MonkeyAngst: Poopspasm: Noam Chimpsky: This vote will split up America. Bring it on, I say.

I agree. Maybe we can finally get rid of Texas.

Oh yeah... shiat, Austin is going to be a hell of a lot like the Alamo when that happens.

And it will probably end the same way.


Austin's the one place worth saving in that godforsaken shiathole. We'll air drop food and guns for our fellow gay atheist muslim abortionists.

The freedom to fark other people over is the most cherished of freedoms to the GOP.

Engage in hyperbole much, Marsha Blackburn?


I'm going to lose the freedom to have my private insurance dropped when i get sick. I'm also going to lose the freedom to be denied insurance because of a pre-existing condition.

"To amend the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to modify the first-time homebuyers credit in the case of members of the Armed Forces and certain other Federal employees, and for other purposes."

I love how that's the official name of the health care bill. Just a few other purposes.

I'm just saying, a cloture motion is not necessarily sexual.
Would you let a man give you a cloture motion?

Well that's what he said. He wanted it on record for the american people so they would know how he would have voted.

Damn, this is well written bill Weaver,

Of course I know my bill is good. When I send the GOP to write a bill, they bring back shiat. But I don't wanna talk about my bill Jules, I want to take about the dead Iraqi in my garage.

Nah. He was just entering into the record. So he can make a speech when he campaigns next time on how often he voted and how he had the standards to enter into the record how he would have voted each time he unavoidably missed a vote.

fnu: ... That's a lot of words to say "hey, there should be more tax breaks for military and federal employees".

It doesn't even do that. They're talking about the health care bill. The health care is the "other purposes".

Good lord, watching the House or Senate go about its work before a vote is like a roller coaster. 45 minutes of misery standing in line for 45 seconds of awesomeness, and then afterward you wonder if it was worth it in the first place.
 
2010-03-21 02:15:46 PM  
Well that's what he said. He wanted it on record for the american people so they would know how he would have voted.

I didn't hear the part about 'would have voted'. I thought it was a new innovative thing. I'm cool with it.

cameroncrazy1984:
Uh, what?


This is the "Senate bill" they're voting on. But all revenue bills have to originate in the House. So what the Senate did is to take a random irrelevant revenue bill the House passed (amending the first-time homebuyers' tax credit for the armed forces), strip out all its text and replace it with the entire health care bill.

They're a lot like Congress that way.

So can someone tell me what this reform will be called? Like, if someone has health care under this new system (if it passes), what will they say? We already have Medicare and Medicaid. Is this Medisocialism?
