    Wow... Can't believe I am the first one to post this.

    House Republicans passed a bill to repeal President Barack Obama’s health care plan Wednesday, taking their first major step toward rolling back the massive overhaul that has dominated the American political landscape for almost two years.

    The vote was 245 to 189, and unanimous GOP support gave the vote the same partisan feel of the March vote to pass the law, underscoring once again the hardened political lines of the health care debate. Only three Democrats backed the repeal, a smaller number than Republicans had once predicted.

    But Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.) took the debate to a new level late Tuesday night, suggesting to an empty House floor that Republican rhetoric around health care reform is akin to Nazi propaganda that fed anti-Semitism during World War II.
    Yeah. Rhetoric about repealing a nationalization of the healthcare system is akin to Nazi's blaming Jews for the problems of Germany. And this is Superman:

    Doesn't matter really because even if it did pass the senate, do you think Obumble would sign it?

    Reid says he won't even bring it up for consideration, so it's up to the House to de-fund all of Obamacide that is discretionary and force the Senate's hand. Otherwise I predict a Republican majority in the Senate in 2012. The independent voters have already shown they hate Obamacide. I'm beginning to wonder if Democrats in the Senate hate their jobs or something.
    "In England a king hath little more to do than to make war and give away places; which in plain terms, is to impoverish the nation and set it together by the ears. A pretty business indeed for a man to be allowed eight hundred thousand sterling a year for, and worshipped into the bargain! Of more worth is one honest man to society and in the sight of God, than all the crowned ruffians that ever lived."

    Perhaps they'll come to understand how the House Dems felt when they walked the plank for Pelosi and Obama.

    I hope that they do. :) I'm looking forward to sending Bob Casey Jr. home as unemployed! Being able to rid PA of 2 bad senators . . . . I'd prolly ruin my pants. :o
