Looks like we have a new ally in the struggle/fight for healthcare reform
If anything approaching the proposed mess of a 'reform' is passed, the dems may find they 'won' the same way the British did at Bunker Hill.
Yes there will - a small handful of politicians and the heads of some big corporations will win big time - at the expense of all the rest of us.
<snipped - no personal attacks in the Forums>
Play special attention to the verbage though: "WE ARE WINNING" So much for non partisan politics.....
Who? Bill Clinton? Who is Bill Clinton? Oh, you mean Mr Hillary!
Let them finish and after they make a complete mess of it bring our country to it's knees then we'll never have to worry about the left ever again. They'll never get another chance to screw-up again.
Funny, that's what the Dems were saying earlier this decade...
But you do have those 2 governors now.
Yes and I'm sure "The Chicago Machine" still has more plans up it's sleve.
Both sides have said the same thing over and over again. Dems take the congress while Reagan is President, GOP takes the congress from Clinton, Dem's take the congress from Bush....see the pattern?
Hopefully, if health care does get signed into "law" the states will exercise their right to nullify it as an attempt by the federal government to overstep their constitutional bounds.
The next fight will be with our state legislatures.
I'm afraid that fight has already been fought and lost.
No it hasn't! A bill has yet to be passed by the feds. It's also possible for the states to hold a constitutional convention and amend the constitution to strengthen the rights of the states and further limit the fed's power.
A constitutional convention! When was the last time you saw that happen? The bill has a long way to go and I suspect there will be skullduggery but the provisions in the bill may allow some effort at the state level to prevent it. Don Quixote has nothing on you Poppa Blues.
But you know that ain't gonna happen. The Articles of Confederation ain't comin' back.
The states already have that right under the 10th Amendment. But since the feds are playing dirty and invoking Admin law, the states must reiterate their status under admin law to get what they once had under the 10th Amendment.
But they are doing it, so maybe things will turn out alright.

FUCK. This year will be DISASTROUS for Dems, especially when we consider that Connecticut Sen. Chris Dodd, a senior Democrat who is chairman of the Senate Banking Committee is not running for a sixth term.Web-site/URL: http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/us_massachusetts_senate

I started this as a question but perhaps it's better suited for a forum instead. Speculation has begun Obama will possibly drop from the 2012 presidential race, paving the way for Hillary Clinton to step in and "save" the Dems from a royal butt kicking. Do you think this is possible or...

It seems another side effect of the latest sexual harrassment revelations, is that some democratic women, including Senator Gillibrand of NY is having a conscience after 20 years...Now they are claiming that Bill Clinton should have resigned after the Monica Leuwinski affair came to light...Just...

I'm confused. The dems spent months crafting and passing the Healthcare Bill, but now those facing re-election are not embracing it. I read an article that stated that not a single dem is touting this accomplishment in campaign ads. I don't know if this is true or not, but so far I haven't been...
