This was a pretty funny moment from early this morning. I figured I’d share it with you all as a little Christmas present from me. The following video is a clip from the Senate’s Roll Call vote on the health care bill (H.R. 3590, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act). I wasn’t able to set the start time for the clip, so skip ahead to 25:30 (and if that’s not working, the video is also here: http://www.c-spanvideo.org/program/290899-1).
Apparently Mr. Reid was running on not quite enough sleep there.
The vote ended up being 60-39 (with all Democrats voting AYE, all of the Republicans voting NO, and Jim Bunning (R-KY) not voting).
While I personally would’ve voted against the bill, I don’t think this bill was all that bad considering other possibilities the Senate was looking at, but I really don’t feel like getting into the politics of the bill on Christmas Eve (I’ll save that for when the House and Senate come together to iron out a bill that both chambers agree on).
I just wanted to give everybody a little laugh, and wish everybody a very merry and safe Christmas!
God bless all of you and your families! If you celebrate Christmas, Merry Christmas! If you don’t, Happy Holidays!
I wish everybody a safe weekend.
