"We will be joining those who established Social Security, Medicare and now, tonight, health care for all Americans," said Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., as the vote neared.

it won't go into effect for 4 years...until then, we just hand them our money so it can appear budget neutral for the following 10 years...

I am hoping someone challenges the legality of the way this was passed.

maybe. they have been good to the pro gun crowd lately. I could see them overturning this, or a state by state bill claiming they will not enforce it.

I'm betting that our wonderful Governor will not be one of them.

Just in case you want to vomit some more:

11:35 PM ET: The fixes to the Senate bill has now passed, 220 to 211. Read our story about the fixes, and about what's in the bill here.

11:30 PM ET: Still a few minutes left before the vote closes, but Democrats have picked up more than the 216 vote necessary and the House will pass the "fixes" they wanted to the Senate bill.

11:19 PM ET: The "motion to recommit" has failed, 199 to 232. The House now moves to its final vote on the fixes it wants to make to the original Senate bill.

11:12 PM ET: CNN is reporting that a Republican member of the House yelled "baby killer!" at Bart Stupak when he stood to speak against the motion to recommit. Reminiscent of Joe Wilson yelling "you lie!" at President Obama last year? We're looking into who it was.

11:08 PM ET: Democrats now have more than the 216 votes against the motion to recommit and will be able to have a vote on the Senate fixes bill.

This is confusing so let me be clear: Democrats have won the first vote and passed the Senate health care bill. They are now moving to pass "fixes" to that bill in a second separate vote. Republicans are trying to prevent that second vote.

10:55 PM ET: House Republicans are now trying "recommit" the reconciliation bill and reinsert the Stupak Amendment that was included in the bill the House passed in the fall. To be clear, though, this is a separate issue from the core bill, which has already been passed.

10:47 PM ET: The House has passed health care reform by a vote of 219 to 212. They will now vote on the "fixes" they want to the Senate bill.

10:45 PM ET: According to the current roll call, the Democrats have crossed 216 votes. If that holds, the Democrats have passed the bill.

10:41 PM ET: White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs just tweeted: "About 40 staff in Roosevelt Room with VP to watch the vote - President walked into the room to sustained applause."

10:31 PM ET: The voting has begun! House members have 15 minutes to vote. Cue Jeopardy music.

10:25 PM ET: Pelosi speaks on behalf of the bill, thanks President Obama, fellow Democrats, the late Senator Ted Kennedy.

10:14 PM ET: Boehner, after giving a fiery speech, yields the floor. Speaker Pelosi is now up, and will be the final speaker before the roll call vote will begin.

10:06 PM ET: Republican Minority Leader John Boehner now speaking, his speech built around the refrain "hell no!" The vote will probably start in the next 15 to 30 minutes.
