Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi announced yesterday that she does not have the votes to pass the much-maligned healthcare bill.

There are certain things that, um, members just cannot support. So in its present form without any, uh, change, I don't think it's possible to pass the Senate bill in the House.

Did she say "change"?

When America elected its first black president in 2008, the people were promised Hope and Change. They were promised a government that would be less transparent and more for the people.

Yet, at a time when unemployment is at an all-time high and the economy continues to spiral out of control, the Democrats totally ignored the will of the people and decided to ram a $3 trillion health reform bill down the throats of Americans using bribery, deception and backdoor dealings.

In town hall meetings across the U.S. over the Summer, Democrats returned home to loud outbursts, protests and criticisms of Barack Obama's health care reform bill.

"This is not health reform, this is control, control over our lives," said one man at a town hall meeting in Iowa in August.

Faced with the prospect of an arrogant one-party government running the country, the people responded the only way they knew how: at the polls. On Tuesday, for the first time in over 30 years, the people of Massachusetts elected a Republican to fill a Democrat's seat in the Senate thus snatching away that critical 60th vote needed to pass a bill without threat of a GOP filibuster.

And just like that Obama's healthcare bill is dead.

    This bill was not meant to pass in the first place. It was designed to fail. Now they can say they tried but the republicans wouldn't let it be, but this was a joint effort by both parties. Theatrical propaganda for the sheeple.

    Go back to sleep if you're so tired. Perfect example of people not willing to face reality so instead you want to get drunk on gossip and entertainment.

    This really is a sick society we live in.

    Hmmm...

    This bill needs to go back to the drawing table...as most bills do when they're first crafted...

    But I for one am NEVER going to be happy living in a country where MILLONS of people do not have access to basic healthcare...and the MILLIONS of other people who DO have access to healthcare are strung up by the greed and avarice...

    Arrogance...I wish to GOD OBAMA WOULD ACT ARROGANT LIKE ALL OF THE REPUBLICAN PREDECSSORS!!! Their arrogance got the job done...of course, their job was to make sure folks like us stay broke and sick...but hey...it WORKED FOR THEM!!!

    Take a note from Auntie Obama...BE ARROGANT...FOR REAL!!!

    This is typical of most Americans. Gossip and entertainment are distractions.

    That's right and they have no idea that it's a real affliction they are suffering from.
