POLITICO Breaking News: -----------------------------------------------------

Sen. Tom Harkin tells POLITICO that Senate Democratic leaders have decided to go the reconciliation route for health care reform. The House, he said, will first pass the Senate bill after Senate leaders demonstrate that they have the votes to pass reconciliation in the Senate.

"Then reap what you sow in November."

We can't wait for Nov. If they pass this now we will be stuck w/ it forever.

Come hell or high water it must be stopped in its tracks.

Oh, I don’t think they’ll regret anything. They already plan on losing the election. They want their Socialist agenda in place. Once they get that, they know it’s there forever and they will get control of the House and Senate again. Probably within a few election cycles.

Disagree. Four years of taxes, no benefits. That's the time we repeal and refund the collected taxes.

Tend to agree with you. This bill is a monstrosity and a nightmare.
Kill it now!

Kill it right dead right in the house. All blue dogs must be called on the carpet.
Victory or death.

This is a bad bad dream.

I think this is all an elaborate high stakes bluff to get RINO fence sitters to jump on board to get their own “Louisiana Purchase” style payoffs, so this turd can then be labeled “bipartisan”.

“Disagree. Four years of taxes, no benefits. That’s the time we repeal and refund the collected taxes.’

Wrong. Just like any other government action - it’s virtually impossible to reverse.

This bill needs to be killed now. I’m disappointed that it seems like the powers (both public and rep) to stop this thing are losing steam.

These are the final hours. Bold action needs to be taken or it will be too late.... and at that point it won;t make a damn bit of difference who wins in NOV. It becomes nothing but a horse race to watch for sport — all the rhetoric will be nonsense.

What happens if the reconcilation bill does not pass either chamber after the House passes the Senate bill? Then that bill becomes the law of the land! If the blue-dog dems fall for this charade, shame on them. This is a charade!

Yeah, been reading about that. Their salivating over what they can loot. Who was it that wanted to do a "ONE TIME" 15% tax on retirements? These asshats simply cannot spend everyone else's money quick enough.

They can try, but this will never make it out of the chamber. The procedure to pass a bill this way is SO complicated and messy. Because it goes the way of a budget bill the Pubs can literally require this baby to be passed line by line. They have signaled they will do just that. They public will freak out and dems will be jumping ship before anything can be accomplished. That's my story and I'm sticking to it!

Ping. You’re right, there’s still a long way to go for Onadacare to become reality. In the meantime we have the next round of mid-terms coming up and we need to Tea Party the crap out of them all the way the 2012 Presidential Election..

Whenever those Marxist pigs leave the Capitol building, or the buildings where the have their offices, they need to feel the heat.

That was Hillary during the campaign and I think she proposed taking 10% right off the top. Apparently, her idea wasn’t “bold” enough.

I wonder about that too. If that botoxed old crone, Pelosi, had the votes she would have passed the Senate bill by now. It would put the focus on Reid, whom she hates, and allow her time to crow about how powerful she is.

No one gets it. It is actually a pretty smart gamble on the Dems part. They are now forcing the GOP to run solely on rolling back what the Dems have done, thus creating a campaign of negativity right off the bat. The GOP got us into this mess-they should be strong arming Lincoln, Bayh, Brown, Landriue (sp?) and any other Dem who has demonstrated sense to bring them under 51 votes. If they were really serious they could do it, but aren’t. Why should they, it wont affect them either..

They won't be able to do that.

They will need a 2/3s vote to override a guaranteed Obama veto. It will never happen.
