Do not be fooled by the amendment removing abortion funding from this bill. The funding can and probably will be included in the final bill that comes out of reconciliation between the House version, and the Senate version to come.
Of course, also remember that the bill passed still contains the “death panel” provisions, funding for contraception, felony penalties for refusal to purchase an insurance policy, healthcare rationing and a thousand other Stalinist provisions that will have the effect of killing the private healthcare industry, reducing care, greatly raising taxes and taking away Constitutional rights.
Other than that, a great bill. Hail the great leader! If public opinion is not important to this gang of thugs, as it clearly is not, it makes you wonder if we really need elections anymore. I am sure the leader wouldn’t mind ending the inconvenience of them.
Probably a fait accompli, but keep the pressure on the Senate. The communists need 60 votes to end a filibuster.
