Full story: New York Times

Nasty charges of bribery. Senators cut off mid-speech. Accusations of politics put over patriotism.

Well, it is apparent that Obama has broken his promise on transparency. Did the House or Senate even give the Repubs a chance to look at the bill? I mean, most of it was crafted behind closed doors. How much of it is pork?

presidunce obama promised ALL Americans that he would have every second of his hellcare bill on c-span & that he would go over with any congressperson LINE BY LINE if requested - WHAT A LIAR AND CON ARTIST obama HAS REVEALED HIMSELF TO BE!!!

NOW WITH LOUISIANA GETTING A $380,000,000,000 BRIBE TO VOTE FOR IT & NOW THAT NELSON GOT A HUGE BRIBE TO VOTE FOR IT - I AM NOT SURPRISED AT ALL THAT THE DEMOCRAPS CAVED INTO obama PRESSURE!

THE OTHER 49 STATES PAYING FOR NEBRASKAS HEALTHCARE - AND THEY ARE EXEMPT FROM PAYING IS THE MOST UNFAIR CORRUPTION I'VE SEEN FROM obama AND HIS LIBERAL CRONIES YET!!!!!

obama LIED AMERICANS DIED

Thank goodness for Lieberman. Without him, imagine what this putrid sellout of America would have been like.

Anyone who thinks we don't need health care reform is living under a rock.

A nonagenarian forced to the floor after midnight for multiple procedural votes.... The thin margin also required that Senator Robert C. Byrd, who turned 92 last month, be brought to the chamber in his wheelchair after midnight to cast his vote.
Wouldn't it be ironic (read: hilarious) if all this duplicitous voting for this $hy healthcare bill caused ol' Byrdy (aka 'Senator KKK') to snuff it before the final vote?

And if it DOES pass, how many of those senators are going to be in (justifiable) mortal fear for their lives when they go home to their constituencies? As they should WELL be.

Bryd thought they were voting on a bill for pets. He didn't realize that 'Billie' died some years ago.

Yes, we need reform of healthcare coverage, but only fools and liars can claim this whoring pig of a bill is "reform."
