    Default GOP-led House votes to repeal health care law

    I just wonder how many newbe's actually read what was in the health care bill before voting against it. Did they even know what they were voting against or were they blindly following the party wishes?

    WASHINGTON The Republican-controlled House has voted to repeal the nation's year-old health care law, clearing the way for the second phase of the "repeal and replace" promise that victorious Republicans made to the voters last fall.
    The repeal, which was passed by a vote of 245 to 189, has little or no chance of passing the Senate, where Democratic supporters of the law have the majority. And Obama has vowed to veto it if it reaches his desk.

    What happened to your 'history is made' thread RK? I was just about to reply. Guess you realized it wasn't history, but just a footnote.

    I liked the part in your link about congress giving up their own socialized HC.

    Here is another excert from the link.

    According to a new NBC/Wall Street Journal poll, the American public is divided on both the repeal effort and the health care law. Forty-six percent oppose the GOP's attempt to repeal the law, while 45 percent support the effort. Meanwhile, 39 percent believe the health plan Obama signed into law last March is a good idea, while another 39 percent think it's not.

    I just cannot see where a majority of Americans want the health care bill repealed as the Republicans claim. I think they are just jealous that the D's came upwith and passed a health care bill and it will make the R's look bad.

    Both Christianity and Islam aren't very tolerent of much diviation. It's thier way or no way. A spiritual concept that could only come from the imagination of ancient man. In contrast, Hindus and Buddhist do not consider thier spirituality based on a god but, rather a spiritual treacher. Same as the Rabbi Jesus was at his time, a spiritual taecher. But, man in our attempt to explain our being could only comprehend a "god".

    When one analysis the concept of "absolutism in belief" in conjuntion wth the limited scope of ancient man, we see the first organized attempt at controlling the masses. Religion has always been about power. Afterall, it is the oldest form of politicis.

    Franco, are you on the right thread with this post

    I expect many if not all of the newbes read it. It was what got many of them elected, a desire by the American people to repeal bad law.

    Does anyone here on this forum understand all the changes the new health care law implements? I know I sure don't. Do you think all the folks polled about the law understand it? I doubt it. The sad thing is that there is this huge discussion in the public domain about something that most of us are completely or at least partially ignorant about. We are expected to trust that those on "our side" are representing it to us accurately. Sorry, but I don't trust the talking heads on my side any more than those on the other side.
