(And, yes, Pelosi's bill in the House is different than the one the Senate is working on. So 'bill' in the poll question refers to whatever bill, if any, is agreed upon between the House and Senate.)

I think it'll most likely get signed in to law before the end of the year.  It's possible it'll drag until early 2010, but I think that's less likely considering it's the start of an election year.

It could still fall apart at this point, but the ones who will pay for that are the Blue Dog Dems who've been dragging their heels.

I have no idea and won't venture any guesses. Nor would I predict what will be in the final bill, but I have a feeling I'm going to be disappointed in it. I hope I'm wrong.

^I'm already disappointed in it.  It's just a matter of what degree of disappontment I will have with the ultimate final bill.

Reid's already making weak, soft-spoken noises that he maybe might could entertain the possibility of perhaps not exactly making it entirely in a state of somewhat completeness if that's okay with everyone that it might not get done by year end.

I swear, he is the weakest SML I've ever seen.

Well, given my faith in politicians ( :p~ ), even if this bill comes out early, will it REALLY help? Maybe I've got a better chance winning the lottery. :p :p

Politicians are like bananas; they hang together, they're all yellow, and there's not a straight one among them.

Unfortunately, I'm forced to vote for the last on the list.  :(

The better question for me is this:  If it DOES pass, what will change?

When pigs fly.  If then.

Whatever finally gets passed, it will be far from what we need and will leave the US nowhere near other civilized countries that have figured out how to have universal health care.
