    White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said the healthcare bill will pass by next weekend."We'll have the votes when the House votes, I think, within the next week," Gibbs said on "Fox News Sunday."

    Gibbs added that those on next week's Sunday talk shows "will be talking about healthcare not as a presidential proposal but I think as the law of the land."

    President Barack Obama will look to campaign on the new healthcare law in midterm elections, Gibbs said."We believe healthcare reform is going to pass, and once it passes we're happy to have the 2010 elections be about the achievement of healthcare reform," Gibbs said.

    But Republicans on Fox said there's no guarantee the bill passes and that Democrats will benefit from it."If they pass this thing, I think they lose the House of Representatives this fall," said former Bush White House adviser Karl Rove.If Democrats do pass it, "then the American people will be the losers," said House Minority Whip Eric Cantor (R-Va.).

    "This is a trillion-dollar-bill attempting to overhaul healthcare for every single American," Cantor added.Cantor also criticized Democrats for talking about "bending the rules" by holding a single House vote that allows passage of both the bill passed by the Senate and a package of fixes.

    If it passes, it would not surprise me that the bill will be a dark deep secret under lock and key with Repubs and the public not being able to see it . That way, lawsuits would be difficult not knowing what's in this monstrosity.

    Uh, no. Once bills are passed into law they are signed by the president. At that point they're called Public Laws and are published in the United States Code.

    I know but those Democrats would love to hide it until after the Nov elections.

    I agree they likely would, but it's not possible. What they're counting on is that people will have forgotten all about it by then, and with the attention span of many of the American people, it might not be a bad bet.

    I don't think that people will forget about it. However, you are correct about the attention span of many Americans. I think this is a totally different ball game with high unemployment, out of control spending, deficits going thru the roof, people worried about losing their jobs, etc. This will just be one more stake driven into the heart of the Democratic party.

    "Our president delivered his State of the Union message to Congress. That is one of the things his contract calls for -- to tell congress the condition of the country. This message, as I say, is to Congress. The rest of the people know the condition of the country, for they live in it, but Congress has no idea what is going on in America, so the president has to tell 'em." ~ Will Rogers
