What brought that on? this. Original posting here.

Another example of this guy's lunacy here.

The final vote on HR 3590 was 219 to 210, with 2 Republicans not voting.

Now, we move on to the reconciliation bit.

Edited to add that a human being just announced that the final vote was 219 to 212, so the C-SPAN graphics were wrong about those last two votes.

My mistake, they're on to the Motion to Recommit (MTR). The reconciliation will come later.

The MTR is already failing, 129-159. But there's some 13 more minutes left to vote.

The MTR has already failed, 187-221, but they've got to finish the 15-minute vote, anyway.

Interestingly, fewer Democrats have voted for the MTR than voted against HR 3590. If they didn't want the bill to pass, why would they not vote for the MTR? Odd.

Pelosi just announced that HR 4872 passed, 220-211.

Which means that one Democrat who didn't want the health-care reform bill to pass at all at least wanted the House fixes implemented since it did pass. Or, he/she just screwed up when voting.

Not a single GOP Member of the House voted for this historic act. History, and, I believe in future elections, the people of the United States, will remember this simple fact.

Ha, guess this means the big-o bag of hot gas Limbaugh will be moving to Costa Rica. (I wish.)

"We are all connected; to each other biologically, to the earth chemically, to the rest of the universe atomically."

"So you're made of detritus [from exploded stars]. Get over it. Or better yet, celebrate it. After all, what nobler thought can one cherish than that the universe lives within us all?"
-Neil DeGrasse Tyson
