My representative and senator voted for it, so I'll support them in November!

Unfortunately my Rep. didn't, but my Seantor did! To think...someday I may be able to go to the doctor and NOT worry about my insurance company trying to get rid of me if the doctor finds something wrong!

I was very relieved to see mine did. Hopefully this link works:

Its safe to say in Colorado if your representative is a Democrat they voted for the bill if your representative is a republican they voted against it.

Michael Bennet, the wealthy political appointee that took Ken Salazar's seat when he was picked to join the Obama cabal, voted for it. He wants to be elected in his own right this November. Not if I can help it.

Remember Prohibition? Remember what the people did when the full implications of it's intrusive and counterproductive nature became apparent? When the real and intrusive implications of this tax measure become apparent, I think we might see the same. When people see money being taken from their paychecks just months from now, with no delivery of any sorts of benefits for four years, the real nature of this (a tax measure, a money grab) will be plainly apparent. Just in time for the November elections, too.

In the meantime, in order to preserve my own standard of living, every dollar I have to spend as a result of such government money grabs will be offset by a dollar that I currently spend on charitable giving.

Colorado Springs always votes republican so this would not have changed anything. In the end the break up will always be what it has been between the different cities in the state with the trend going towards the democrats.

Thank you 'choosing78'. I really appreciate someone helping out so we can see and make our own choices.

Too bad some members feet a need to defend certain politicians and their votes.

Does anyone have a link to 'Local Politicians' position on the healthcare bill?
