House Passes Health Care Reform Bill

I just found out my (democrat!) congressman voted no. What a disappointment in an otherwise great night. His and my senators' voicemails were full, so I'll be calling/emailing them later. Both of my senators are republicans, so I have a better chance of getting struck by lightning after winning the lottery in a leap year than having them vote for something I support, but everyone's voice should be heard. #healthcarereform
