Comfyshoes - I could not agree more. This health care bill should allow as much debate as possible and I feel that all bills should be available for the American public to see for at least a week.
If you are doing something that is legitimately for the good of the American people then you should be an open book and allow debate especially on something as important as healthcare.
Well, Harry Reid did not care because he along with the rest of congress and the President are exempt from this health care bill which is why they did not care if we did not want it since it was not going to affect them.
I will tell you that there was another Harry Reid cloture vote that was not successful. It was on the Dream Act.
The Dream Act was an amnesty bill that allowed children of illegal immigrants to gain citizenship if they went to college or agreed to serve in the military for two years.
This bill passed the House but was defeated in the Senate when it was called for a vote.
