Skip to comments.Dick Morris Says Democrats Plan to Pass ObamaCare with Only 50 Votes After August Recess - Video
Posted on 08/04/2009 4:51:44 AM PDT by Federalist Patriot
Here is video of Dick Morris talking with Sean Hannity last night about Democrats planning to try and pass Government Health Care with only 50 votes (plus VP Joe Biden as tie-breaker) after they return from the August recess. According to Morris, Senate Dems plan to use rules in the "Reconciliation Process" that will allow them to avoid having to get the 60 votes needed to invoke cloture.
Morris and Hannity urged listeners to use August to attend town hall meetings and forums on health care and let their voices be heard, in addition to writing letters to Senators and Congressmen.
The video also has the two talking about the Health Care bill and how it will mean rationing of care, particularly for older people. Morris shared that his father is 99 years old, and that under ObamaCare he would not be approved for the procedures he has needed to stay alive. Morris says Republicans must explain to the public that ObamaCare will mean the end of Medicare and seniors being able to get the care they need.
NOTE: The opening of the video has a great synopsis of comments opposing Government Health Care that have been made recently at Town Hall Meetings . . . . . (Watch Video)

Obama had no idea how much of a uniter he was going to be.
They do that and there will be a rebellion.
Obama has already stated they intend to do so if they can not get sixty votes. I know he has no power in the senate....but.....
I wonder if the people that voted for Obama (you know hope and change) see the irony that he is willing toram the largest debt production Government boon doggle in history down our throats with this sort of tactic.
And their reward is to be made out to be a "mob" and ignored.
Witness Lloyd Dogget's response in Texas.
I doubt it. The dems could not have forgotten what happened when they were the minority party and they could rely on Senate minority voting rules. They would be the ones who destroyed minority rights and would have nothing to whine about if the repubs took over fully in 2012 and rammed everything up their asses.
Huge risk...if they do that, then they “own” it, lock, stock, and barrel, and they also “own” all the repercussions of a failed system if it is as much of a boondoggle as it appears to be.
Dr Obama’s plan :
Like Cash for Clunkers!
Change that from a car named Clyde to a Grandpa named Clyde and now you have ObamaCare. This is the new AmeriKa of Obama. The new United Socialist States of AmeriKa.
The only sad part is that Jack told me they would need to kill Grandpa Clyde. I asked that this be done quickly. Jack informed me that they use a special liquid Drug poured into Grandpa Clydes mouth and it would be very quick. I really feel bad about this for Grandpa Clyde he has always been there for me and always cared for me.
I have to sleep on this decision. I still love Grandpa Clyde and please don’t think bad of me if Grandpa Clyde only has one more day to live. I gave his life to Obama care.
They ignore the “mob” at their own peril.
Given Chuckie "The Footstool" Schumer's comment yesterday that the Dems will pass the bill without Republican support and, if necessary, via a procedural move to make an end-around the Energy and Commerce Commission, it is extraordinarily clear that there is an "Us vs. Them" mentality in Congress. These people are so out of touch and so wrapped up in their power that they have forgotten who employs them.
NEVER, in the last 100 years has it been so clear that the only way to fix the problems with our government is to have a complete and total House (and Senate) cleaning, starting next year. NO incumbents, PERIOD!!! Not one. I don't care if they DID get your Aunt Mabel's teeth fuxed, NO INCUMBENTS!!!!
IF Zero and his administration lasts long enough, let's show folks like Chuckie the door and introduce him and all the rest to the wonderful world of unemployment benefits.
It doesn’t matter. Once people are dependent on “free” medical care, elections will forever be fought over who can provide the “benefits” in the most efficent manner.
I agree. IMO, we're already seeing the early stages of it with the heckling and jeering the politicians are getting all across the country at the townhall meetings.
You would think it would make some of them think twice, but too many of these arrogant a$$hats are convinced that we just don't know what's good for us!
I beg to differ and, by tossing their butts out of office starting next year, we'll show them that we know very well what's good for us.
The downside of that is that the Republicans will reap the benefit of the left's self-destruction without having to lift a finger or change a thing to appeal to their conservative base!! So, the country may ultimately win, but Republicans and conservatives will end up the big losers!!

Here is a link to the full House Democrat Health Care Plan in PDF. In Section 1233 E & F, pages 426-433, you find the part about mandatory end-of-life counseling for anyone over 65 years of age. Section 152 Page 50: All healthcare services will be provided without regard to "personal characteristcs" which is not defined within the document but is understood to include immigration status.
Section 224 b Page 125: The Secretary shall design and implement the payment mechanisms and policies under this section in a manner that (1) seeks to (B) reduce health disparities (including racial, ethnic and other disparities).
A lot more provisions now being documented at that site.
Donwload it, read it, study it, then hammer your reps over it and pass it on to all you know asking them to do the same.
Also, here's a large image of the Democratic (Obama) Health Plan chart-another Obama empty promise. This is the one the House democrats are censuring. Email these links or the image to everyone you know.
Obama and all those pushing his radical agenda are abject marxist ideologues. Their "fundamental; change" is nothing more than a destruction of the American free market and fundamental republican principle.

...and on the lighter side, take your mind off the Obamanation for a few minutes and enjoy some beautiful Western US scenery slideshows.
The bastards really don’t care what the people want. They know that the rewards that they will receive far outweigh the minor inconvenience of not getting reelected.
I was one of the last holdouts on election eve, November 7th, praying for a last-minute miracle that B.O. would lose the election. Maybe I’m living in lala land now, too, thinking that there’s any way this horrible bill will be defeated. Let’s say it IS voted in—could a Repub. prez in 2012 reverse it—you know, the way B.O. issued executive reversals by the bucketload when HE waltzed in?
I believe that Morris is correct....CWII, here we come....
They can try to do this but I suspect a few moderate senior dems won’t go for this type of power play. Payback will suck at some point and the repubs will have the health care push through to point to.
