Health care reform is in the home stretch, but the fools running the Republican Party and their corporate sponsors are throwing every desperate trick in the book (and some that aren't in the book yet) to try to hold it off.
Once the House acts--which could come as early as next week--it's "game over" for the opposition.

The GOP will be down to hours of obstruction time left--not years.

I am working to help get the facts out in online postings and other messages this week. You can too. Please check out the details at http://my.barackobama.com/DayOne
