New details in what Democrats might seek to have passed in the final bill.
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/huff-w...care-overhaul/No decisions have been made, lawmakers said, but they laid out a new approach that could still include these provisions: limiting the ability of insurance companies to deny coverage to people with medical problems, allowing young adults to stay on their parents' policies, helping small businesses and low-income people pay premiums and changing Medicare to encourage payment for quality care instead of sheer volume of services.

Hasn't Nelson stated that he wants the bribe removed from the final bill though? Too much backlash, I'd guess.
And saying "big, wet, slobbery kiss" is being classy about it. I do not have such class.
For any maintaining the delusion that the Senate will now pass a better Bill:
"I applaud the U.S. Senate for dropping the public option from their version of the health care bill, but I remain opposed to the legislation because it will undermine the progress we have made in Massachusetts with our own reforms. With 98 percent of our citizens covered, Massachusetts will essentially be subsidizing coverage expansions in other states through higher taxes and fees. This will cost Massachusetts jobs and make it harder on individuals and businesses that are struggling to make ends meet in the current recession."
Maybe people should just mail photos of people killed by poor healthcare coveradge to "Democrats" who aren't helping...?

"We'll die. We fight and we die, that's how it goes."
"Then we die gloriously!"

Obama should have copied FDR. Put people to work first-->supplying good paying jobs for Road and Bridge projects--Our infrastructure is dilapidated and could use the updating.
Then He could have pushed through a large social program easily.

The Democratic Party lacks the will to govern.
