Damn. Obamacare was this close to being voted down thanks to… Harry Reid?:
At 7:16 a.m., the Senate passed on a 60-39 party line vote a sweeping health care bill that will tighten insurance regulations, provide insurance for 31 million more Americans and cost $871 billion over the next decade.
Clearly exhausted, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid mistakenly voted no before changing his vote to yes.
After realizing he’d voted “no,” Reid then took advantage of the opportunity and bribed himself into voting “yes.”
Barbara Boxer accidentally voted “Pat Buchanan” before also changing her vote to “yes.”
