    Senate Passes Healthcare reform bill

    http://www.cnn.com/2009/POLITICS/12/...are/index.html

    Washington (CNN) -- The Senate passed a $871 billion health care reform bill Thursday morning, handing President Obama a Christmas Eve victory on his top domestic priority.
    The bill passed in a 60-39 party line vote after months of heated partisan debate. Every member of the Democratic caucus backed the measure; every Republican opposed it.
    Should it become law, the measure would constitute the biggest expansion of federal health care guarantees since the enactment of Medicare and Medicaid more than four decades ago. It is expected to extend insurance coverage to 30 million additional Americans.

    Maybe Leichtenstein I dont believe they even offer insurance , they are the worlds largest producer of dentures so I guess you could say that you would have dental coverage.

    Weird, I found that out from the program, Top Gear.

    I don't think this plan will work. I could go on but why waste the ink......

    I hope it can be worked out. The U.S. is the only industrialized nation with no health care for all. It can help many people like me if it works.
