Health Care Bill Vote Results: Health Care Reform Bill Was Passed

Finally, after the rigorous debate on the proposed Health Care Bill by US President Obama, the said Health Care Bill was finally approved by the House of Representatives.

Republicans debate focuses on the the fact that this Health Care Bill will have a negative impact on the budget deficit of the US economy. With huge health care expenses to cover almost all Americans, the US government is about to spend at least $940 billion over the span of 10 years.

However, Democrats simply want to push through with the said Health Care Bill since it will give a lot of benefits to those uninsured individuals which includes lowered health care insurance costs, elimination of pre existing conditions, tax benefits, etc .

Republicans’ and Democrats’ long debate finally came into a conclusion when the final tally of the votes for the $940 billion proposed Health Care Bill end. The results of the votes were 219-212 in favor of the Democrats and so the much awaited Health Care Bill was finally passed in the House of Representatives.

In addition, The House of Representatives also voted 220-211 to support a “reconciliation” bill aimed to “fix” provisions in the Senate Health Care Bill that many House Democrats opposed but viewed as better than nothing.  After the debate on the House of Representatives, the Health Care Reform Bill will now go to the Senate for another debate which is expected to be held on Tuesday, after which, Obama would sign it to become a law.

The Health Care Reform Bill was a success for Obama. In his address in the White House, Obama reiterates that passing the Health Care Bill “proves government still works for people.”

  1. finally. sick of republicans with their own greasy self-interests feigning concern for the general public or the idiot republicans who rely on other republicans to shove the bullshit down their throats because they look like each other. Go Obama, good on you for standing up to those bitter racist fools for what you believe in.

  2. The passing of this bill will only hurt the american people and the american government, in the long run. first off, health care is not, no matter how much we like to think it is, a right – no more than a car or boat is a right. Its a good/ servis. Second, this nation is broke, we don’t have the money to pay for it, and thus, the passing of this bill fill further weeken us as a county. Finally, I’m not about haveing the same government that lied to the. American people about going to war to be in charge of my heal care. bill

  3. @concerned – Remember, three fingers are pointing back at you.

    It is sad when something that affects such a huge chunk of our economy and our lives can pass when a majority controlled House, Senate, and Presidency, by only drumming up barely more than 50% (50.3 of total 50.8 of voted)
    Yes/No
    DEMOCRATIC 219/34
    REPUBLICAN 0/178
    Total 219/212 431 of 435 voted.

    ….At 10:49 PM on Sunday night!!!???

    The constitution could only be unraveled in the dark of night, on a Sunday.

  4. It amazes me that people even bother to comment here with comments that they pass of a fact, when they haven’t even read the bill in question in it’s entirety. And then they make idiotic statements about unraveling constitutions when this issue has nothing to do with changing the constitution. Utter morons abound in the United States. I see them every day that I live here.

  5. I am hope full for the Nation, since this bill has past!
    Curtis Mayfield said it best, ” The black boy done wiped his eyes”.
    Rap music is played out, we are coming out of the mental and physical
    Conditions we have been in for centuries. We need something
    To do; why not run this country! These fat cat CEO’s retire and
    Collect all that pension. These hick town good’ol boys have all
    These acres of land that they have inherited! Now you want to tell
    Me that the Nation is broke! Just like the recession, mind over matter.
    He that hath a trade has an estate! Much props to President Obama for what he has done!
    For those of you who are still stuck in appartied; Negroes have been running this
    Country efficiently before President Obama; you better read up on that trans gender
    Want to be J. Edger Hoover! He was what white folks called passing! One drop rule.
    P.s. I know we are in a war on terror; but can somebody inform me; when did we capitulate
    Or when the war on the black man?
