Health Care Reform Bill

The House is expected to vote sometime today on President Obama's Health Care Reform Bill. The President and his staff have been busy working the phones to garner support and guarantee a positive outcome for this $1.2 trillion bill. The President is expected to make a visit today to the house to increase pressure on the wavering house members.

The republicans are expecting to bring in 177 votes against the bill and democrats need to bring in 218 votes out of the possible 258 dems in order to secure a victory.

At midnight on Friday night there was an agreement reached to insert tougher legislation into the bill regarding abortion despite fervent opposition by the pro-choice liberals.

Some are saying that last Tuesday's vote that ousted 2 democratic governors suggests that people care far more about jobs than about growing the size of government. What say you voters?
