Senate committee passes health-care overhaul

One has to wonder if any of our elected cockroaches actually read the bill.

From USA Today:

WASHINGTON — A Senate health committee advanced a $600 billion overhaul of the nation’s health care system Wednesday, pushing President Obama’s top domestic priority past its farthest legislative milestone to date.

But the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee bill, which was approved on a 13-10, party line vote, could change significantly before Congress acts on health care. Lawmakers — who want to conduct floor votes on the bill before they recess in August — are working on two other versions of the legislation.

The Senate’s health committee was the first of five committees in Congress considering health care to pass a version of the legislation.

And we’re off!! Socialism here we come. Hold on to your hats folks, here comes more government cheese.

    I read today about a Senator being willing to lose his seat to vote for the health-insurance reform. “Integrity,” you might say, or “betrayal” (of his constituents). But I think this misses the point–meaning the role of the US Senate as a check on the House (and us).
