the rest of the story - Sen. Coburn had presented an ammendment that all should read the bill before voting

Tagged:  

the mainstream news covered his objection to Sen. Brown's ammendment, but not what happened just before that.

"One of the reasons that I want this, is it not his belief that the American people get to see this for 72 hours as well and that it ought to be on the internet and everybody in America, if we're going to take one-sixth of our economy, that we ought to have the time to truly read, you know, we're going to have a managers' amendment and that's actually what mine is focused on."

No votes yet

The GOP's not interested in reading the bill. That's why they don't understand what's in it.

But then Conyers isn't misrepresenting the bill with talk of death panels, killing grandma, socialism, Soviet-style rationing, etc.

Nice deflection, you should be a hockey goalie.

Nah, he's just voting for something he knows nothing about.

I still want to know, if this health care bill is so good, will the president, his family, and congress and their families be willing to be covered by it?

According to the democrats, health care is broken.
Their health care bll will fix it
It will cover an additional 40 odd million people
It's not going to cost anything we wouldn't spend already
They will cut 500+million from Medicare
There will be no rationing of care
This is all gonna happen without a large influx of new doctors.

P.T. Barnum was right, there's a sucker born every minute.

I think this bill is crap. There's not enough in it to control costs. Since there's no public option and a mandate to buy insurance, it becomes a huge giveaway to private insurance companies. The bill's been watered down too much, but they'll still pass it.

It infuriates me that they can legally bribe certain senators for their vote. So basically, those senators states will get moore for their tax dollars then others. Sounds fair....not.

They should just start referring to "those" senators as, Senator Whore.
