the dems and Soros and the rest of the left like AL Bore, Nancy Puke, John love child Edwards and the Clintonista's and Obama's.

Than give it to the lost middle class.

Now that is hope and change we can count on.

True. They seem to forget that there is a Democrat majority who still can't get the legislation passed without threatening to plat dirty tricks. The Democrats want to blame the Republicans, however, they are still not listening to the will of the people.

yeah the scumbag politicians play games with our lives. leave us the hell alone already! yous idiots cannot even run your own damned lives. if this health enslavement bill is so great why aren't politicians included in it? answer: because they think themselves to be the elite ruling class, and this bill is directed at enslaving free Americans who will then be totally dependent on the federal government.

politicians spar while Americans are getting K.O.'d by their self-centered legislature.

kill this health enslavement bill now or there will be serious revolts against 'your excellencies', and then yous will have NO power over us at all.

How short sighted can you be? Lift up the rock and see that if someone who has a pre-exisitng condition (i.e. a bad back) the big insurance co. can deny them coverage. Health care will benefit everyone, not the lucky ones who have good health care
