Republicans are losing ground and on defense in the health care battle after voting for the 33rd time yesterday to protect their own taxpayer-funded health care and the profits of their insurance company campaign donors -- instead of protecting patients and creating middle class jobs.

As of today, over 550,000 supporters have signed the DCCC's petition in support of historic health care reform.
