Sen. Reid announces Senate bill including public option

Sen. Harry Reid announced today that the Senate health care reform bill will include an "opt out" public option.

According to this proposal, states will have one year after the health bill is fully implemented in 2013 to opt out of the public option part of the reform package.

Reid said the bill was to be sent to the Congressional Budget Office later in the day on Monday. After the cost analysis of the bill, a vote will take place. The Republicans could attempt a filibuster, but Democrat Charles Schumer, D-N.Y. said that his party is very close to having the 60 votes needed to overturn such a move. Last Thursday, Arlen Specter (D-Pa.) said that the Democrats have enough votes to block a filibuster, a move known as cloture.

As Democrats of the Democratic Party, we are joining together in seeking reform within the Democratic Party.

Many of our elected representatives within the Democratic Party are no longer following in the time-honored footsteps laid down by the founding fathers of our great Nation. More importantly, we as democrats see our elected representatives within the Democratic Party abandoning the values and principles as set forth within the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States.

Nonetheless, this is only the beginning of our problems as Democrats, for the current Democratic Party leadership is tainted by corruption and being taken over by Socialists. These Socialists are clearly a threat to everything we hold sacred in America, and they are gaining evermore control over our Democratic Party, our Nation, and the American people.

Despite this, we as Democrats can restore control of the Democratic Party back to the party members. All we need to do is cut off donations to the local, state, and national headquarters of the Democratic Party, and to make sure the donations are made directly to patriotic and honorable Democratic Party candidates that are not corrupt and/or Socialist.

So please help spread the message to everyone of our fellow Democrats. Also, don't forget to contact and request the Unions and other outside contributors to follow our lead as patriotic Americans.

Thank you, and God Bless America.
