  • Have they submitted the final bill to be voted on? Weren't they going to do that sometime this month?

  • It's on hold until Brown is sworn in, at which point they no longer have enough votes for it to pass, so they start over.

  • Keeping our fingers and toes and eyes and split-ends crossed, fervently hoping they do not mangle the laws in order to pass it. ...

    Keeping our emails and faxes and letters and phone calls pouring into our Congressmen's offices, so they are not lulled into compliance by pressure from those who want the $$ and power this monstrosity will give to them.

  • I think it depends on who you talk to, really. Some seem to think that it will be passed, come hell or high water, whether they have to parachute over the wall, or whatever, but they will by golly pass a health care bill. Most see it as dead in the water.

  • Liberals will say it is alive and well - just like the American people want. Conservatives will say it is dead - just like the American people want. I think it is probably at least in the death throws after the election of Scott Brown and the loss of the supermajority held by the dems.

  • It's a shame that idiot spamming all the Al Gore fellating questions bumped the one about the CNN focus group off the page - the Dems need to pay attention to that before October.
