Christmas Eve Vote – Health Care Passes In Senate

by | Dec 24, 2009 | Headline News | 4 comments

While Americans celebrate Christmas, the Senate was hard at work voting on the health care bill.

At 7:16 a.m., the Senate passed on a 60-39 party line vote a sweeping health care bill that will tighten insurance regulations, provide insurance for 31 million more Americans and cost $871 billion over the next decade.

“This is for my friend Ted Kennedy, aye,” said Sen. Robert Byrd as he cast his vote.


Republican leader Mitch McConnell responded: “This fight isn’t over. My colleagues and I will work to stop this bill from becoming law. That’s the clear will of the American people — and we’re going to continue to fight on their behalf.”

The final law has not been enacted, but it looks like it may be inevitable at this point.

This is a Christmas present America will regret for generations to come.

      Anyone who is hoping for any help from the Supreme Court had better change hope for somthing else .  I get the feeling that the court won’t touch this or ,  its now so liberal that it will rubber stamp this mess . Just my humble opinion folks !

      …and another thought…the only thing that the GOP can do now is wait until thay get a majority (And eventually thay will ) then de-fund this bill and everything in it and add so many regulations to water it down as to make the whole thing worthless .  and hammer every bill comming out of the whitehouse to the point that bho will regret that he sees the light of a new day because of what he will have to put up with from the GOP.  Then mabye just mabye we can take our country back .
