I would hope that the public AND the House get time to read the final bill before they vote on it. This is just crazy world, where they are going to add amendments, vote on it and THEN read what's in the bill. There is no reason why this has to be rushed/ramrodded thru like TARP and the Stimulus.

If the people lay down and take this then there is no hope, there will be no stopping the expansion of government.
Their agenda cannot handle transparency... that alone should frighten every American, regardless of your political positions on this.

Yes, I too have the same hope. I guess that if I were a congressman (and thank god that I am not cuase I get too emotional about these things to think straight), I would have my staff provide me with a summary of each section that cuts right to the point - I would not read every single page, but I would trust and verify the things that are most important to me. I would not vote for the bill just becuase I was a democrat anymore than I would vote against it just because I was a Republician - that is just silly childish playground antics.

Hence the reason you don't know that abortions will be and already are funded by taxpayer dollars.

Whachu talking bout Willis?
Pelosi unveiled the House version of the bill several days ago.
You can download it and read it here (warning 1990 pages big pdf).
What they are referring to is the final version being posted, which is still being negotiated. Is that really enough of a reason to bash her? Of coarse it is, if you are a right wing extremist.
Give them an inch and they want a mile.

Sounds like two lawyers propagandizing on FOX news.
In other words, it's....FOX news.
