Historic health care reform bill moves forward
Good news Saturday night when the U.S. Senate voted 60-39 to allow debate on the historic health care legislation.
The majority of Americans want health care reform -since President Roosevelt, Teddy that is, yet every single Republican voted to block debate. They didn’t necessarily vote against the bill itself, they voted against even debating the bill. All the Democrats and independents did the right thing and stood up for the American people, and Republicans, again, stood up for rich insurance company CEOs.
Lie after Republican lie has been debunked, and it continued tonight. Amazing; they all voted against even debating the bill. I say, fine; then you don’t get to debate the bill.
After all, they have not offered any real plan of their own, and all they can do is say no and block real reform. All they want is the status quo.
