Well, it looks like while I was sleeping the Republican Obstructionist POSs succeeded in forcing a second house vote. Over educating kids for college who might need financial help. Who knew that was controversial! :::eye roll:::

Today we continue in the journey to go where no live blogs have gone before...cutting through the insanity of Wingnuttia B.S.

Only today, its on a much grander scale! Its the Senate!! You think Members of the House of Representative are windbags, Senators are even more so. :)

Please feel free to mock.  Mocking is fun.

Please feel free to play Republican Talking Point Bingo. Here is a visual aid:

If you are at work, as I am (sssssssshhhhh, don't tell my boss! [although she probably wouldn't care]), you can Watch HERE on C-Span

Please don't post pictures and videos directly in your comments. They eat bandwidth.

Or you can play the Republican Healthcare Buzzwords Drinking Game! Drink when you hear any of the following:

  1. socialism
  1. government takeover
  1. flawed
  1. abortion
  1. unconstitutional
  1. rationing
  1. repeal
  1. rais(ing/es) taxes
  1. cut(s/ing) Medicare
  1. any variation of "kill grandma"

Feel free to add to the list!

And in honor of our illustrious Vice President Joe Biden's now infamous quote from the bill signing, and because I find this cartoon so SO FUNNY, here it is, with a poll

Joe Biden,health care,health care reform,cartoon

In comparison to the Main Health Care reform package, how much of a "big fucking deal" is the Reconciliation package?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
