Breaking news: Compromise on healthcare bill has been reached.

http://www.cnn.com/2009/POLITICS/07/29/health.care/index.html

A group of fiscally conservative House Democrats announced Wednesday they reached a deal with the chamber's Democratic leaders on a health care reform bill.

Are we finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel?

And to those who oppose it what do you think?

  • Will it be another government program ran and controlled by? If so I disagree on that alone.

  • Groan.
    When I first heard of the moderate Democrats ( unfortunately you CAN'T call them fiscally-conservative because they are only slightly less "big gov't" than their fellows ) ...

    When I first heard of them, I was VERY encouraged. But then when I listened to what they had to say, my hopes fell. They had no quibble with the ton of bricks coming down to crush personal rights and liberties - they just wanted the $$ to get evened out.

    Look at the other post here - "UHC as it sits. does this sound reasonable to ANYONE?" for a list of gov't invasions which have NOTHING to do with the $$.

    Darn. I'm getting scared again that they might push this monster through.

  • Well, it is going to happen sooner or later. They are not going to let it go. It doesn't matter what is in it, if the government has control of anything it will be bad for all Americans. It's cliche' to say I told you so but when it starts pouring I will come back and tell you "I told you so"

  • You knew the blue dogs were going to cave in sooner or later. Obama, Pelosi and Reid were like old coon hounds with chicken bones about this UHC.
