    Dems 219 for 39 against
    Rep 1 for 176 against

    WASHINGTON – In a victory for President Barack Obama, the Democratic-controlled House narrowly passed landmark health care legislation Saturday night to expand coverage to tens of millions who lack it and place tough new restrictions on the insurance industry. Republican opposition was nearly unanimous.


    The 220-215 vote cleared the way for the Senate to begin debate on the issue that has come to overshadow all others in Congress.


    A triumphant Speaker Nancy Pelosi likened the legislation to the passage of Social Security in 1935 and Medicare 30 years later.

    God help us all.

    Unless there are some people in the Senate with some backbone, this is the beginning of the end.

    who ever he is - his opponent is getting my money this year. I don't care if satan is running against him.
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    I took a less expensive health plan at work for 2010 in fear of my health benefits being taxed at work.
