It'll pass. Those holdouts are simply trying to up the bidding by the doctors and hospitals on their coming campaign contributions. One good thing about campaign contributions/bribes is that they work! Sure, some of them say "No" now, but wait until the fanned out 100 dollar bills are displayed, and those votes will become "Yes" votes. Remember, after all, politicians are only human, like the rest of us. Maybe more so.

Tea Party has become the home for the wicked who collaborate with the demons of despair and humiliation, the dark angels of bigotry and hate, and the arch-enemies of justice and equality. Two words have become anathema to them: compromise and compassion.
Before our time on earth is done, let us rid our government of this pestilence.
