There's Still Hope

While the House (Congress) recently passed their health care bill on Saturday, it doesn't mean anything is written in stone yet. Now, it's up to the Senate to pass the bill, which apparently looks like it will be a harder job to accomplish. Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y. explained, "Anyone can offer any amendment on any subject in the Senate whereas in the House, amendments are limited greatly, so therefore if you thought it was hard in the House its going to be harder in the Senate." Adding to this difficulty is the fact that there are several Democrats and an Independent (Lieberman) who are opposed to the bill. Obama has his work cut out for him.

If you are opposed to the health care bill, now more than ever, is the time to contact your Senators and let them know how you feel... and keep reminding them.

  1. I don't see it passing in the Senate, but maybe that is just the optimistic perspective of a doctor who tends to hope that most people still have some rational judgement left in them.
