Breaking News!!! Healthcare billed scrubbed, can't get out of committee!

Just reported on Fox News (television). I couldn't find a link yet.

It seems the bill doesn't have enough support and will go back to the drawing board.

Is this a momentary reprieve or the death of it? Your thoughts.

BTW, I thought it was interesting since Obama was just saying "I want this done now!" I guess even the president doesn't always get his way....

  • Wonderful!!!!!!!!!!!! I just wrote both of my senators and my congressional representative to vote against any bill that gave the government power over our health care system and taxed citizens with health care to pay for the program. I am ecstatic!

  • Woo Hoo. Hope it dies now as is predicted. That will pretty much be the end of Obama's reign if this dies too. He will be an ineffective pres now.

  • I think Obama's many leftist buddies over estimated their ability to screw the American people.

    Such stupid tunnel vision from these folks.

    Obama needs to stop surrounding himself with so many radical yes men.

    Most Americans are moderate, and wouldn't you have thought he'd know that?

    Nobody told him the way things really are, no matter what George Soros buys!

    And dern, it took an election to read the writing on the damned wall!

    Talk about rude awakenings!

    Expensive for somebody.

    George can afford it...............

  • Well, appearently some one woke up! I wrote my congress rep and told him why he shouldn't sign that bill. I don't think my letter really did much but it beats me sitting around complaining and not doing anything at all. Now is the time to keep those who woke up awake to what else is going on.

  • They'll never give up. We have to just treat it like a career, to stay on top of it and not let up.
