AMAZING...SIMPLY AMAZING, BUT TYPICAL OF THE SCARELEADING THAT THE REPUBS AND RIGHTWING EXTREMISTS LOVE TO DO. CHUCK NORRIS IS WASHED UP AS AN ACTOR AND PROBABLY ISN'T SELLING MANY OF THOSE EXERCISERS HE TOUTS IN INFOMERCIALS. BUT HE GETS LOTS OF ATTENTION NOW AS A RIGHTWING EXTREMIST.

HOWEVER, I WONDER WHAT THEIR NEXT SCREECH WILL BE....WHEN THEY READ THIS:.

SENATE DEMS CLOSE IN ON HEALTH CARE REFORM

Senate Democrats made a big step toward comprehensive health care reform Wednesday night as Sen. Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) unveiled a bill that merges the two plans that passed the health and finance committees.

With the House having already passed its own bill, Congress is now closer to achieving health care reform than it has ever been in the six decades that Democrats have pursued it.

"We're now down to the week we've been waiting for for a long time," said Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) after emerging from a meeting of Senate Democrats.

Democratic leadership expressed confidence that the votes would be there by Saturday for a motion to proceed to a floor debate on the bill. Three Democratic senators -- Ben Nelson of Nebraska, Mary Landrieu of Louisiana, and Blanche Lincoln of Arkansas -- have yet to commit to vote for the motion to proceed.

During the meeting, the fence-sitting members spoke to the caucus, but didn't commit one way or another on the motion to proceed, said one Democratic senator who spoke not for attribution.

The bill presented by Reid is stronger than pundits ever thought possible in the summer months, when centrist and conservative Democrats worked to kill a public health insurance option. A loud round of applause could be heard toward the end of the meeting -- unusual for Senate gatherings.

Nice that the Senate dems were able to cut the filibuster crap out. Now there can be some serious debate.

YES! I only hope it's not window dressing, though, and that they're moving forward on this. I can't think of anything that would be better for America than health care reform unless it was an actual ending to the Afghan and Iraq wars.

I saw a car the other day, sporting a bumbersticker that said "Government-run health care makes me sick." I passed the vehicle and glanced over to see what kind of person was driving. It was an old lady, with a hat crunched down around her ears! I laughed, thinking she was probably on Medicare! :roll:
