    Thanks alot US Senate. I work at UPS mainly for the benefits, due to my being an independent contractor during my day job. I really appreciate the Senate considering me as part of the elite due to my Cadillac Health Plan. I guess because I work 2 jobs I am part of the elite America.

    Finally, the Teamsters have spoken up and say this plan is crap. I never thought I would see the day that the Teamsters would go against the Dems. We will see if they play hardball.

    Obama hater or lover, I do not care. It is Congress who controls everything at the end of the day and look at what we have gotten.

    Don't worry. Some of the Democrats voted yes last night in order to speed up the process but said they won't vote for the final bill if it includes the public "option." I think common sense will prevail in the end. Its clear that the majority of the general public is against this whole socialist healthcare plan.

    Ditto same boat as you 2 jobs benefits from UPS . Probably will be taxed for our bennies if it passes.
    Also these guys do not listen to anybody. The senate didn't carry language from the house bill specifically the Stupak-Pitts ammendment.
    I think we should we should put those two snots Harry and Nancy in the unload doing a whole feeder of copy paper boxes. They would propably get their freinds the undocumented immigrants to do it for them.

    70,000=cadillac? I thought u where rich after 250K?
    I tellya politicians are so disconnected from reality it aint even funny.
    250K should equal cadillac.
    Not 70K. 2 part-time jobs can =70K

    Majority may be against it, but those that actually vote on this bill are a selective minority.

    And they will dig their own graves by voting for this bill. They'll destroy healthcare for the majority but at least we'll pretty much be guaranteed that those vermin will be getting pink slips when its election time.

    I really dont get it. I rue the day I ever started paying attention to what is going on. I felt much better when I was clueless. Why cant they expand the roles for people who dont have care and need it, and leave the rest of us the hell ALONE?

    No tort reform either. They need to round up all the lawyers and put them in the unload for $8.50 per hour.Instead of frivolous law suits,it would solve everything: premiums would go down.ups stock would go up because the influx of cheap next to worthless labor,and the part time sups would have a whole new group of workers to badger and over supervise.
