It's just sad to see the Republicans cave and meander all over the place rather than to just stand firm, take a couple of licks, and fight back a little rather than to just cave and go along with the Democrats and then to top it off, Obama comesd out after the vote and kicks the Republicans between their legs three or four times. What we are doing to our kids and grandkids is just wrong and really a slippery slope for the future.

How bad do some House Republicans think the Senate bill is? Ohio Rep. Steven LaTourette thinks the only way that number of Senate Republicans could have voted for the plan was if they were drunk:

"I think our sense, at least in the House, was that a number of the Republicans that voted for it must have been drunk, because it really was a number that wasn't reflective of where we thought some of these people were going to be on a bill like this," he said after emerging from a House GOP caucus meeting.
