It's not a very good bill anymore but it passed. I'm choosing to look at the glass as half full at least until after Christmas. :0)

@Bi-Polar Bear,
I'm hoping it will be amended into a good bill.

If nothing else, I love it that the Conservatives are pissed off. After 8 years of Bush they deserve to experience some of what we went through. I assume they are all hunkered down in their bunkers, jerking off to a picture of Ann Coulter, and waiting for The Four Horsemen of Apocalypse to show up.

@dlowan,
It's still in the rough - not yet law. I'm hoping now that they will need fewer votes to tweak it and put back some of the things they took out to bribe the more greedy whores, oops! I mean Senators, who only wanted pork concessions for their state.

Polish this turd as much as you want, get it as shinny as you can.
Work on it for months and it's still just a big stinking turd.
Nothing to be proud of.

@Bi-Polar Bear,
I agree that at least the issue is really on the table now. My mother was telling me last night about all the outrage when Medicare was first put forth and how everyone was yelling "we are collapsing into socialism" - now Republicans are trying to act like they are the great protectors of Medicare. Maybe in another 40 years Repubicans will be defending cuts to a long established public option. Stranger things have happened.

So what can happen in reconciliation?

It seems that the bill needs to pretty much stay the way it is now in order to pass the Senate.

That's going to piss the House off because there is no Public Option in the Senate bill.

So more amendments will be filed saying things like "California does not have to pay for Medicaid anymore" or "Texas is excluded from this legislation" which can only succeed in making the bill EVEN WORSE.

Does the bill that comes out of reconciliation only need 50+1 votes in the Senate? Or will they need a super-majority to vote for cloture?

In general, I'm hapy about it, although it could still be great or terrible depending on details. The thing I'm happiest about is that, one way or another, every American would have health insurance. It should be remembered, though, that the money to make all these improvements has to come from somewhere, whether from reducing other programs or from soaking rich people, some of whom made their fortunes honorably.
