Even though some of the very best ideas in the present Health Care Bill Signed into Law today were from Republicans from the Nixon and Reagon and Bush Administrations, since not one Republican in the end voted for this Bill the Republican Party is likely to be the Party of "No!" for 2 to 4 years or more. Though the individual Republicans that greatly contributed to a workable bill might take credit among themselves and their famlies and friends this does not help the Republican party at large and likely will harm it in the years to come.
Even the states trying to sue the federal government regarding the implementation of the Health Care Bill likely will lose( the likelyhood being about 95% that they will lose from previous precendents) it will set up a very dangerous Federal Rights and States Rights conflict which never bodes well for the happiness of the people in general. (look at the civil war for an example).
Also, Obama being not only the President but an actual legal scholar(he was the first black president of the Harvard Law Review) knows he likely will win in the end as well because of legal precedents. However, the wounds created by unrealistically suing the government might be pretty difficult to overcome in some states. I think it is awful that uneducated people are being lied to in thinking that they can actually get this bill overturned. Like I said it is about a 5% chance of overturning the bill. And so in the end we have another Social Security, Medicare type of Bill in the Healthcare Bill signed into law today. It's not perfect but it behooves us all to make it better and to refine it as citizens and lawmakers nationwide so it is actually useful to us. Fighting it is only going to in the end be a complete waste of money for all attempting it. Being pragmatic is one of the real keys to the beneficial survival of us all.
