Health Care Reform passed out of the House, now at the steps of the Senate

President Obama twittered, "This is history."

Passed 220-215 in the Democrats favor.

Now this bill is at the steps of the Senate. Harry Reid the ball is in your court and Democratic Senators make sure you put a lot of oil on the steel for your spine because you will need it. America is watching you like a hawk and you are on NOTICE. Reid bring this bill home across the finish line, so we can move on.

And for memory sake, how a bill becomes a LAW. Many need to watch this because too many do not understand the process.

UPDATE: President Obama's statement on this monumental passage from the House of Representatives:

"Tonight, in an historic vote, the House of Representatives passed a bill that would finally make real the promise of quality, affordable health care for the American people.

The Affordable Health Care for America Act is a piece of legislation that will provide stability and security for Americans who have insurance; quality affordable options for those who don’t; and bring down the cost of health care for families, businesses, and the government while strengthening the financial health of Medicare. And it is legislation that is fully paid for and will reduce our long-term federal deficit.

Thanks to the hard work of the House, we are just two steps away from achieving health insurance reform in America. Now the United States Senate must follow suit and pass its version of the legislation. I am absolutely confident it will, and I look forward to signing comprehensive health insurance reform into law by the end of the year."
