Done!


The Republican controlled House just passed a repeal of Obamacare.


They promised their constituency they would!
AND THEY DID!
Great!


The Repeal passed with a 245-189 margin, with three Democrats voting for repeal.
Reps. Mike Ross, Dan Boren and Mike McIntyre joined 242 Republicans to tell Obama, Pelosi and Reid NO!


Reid has already threaten to not allow it to come to the Senate floor.
That would signal to most Americans, who appose Obamacare, that he just doesn't care what you think.


Further damaging the Democratic party by putting them on record in the house vote. 
But Reid is to much of a panty-waist to do what all Senators were elected to do. Vote on bills brought forth, as representatives of your constituents.


Some of the comments from the House leadership:
Speakers Boehner-The Congress can do better in terms of replacing Obamacare with common-sense reforms that will bring down the cost of health insurance and expand access for more Americans," 


House Majority Leader Eric Cantor-"I've got a problem with the assumption here that somehow the Senate can be a place for a legislation to go into a cul-de-sac or a dead end," he said. "The American people deserve a full hearing. They deserve to see this legislation go to the Senate for a full vote."


GOOD JOB, HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES!

Keeping it Simple: This is the Bills wording:

We are one step closer to repealing this jobs killer for good.It sure was easy for Congress to pass it. This inept bill is like an elbatroas around the Democratic Parties neck. No wonder why they want this all to go away. The Democrats made the thing that will destroy them in the end. Good!

You wonder if they are nieve or just don't care what happens. The Dems that is.
But Harry 'Ass' Reid won't let it hit the Senate floor, which is a pretty despicable act for one man to take.

Mark, funny how its despicable when Harry Reid does it, but okay when republicans do it to bills passed by congress.

I think there's a word for that.

But should single senators have the ability to stop legislation from hitting the floor of the Senate?

The problem with your analysts, Joe is that, as a GROUP you can filibuster, as the rules say you can. However one man hijacking of the Senate is not in the best interest of neither his/her constituents, nor that nation.
If you have a group willing to stop socialism in it's tracks, it should be done.
If you have one man to have sole power to, in a sense, filibuster, thats dictatorial, as he once call the premier of China.
