Was reading this:
And in there, it speculates that if congress does not pass some sort of healthcare reform they will lose their majority in 2010, because that's what happened under Clinton. Really?
I can think of 2 reasons why they lost under Clinton - 1) they tried to pass UHC. 2) people realized that having one party control everything is dangerous and stupid. Never once would I think that their failure to pass UHC is what got the pubs back in control.
Does anyone really think that if/when the Dems lose their majority next year it will be because they don't pass healthcare?

They lost control of Congress because of the Clintons and specifically Hillary. Bill was sworn in and she suddenly started talking. She was now Hillary Rodham-Clinton,(during the campaign she was just Hillary Clinton), she had the problem with her "losing" papers crucial to her law firm's real estate fraud case(which mysteriously showed up on a hall table in the WH residence - a maid took them!), she immediately called herself "co-president", and she began telling us that our health care was bad and needed reform and she began pushing her health care bill (except it had be fine until co-president Hillary took office). The American people realized they had to shut her up so they made sure the republicans were the majority in the Congress.
