Healthcare Vote Scheduled

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) announced Tuesday that a vote on final passage of a health-care reform bill will take place at 8 a.m. Dec. 24. It will be followed by a vote on increasing the federal debt ceiling.


  1. Great timing. I wonder how many people will actually be there to cast their vote?

    So. . . Now the average person in the US will be saddle with even more debt and a draconian health care via these votes. Personally, I'd prefer coal in my stocking to this.

    Merry christmas.

  2. I was reading Bastiat's, 'The Law', during lunch today and was struck by a couple of his thoughts that seemed so on target for what's going on right now.

    "The law has been perverted through the influence of two very different causes -- bare egotism and false philanthropy."

    Wow, that's a bulls-eye right there.

    Another Bastiat thought is, "And this is what has taken place. The delusion of the day is to enrich all classes at the expense of each other, it is to generalise plunder under the pretence of organising it."

    I can't think of a more apt book to read in this space of time and history this week.
