Senate Finance Committee Vote : 14:9

As I watched the vote on C-Span, for the first time since Nov 4 of last year, I felt chills as the result of government action. We are still a ways from reform passing and there are clearly many holes in the bill voted on today, but to hear Kerry, Schumer, Nelson and rest vote "Yes" nearly brought tears to my eyes. If they can now mold the bill with the House bill to include a public option, this could be one of the most important pieces of legislation passed in the past 100 years.

When we put aside the constant bickering and the non-existent positions from the right, this could ultimately be an amazing time for our country.
