Senate Love Fest: Health Care Reform Another Step Further

It would seem that Reid has the votes to get the proposed senate health care bill on the floor for debate. It would seem that Senators Blanche Lincoln (D-Arkansas) and Mary Landrieu (D-Louisiana) have softened their positions to vote to get this to the floor. It became a real love fest 

I wonder if Senator Landrieu's change of heart would have anything to do with the fact that she seems to have bigger things to worry about.

Senator Ben Nelson (D-Nebraska) of course was a hold out and didn't vote along. No love fest for him it would seem, but why did he go to chat with arch neo-con Senator Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) ?Would he be thinking of crossing the floor to be  a G.O.P.? Or is there some kind of strange deal going on here?

I really hope that health care reform becomes a reality over there. Let's hope they go forward.

Now, time for a cartoon.

Great cartoon :D

I've been watching the health care reform debate for some time now and the truth is some of the 'arguments' were nearly as bad as those in the cartoon.

I hope the right decision will be finally made and health care will become a right again in the US.

Take care,
