Initially, there were not enough supporters to pass the bill, thus requiring its proponents to negotiate with a group of pro-life Democrats, led by Congressman Bart Stupak. The group found the possibility of federal funding for abortion was substantive enough to cause their opposition to the bill. Instead of requesting inclusion of additional language specific to their abortion concerns in the bill, President Obama issued Executive Order 13535, reaffirming the principles in the Hyde Amendment. This concession won the support of Stupak and members of his group and assured passage of the bill.[177] Various health policy experts urged the House to pass the Senate version of the bill as well.[178]

The House passed the bill with a vote of 219 to 212 on March 21, 2010, with 34 Democrats and all 178 Republicans voting against it.[179] The following day, Republicans introduced legislation to repeal the bill.[180] Obama signed the original bill into law on March 23, 2010.[181]

The House voted 219 to 212 to approve the measure, with every Republican voting no.

TiredOfTax, ok now you're saying the Senators, including Republicans, were bribed into voting for the healthcare act and that the Senator from New York was witnessed handing out those bribes on the floor. You've lost it.

Why yes RS the republicans that voted for Obamacare also did not read the bill. It was not the healthcare that they gave their votes for, it was what (the bribe) they GOT FOR THE VOTE that they looked over very carefully! Schumer was on the ground floor passing out the gifts to get the votes, it was the largest giveaway of taxpayer money in the history of the USA!

TiredOfTax, did the Republicans who voted for it read it also not read it? Or did only the Dems who voted for it not read it?

Has to make a person wonder who read all 20,000 pages.

Think about that in this healthcare bill “there are nearly 20,000 pages — with many more to come.”

Even those who fully support the new health care laws have to be asking themselves right now “How the heck can we expect doctors, hospitals, insurance companies, pharmacies, pharmaceutical companies, medical equipment suppliers, and anyone else connected with American medicine, to figure out their rights and responsibilities under this new law?”

Even if each of these entities hires a costly team of lawyers to try to figure out what to do (and what not to do), you just know that the only ones who are going to make out like bandits are the trial lawyers, who will sue over every infraction no matter how small, and federal agencies, which will have full employment for the next fifty or more years. There will be fraud... you can bet the last borrowed dollar on that!

usedto - I can't disagree with that post. It is your opinion, even though the posts you refer to are usually not "the rambling hatred spewing forth". It is usually your blind defense of pres Barry and his gang that ruffles the feathers of Constitutional Conservatives. But you are absolutely right in that people disagree with posts based on the author and not the content. Even you and swizzer sometimes show a small bit in a post that I can agree with but, there is too much on the other side -so many times you get a no from me. Not an agree or a disagree.

I think that people just click disagree whenever they see a post by TOT, drugs, Mr. Bob, or Taxtired just because they are sick of their rantings and just click disagree when they see there names without reading the rambling hatred spewing forth, anyone agree? I'll get 4 disagrees from the aforementioned

TiredOfTax, did you think there wouldn't be an application to this just like any other benefit has? And it's a one-time application unless there are any changes to the family status or yourself (obviously).

And the 'scrutiny' is like ANY other application for ANY government benefit. It helps reduce fraud and misuse of funds.

JEERS Again to OBAMACARE! WASHINGTON (AP) — Applying for benefits under President Barack Obama's health care overhaul could be as daunting as doing your taxes. The government's draft application is now on the Internet. It runs 15 pages for a three-person family. The online version has 21 steps, some with added questions. At least three major federal agencies, including the IRS, will scrutinize your application. That's just the first part of the process, which lets you know if you qualify for financial help.

JEERS to the first attempt at a budget is 4 years!! The first budget from Senate Democrats in four years includes nearly $1 trillion in new taxes but would not balance the budget. The blueprint unveiled by Senate Budget Committee Chairwoman Patty Murray (D-Wash.) on Tuesday to her Democratic colleagues would also turn off the next nine years of the sequester and replace those spending cuts with a 50-50 mix of tax increases and spending cuts.

I will tell you what, you start telling us anything at all that Obama has totally messed up and not sheepishly follow and defend every single democrat issue and I will back off my duties to show how totally wrong our president and fellow democrats are on every single topic. OK?

TiredOfTax, yes, it's for Cheers and Jeers... of the states topics. Not for ones you simply want to make up or add here.

I've yet to read any comment where you don't just go ahead and turn it into an Obama-filled diatribe.

This editorial is for cheers and jeers. I would say that everyone that voted in the current administration at state and federal levels belong in the jeers... and the ones that just do not get that just as yourself belong here on the JEERS even more!

TiredOfTax, what does GE, the President, or taxes have anything to do with this post?

Oh right, they don't.

Just another hijacked comment threat brought to you by TiredOfTax.

TiredOfTax, NY has always been a pretty safe 'blue' state for as long as recent memory tells me.

And you're not a 'C' or a 'R'. I would put you in 'E': Extremist Party.

Remember GE got a tax vacation from Obama? Now they have a way to avoid even more... Some of the largest companies in the U.S. greatly boosted their tax-avoiding cash stockpiles abroad last year, according to recent surveys of company filings from the Securities and Exchange Commission.

For example, the Jedi master of avoiding U.S. taxation, General Electric Company (NYSE:GE), increased its tax-free cash accumulation to $108 billion, up from an estimated $94 billion in 2010. Microsoft Corporation (Nasdaq:MSFT) increased its stockpile to $61 billion, up 36 percent from 2011 and up from $30 billion in 2010. Apple Inc. (Nasdaq:AAPL) raised its ante to $40 billion, up 73 percent from 2011.

RS, Please explain how I can be red in a blue state without being a republican or conservative? And now I do not even know what to call you without upsetting you... really a bummer!
