The people say go forward.

What are Democrats in the house waiting for, again?  Passing the Senate health care reform bill is morally right, popular, and political gold.  Everybody knows it’s a significant step forward in coverage and patient safety, especially the Republicans trying to prevent it from happening.

How’s everybody doing tonight?  My name is Henry Whistler and it’s time to party.  And I’m proud to join the ultimate blog for Iowans who like to party.  I’ve butted heads with both Mike and JB, literally, because life in small town Iowa is so boring people have nothing else to do but hit each other.  Talking about the weather gets old.

    Polls actually show the Senate bill is very unpopular.

    The Senate should fix the House bill first. Then the House bill can pass the Senate bill and the fixes, sending both to Obama’s desk.

    The excise tax would be a disastrous policy–terrible politics as well.

    Well, the Senate bill is unpopular because people on the left feel it’s too compromised, and I’d agree. But it’s not too compromised to fix, and that’s why the Senate needs to hurry up and draft a reconciliation bill as you said.
