Watch out! Dat evil health-care-for-all be on its way

I’ve had a lot of home chores today, so CSpan’s been on the teevee pretty much all day. The House has been live since this morning because today is the moment; a health care bill will pass the House tonight. The speeches were perfunctory hands clappingthis morning and afternoon, but about 7pm the drama began to build as the leadership started hanging around and the stars of both parties stepped up to make speeches. Each hour there are more people in the chamber, and as the hours go on it appears to be filling up.

Right now, Rep. Boehner is on the floor talking about the evils of the upcoming cap and trade climate legislation. And jobs. And taxes. Now this is one of the penultimate speeches; Boehner is the top Republican in the House. So what’s he doing talking about other issues? I take it to mean they’re moving on. I take it to mean they know they’ve lost the debate.

Folding laundry while witnessing history. This is really quite grand.

  1. I watched the final vote on CSPAN, and it was great to hear the cheers as they reached the necessary 218 votes. Even a Republican voted for it! I’m nervous to see what happens in the Senate, but I’m glad that the House battle is done. šŸ™‚
