U.S. Finally Passes Health Care Reform Bill

Relief at last!

After eighteen months of straining, Obama and the Democrats have finally passed a health care reform bill. It's nowhere near Canadian-style universal care, but it successfully yanks three big, rotten, over-biting front teeth from the greedy chops of U.S. health insurance companies:

-mo more denying coverage based on preexisting conditions.
-no more canceling health insurance when a policyholder gets sick.
-no lifetime limits on benefits.

The Republicans' Hitler's reaction is already posted to the internet:

Now let's see what happens in the lead-up to November. Should be interesting.

Interesting indeed. My prediction for November: Republicans get their asses kicked.

"Republicans get their asses kicked."

I hope you are right but my sense is the Dems are going to take a serious hit - will blame it on health care but really it's the economy stupid!

Willing to bet a friendly $10 on that, sir? Proceeds go to charity? :)
