Tweak Obamacare says Reid

Reid Says Willing to 'Tweak' Obamacare
Wednesday, 03 Nov 2010 08:15 AM

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid Wednesday said he is willing to make changes to the landmark healthcare reform legislation passed earlier this year.

"If there's some tweaking we need to do with the healthcare bill, I'm ready for some tweaking," Reid, a Democrat, said in an interview on CNN, after Republicans captured the U.S. House of Representatives in Tuesday's midterm elections.

Republicans strengthened their ranks in the Senate, but Democrats maintained a majority in that chamber.

If the term "tweak" means they will take out the "you are forced by law to join/pay", then I'm all for this. The sad thing is I would probably be interested in this, especially if it means a lower bill, right now I'm not covered by any sort of health care insurance, but by golly, don't tell me I HAVE to join under penalty of law!

Canseco Wins

It would seem that Canseco has won district 23 in Texas, Fox news has called him the winner, and with 88% of the vote counted, Canseco has 50%, Ciro has 44%, the independents come in at less than 5% each. Ciro has yet to concede, I guess he wants to hang on to hope as long as he can. I'm going to bed, I suspect that when I log on to the internet tomorrow, Ciro will have condeded and Canseco will be the official winner.

I hope that Canseco follows through with what needs to be done now, the fair tax needs to be implemented, the border needs to be secured, Obamacare needs to be repealed and lots more needs to happen.

I am also happy to see all of those red states, especially the ones that used to be blue.
