Republican - re·pub·li·can (r-pbl-kn) - political party, which will control part of Congress 2011-2012, undermining the strength of the country - on purpose, in public, without apology or shame - simply for a campaign advantage in 2012.

racehorse wrote: The House of Representatives has just passed the Senate Reconciliation Amendments to the Health Care Reform Bill by a vote of 220-207. The House did not pursue any other changes to the bill. The long legislative process regarding this issue is now over. The Reconciled Bill will now go to the President for his signature which could come as early as tomorrow but will probably occur some time next week.


The Reconciled Health Care Reform Bill has now been signed by the President and is now law.

The end of megman reply a couple of pages back saying we are the last of the industrial grouped nations to get healthcare reform caught my eye. It must be hilarious to live in those other half dozen nations in that group you listed and look around and think "Wait? we are commies?" while listening to the debate/illogical rants.

When the GOP get back in power, I fully expect them to repeal the entire thing and then cut ties from all these nations that have universal health care just like we do with Cuba. I mean come on, if you listen to the loudest Conservs it's a tiny step away from full fledged communism so how can we expect to travel or trade with those nations. ;)

Dance to heal the earth. Not just when you're dancing, but always. Live the dance, whenever you move, in all you do, dance to heal the earth.

Maybe you should go back and reread the WHOLE post.

I find no humor in it what so ever, never implied anything of the sort to suggest Communism, and I'm deeply offended.........

I do not feel that OMG was ripping on you, Megman. The comment was a logical extrapolation of the right wing's confliction in world affairs and is firmly based in the Rumsfeld idea that "Old Europe" is comprised of commie chocolate makers.

I agree with you (and OMG) that it is far past time for America to join the civilized world.
