Republican Murdering Obstructionists Lose Divisive Health Insurance Vote

Democrats win the historic but divisive vote, 60 to 39

With every member of the House and Senate firmly in the pocket of corporate interests, the Republican members of the Senate still failed to stop the passage of a long overdue federal health care bill.

Every year tens of thousands of us in the United States die simply because we don't have access to medical care. Most bankruptcies are caused by medical bills, with costs inflated from the insane pressure to feed ever increasing profit dollars to an ever decreasing number of C-Level executives, board members, and institutional investors.

Next stop - a divided Republican party will sink deeper into irrelevancy in upcoming elections as they face the fact that voters know, despite the onslaught of partisan bullshit from a complicit media, that these reforms are needed.

Republicans to pay at polls in 2010 for Health Care Obstructionism

A deeply divided Republican party will lose significant votes in 2010 with its role as opposition to meaningful health care reform in 2009.

Split between extremest right wing influences and mainstream party supporters, the schism can't be repaired to unite a Republican party that represents nothing but building a framework for the next election. Support for significant change in our health care system in America by a large majority is obscured by an obstructionist Republican minority in the House and Senate and a complicit media. As both lie and misdirect the public, saying that opposition to health care reform is overwhelming, they dig a deep political hole.

In the meantime, tens of thousands are being murdered by corporatists of every stripe yearly, in support of a failed health care system that serves only to support fat cat politicians, C-Level executives, board members, and institutional investors in ever-profitable health care corporations.

November 2010 will prove a watershed for non-presidential-year elections. The repercussions of a Congressional minority that only knows one word - "NO" - and a majority that finally comes to a realization that they won will bring as many voters to reject the Republican obstructionists and political terrorists as happened in 2008.
