In a 219-212 vote, HISTORY WAS MADE!  Isn't it amazing how just 7 votes can sway a bill?  In the past months, I have heard so many different opinions of this health care bill.  Many were for the bill passing.  Many were against it.  Where do you stand??  Why are you for or against this bill passing?  What are the pros and cons of Government initiated health care?

It would be nice if Democrats and Republicans, alike, would post their opinions and views of this startling news.

I have very mixed feelings. Increased taxes, socialism, needed relief, abortion, will the Senate follow through with their promises, will it really change anything positively for the majority of Americans, am I my brother's keeper? All unanswered the morning after.

Bill, I think a lot of people have mixed feelings about the Health Care Bill passing. I'm glad you visited my site and made your opinion known. Isn't that the beauty of our Freedom of Speech! Thanks for the time you took out to post. I appreciate it!

No mixed feelings here, Deb... I have nothing but sadness and FEAR. YES---all of us want healthcare reform. I don't think Democrats believe the rest of us when we say that we REALLY do want the uninsured to have insurance. We DO... That's not the issue.

To me, I hate losing my freedom---and this congress wants to gradually take away MY freedom of choice. If they had their way, they would be telling me how many pieces of toilet paper I can use.

They want to take from the rich and give to the poor. That is NOT the way to do it. They want the Government to be in charge of US --since they think that the Government knows best. Just look at the mess the Govt. has us in --when it comes to things that they run (Post Office, Social Security, the Census, etc. etc. etc.)... They can't run ANYTHING efficiently. Why would i want them in charge of my healthcare? Scary as heck!!!!

I want less government in my life. I don't like Socialism. I like Capitalism. I don't want increased taxes. There has to be better ways of doing it.

Just my opinion, but today, I am very very sad.
Hugs,
Betsy

I agree with Bill.

Also, I have a problem with the devious nature with which this bill was passed. The secrecy, the urgency, the manipulations, votes bought in exchange of money and favors, etc. Threats?

I'm sure some of this has always been going on but not with the blatant "in your face" arrogance toward the American people that this administration has stooped to.

I believe all politicians should include themselves in this plan-------and why not----------are they so above the people that they should have "better" ?

I believe we are moving backward not forward. I believe in the Constitution and the bill of rights which is exactly what is being challenged and trampled on by these Politicians.

These are the issues that bother me.
Thanks for your post in allowing me to vent. LOL
