Democrats have their 60 votes for health care deform

My quiet, pleasant evening was just interrupted by this headline on MSNBC:
"Democrats have 60 votes to advance health care bill".

I literally felt my heart stop and my breath caught in my throat. This can't be happening. What happened to Liberman and the others who said they weren't going to vote for this? At least there were no Olympia Snowe's in this bunch... but it didn't seem to matter much.

I just want to cry and scream. Haven't they been listening to us? What about the tea parties and the letter-writing? Was it all for nothing? And all because of this community-apologizer-in-chief wants things to be "fair" for everyone, while he jokes with servicemen that they are only a "photo-op". Have you heard- universal healthcare is now called "community healthcare". Just sounds like something disgusting to me, like "community toilet" or something. But whatever you want to call it, I DON'T WANT IT!!!!!!!!!!!

I don't want you to tell me when I can or cannot get a mammogram, if I and my doctor decide I need one. It's none of the government's business. It's MY health care and MY responsibility. I've worked very hard to provide myself with care because my health is high on my priority list. Please don't take something away for me to give it to someone who didn't have it as high in their priorities. I love the United States of America - we're the best country out there. I don't want to be Europe or be like them. If I did, I'd be living in Europe, not here. I am not sorry for being an American, and in fact, I'm proud of it. I had no choice in where I was born, but I am glad that it was here and if I had a choice, I'd choose the USA all over again. I am not sorry about being an American-please don't apologize for me. I do not want to see my great nation flushed down the community toilet.

Excellent post. Your reaction was much the same as mine. I have to say, too, that I am becoming increasingly aggravated with the whole "Europe has it" crap. America is the best nation in the world, and we are that because we are NOT and do NOT want to be Europe. Europe is fine for what it is, but it's not America. I am sick to death of libs citing Europe as if that was something to strive for. Geez, how many times have we saved their collective arses? How many times have we had to run to the rescue with our military or our money? Too many to count. What have they done for us? Not a damn thing. Well, okay, I'm ranting here, I know they've done a lot, especially Britain, but you know what I'm saying. It's ridiculous to aspire to be LESS than you are. Their socialized medicine is exactly what we do not want, WE have the best healthcare, best doctors, best treatments in the world. Why why why would we trade that in to be like them? It makes zero sense to me.

As for Lieberman and the other idiots who voted for cloture, they obviously think we're too stupid to understand that their votes essentially passed this travesty and forced it down our throats. They only need 51 now, and they'll get that. I'm fuming mad and not a little insulted.

I know, I am so upset. Congrats! We are going to have healthcare system like the countries that everyone runs from! yay! I am so disgusted with our culture. I pay for my healthcare and do without nice things yet now we are all forced to pay more money for people who CHOOSE not to get their care? Yuck. My only question, why in the world where you watching MSNBC? I only go with Fox or ABC, everything else makes my head explode.

Fuzzy: No worries about the rant; I understand far too well.
I don't think the liberals care is we have less - they are only looking for ways to have more control.

Hannityinaskirt: Haha I was checking my hotmail account through and the headline popped up. They are usually one of the first to come through with breaking news. I see what they have to say and then go onto other sources to read more about it. I usually read Newsmax, but they are alittle slow in getting breaking news up, but granted, they are based on a magazine.
