The bill has passed, the President will sign it tomorrow. There are many benefits in the new law, despite no single payer or public option provisions.
The right wing mob response:
1) Protesters outside the Capital yelling the worst racial and sexual invectives, and some protesters even spit at members of Congress;
2) Pledges from republicans to repeal, stall, and eviscerate the bill’s provisions; and
3) republican governors and state attorneys general pledging to sue and stall state requirements to effect the bill’s provisions.
And the likes of John McSenile telling the American people how they will vote in November.
Ted Kennedy may be smiling in his grave, but Thomas Jefferson is sick to his stomach.
