Democrats confident; Republicans critical as test vote nears on Senate health care bill


It just sickens me to death that we are run by one party without one lick of respect for those of us who do not want this POS bill.  Shame on them.  Some Christmas present, hunh?

WASHINGTON (AP) — Senate Democrats confidently advanced health care legislation Sunday toward a make-or-break test vote in a push for Christmas-week passage. Republicans vowed to resist what they appeared unable to stop.

In the run-up to the vote, the escalation in rhetoric was remarkable on both sides of an issue that has divided the two political parties for months.

“This process is not legislation. This process is corruption,” said Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., referring to the last-minute flurry of dealmaking that enabled Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., and the White House to lock in the 60 votes needed to approve the legislation.
