It’s like Christmas, New Year’s and Easter all rolled into one.  The Health Care Reform bill passed the House last night by a vote of 219 to 212.  Though not a single Republican voted for the bill, they will make a big deal of decrying the partisan nature of the final vote, it contained 161 Republican amendments.

Today is one day I wish I had a television so I could see unedited by the intertoobs how the news programs are reporting this morning and who they’re interviewing.

According to what I was told by Massachusetts Senator John Kerry’s office. the Senate is expected to vote on the reconciliation bill later this week.  But it’s not going to be easy.  Republicans plan to do everything they can to prevent Americans from having the protection of law from the depredations of the for-profit health care industry.

If there was ever a time to call your senators, it’s now.  Call and let them know you want them to do the right thing — get the reconciliation bill to the floor for a final vote and then vote aye.
