It's all in the numbers

The health care reform bill will be voted on sometime this evening in Washington, D.C. and with it's passage will give health care to some 32 million Americans who currently are without coverage.
216 votes are needed in the House of Representatives and passage of the bill will happen according to Steny Hoyer (Democrat- 5th District of Maryland), the House Majority leader.
It's all in the numbers and the United States of America is on the brink of history making legislation with this bill's passage.
If (and it's an increasingly likelihood) the HCR bill passes the Congress and President Barack Obama signs it into law, will the Republicans continue to run their campaign message for the 2010 mid-term elections to "repeal" the bill?
I say bring it on if it comes to that.
The GOP will be cutting it's own collective throat if they actually try that strategy.
The bill is worth passing and once things start to take shape and it gets tweaked over time, people will be satisfied with the new health care reform.
Don't be afraid America... just as FDR once said ... "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself."
Stay tuned.
