[Political Cartoons by Eric Allie ]
UPDATE: Eric Cantor on the House floor today:
Madam Speaker, Republicans have come to the floor today because we care about Americans’ health care. We just don't care for this bill. But still, the Majority seems committed to trying to muscle through a trillion dollar overhaul that will change health care for every man, woman, and child. Americans have made it very clear, they don't like this bill. They don't want the government in the decision making of their health care. They want to lower costs, and they don't want their government tax dollars going to fund abortion services. So why can't we start over, Madam Speaker? We ask again.”
There's been a year and a half nearly of debate over this and still more questions than answers. That's why we are hearing reports that the Majority will try and ram this through without a direct vote on the Senate bill, Madam Speaker. We should take an up-or-down vote on the Senate bill.
One can only hope that the destruction of Lord Obama's One Ring of Power is imminent....
Aragorn: Hold your ground, hold your ground. Sons of Gondor, of Rohan, my brothers. I see in your eyes the same fear that will take the heart of me. A day may come when the courage of men fails. When we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship, but it is not this day. An hour of wolves and shattered shields and when the age of men comes crashing down, but it is not this day. This day we fight. For all that you hold dear on this good Earth, I bid you, stand Men of the West. - from Return of the King (movie version)
