219 to 212. Not one Republican vote for it.
And now, Green Eagle's comment on the Democrats' victory over the dignified, mature, fact-based campaign of the Republican party, aimed at protecting insurance company profits:
Yes, Republicans, you could have gotten a much better deal for your greedy businessmen last December, if you hadn't been such a bunch of lying, obstructionist pigs. As Thomas Friedman once observed, "suck on this one."
The Democratic party proved something tonight which is overwhelmingly important: Yes, we can defeat the greedy rich if we stick together. Now it's time for lots more victories like this.
And yes, Green Eagle had lots of fun making this graphic.
Update: Oh God. The bill hasn't been passed for five minutes, and the Republicans are up there screaming out their nauseating garbage about abortion. These people have not a shred of respect for our national institutions, and care about nothing but getting their own way. There are really no words in our language to express the depravity of this party.
