Too little, too late. EVERYTHING “President” Muhammad Al-Obama DOES is illegal.

The Obamascam death spiral continues. Yeah, the Senate will blow it off but it keeps the Kenyan’s Marxist commie debacle in the news.

WHY are the Republicans bailing this guy out?

Let these people do without their health care. Let Obama wallow in his own stew.

The Republicans should just pass a bill stating that the official bird of the US is Obama giving us the finger.

Rep. Jim McDermott (D., Wash.) said “I haven’t seen this much panic on the [House] floor since 9/11; in response to the House Republican proposal allowing insurers to offer healthcare plans scheduled to be cancelled under Obamacare Friday morning:

JIM MCDERMOTT: Mr. Speaker, my mother used to say, patience is a virtue. I haven’t seen so much panic on this floor since 9/11.

Since Upton sponsored it, I’d like to add an amendment: If you like your light bulb, you can keep it.

Many of these people who are not whining about losing their health insurance, are the idiots who voted to put the moron into office.

As say, “Enjoy people!” This is part of the change you voted for.

I didn’t think the Upton bill had a time limit and would also allow anyone to purchase the plans, not just those that were cancelled.

I think this is being confused with Landrieu’s bill.

Actually the Senate won’t blow it off. They have their own plan for this. Reid will throw out Upton’s bill and substitute the Senate version which the House will then be pressured to approve. All this does is pull the Dems’ butts out of the fire until after the elections. Why why why do we do these stupid things?

I don’t think they’re trying to save obama. They want to get him and the rats on the record legislatively. Let the rats vote against it. Let obama veto it.

Read the article....Obama vowed to veto it...this is basically a bill that will hasten the overall demise of the entire law, and the administration knows it. FInally the GOP is playing smart— this bill would hasten the destruction of Obamacare, puts Obama on record as vetoing a keep your plan fix, and drives a wedge between redstate-bluestate democrats and the president...More of this please.

The Upton bill just passed the House and had quite a few Democrats included.
