Levin of MI voted against this? I say that I have voted for him in every election that I can remember and I am now going to either not vote at all, something I have done at EVERY opportunity since I was 18, or work for the republican who next runs against him, because no liberal in MI has the balls to take him on.

The admisistration has made some kind of a deal with Big Pharma that they will limit their opposition to the health care bill in exchange for getting this killed.

I don't think so. How can they be performing an act designed to give pleasure when they give so much pain?
