The conservatives are in deep mourning over the passage of the healthcare reform bill. I have some empathy (not sympathy) for how bad they feel, considering how many things the Bush administration did (starting with the bombing of Iraq civilians) made me sick to my stomach.

And like most liberals, I'm well aware of the bill's many weaknesses. But I know how craven politicians are, and I'm convinced they will react to constituent concerns. (Because they do like to keep their jobs.) That's why I predict the 2020 version of this bill will be a lot better than this one. Now the real fight begins.

In the meantime, here are some representative comments on Twitter:

The DEMS have brought shame on America Abort the DEMS NOW

PLEASE #killthebill for my 12 year old who wants 2b a doctor! With Obamacare she might choose 2b a vet instead!

Paul Ryan just gave the best speech of the night. The guy is a freaking rockstar

Re: pelosi... Is this bitch for real? I bet she groups herself with Lincoln, MLK, Jesus

healthcare is not a right Nazi Pelozi!!


And no, I don't thank @BarackObama. Except for RUINING my country.

We are selling our heritage for the lies and empty promises of a handful of radical liberals.

I have one word to describe this legislation "tyranny".

Monday take your money out of the banks

N. PigLosi looks like a "babbling idiot" who uses random Hand Gestures like a swinging monkey

Nancy milking the pre-existing conditions issue. Extend competition across state lines and watch pre existing conditions go away.

You are witnessing the death of the Democratic party

Good Job Nancy, Chairman Mao would be proud.


I'm not sympathetic to Pelosi's old guy in Michigan 2embarrassed 2ask his kids 4help. He doesn't mind stealing from mine!

March 21. Happy dependence day!

Listening to Pelosi live makes me want to puke. How could anybody of right mind believe a single word? Wicked witch.

This vote tonight is nothing short of a declaration of war by Dems & their freeloader base against responsible self-reliant Americans.
