Just a short update tonight. I’ve heard a couple rumors that the House might start discussions over another health care bill, HR 676.
The bill originates back to January of 2007 but was re-introduced in January of this year. The bill was originally sponsored by Rep. Conyers (yes, the same Rep. Conyers who said you need two days and two attorneys, even though he is one, to understand HR 3200) and Rep Kucinich.
I figure it won’t hurt to read the bill, just in case. It will take me a few days to get my thoughts together on this one, and the possibility that the Democratic majority in the House may try to “compromise” by introducing tHR 676 as an alternative to HR 3200.
For tonight, I will leave you with another quote.
Always vote for principle, though you may vote alone,
and you may cherish the sweetest reflection that your vote is never lost.
John Quincy Adams
