I just think it's hilarious that the Republicans knew that the Dems would vote no on every proposed amendment to the health care "fixes" (otherwise it would have to go back to the House), so they took advantage to force Dems to vote against a bunch of stuff that nobody in their right mind would vote against. Childish, but very funny! Now they can say that Democrats want child molesters and pedophiles to have federally funded Viagra, the federal governement should teach us about fiscal responsibility and that they don't want to have to read a bill before they vote on it.

The full article is at http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/0..._n_511252.html, but here are some gems...

No Viagra For Pedophiles
Proposed By Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.), this amendment serves as both a chance to provide a difficult "no" vote for Democrats as well as an opportunity to address continuing abortion financing concerns.

"To reduce the cost of providing federally funded prescription drugs by eliminating fraudulent payments and prohibiting coverage of Viagra for child molesters and rapists and for drugs intended to induce abortion." (Amendment #3556)

End The Fiscal Responsibility Lecture
Proposed by Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.), the GOP takes issue with what they see as a hypocritical line in the health care bill that sets aside taxpayer dollars to create a program encouraging fiscal responsibility.

"To repeal the new $375 million program directing the very same Federal Government that has amassed a $12 trillion debt to lecture Americans about financial responsibility." (Amendment #3563)

Read Before Voting
Proposed by Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.)

"To require all Members of Congress to read a bill prior to casting on a vote on the bill." (Amendment #3566)
