Holmes Norton Says Dems Don't Need to Wait on Scott Brown if He Wins to Vote on Health Care - Video
Freedom's Lighthouse ^ | January 18, 2010 | Brian

Here is video of Democrat D.C. Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton saying yesterday that in the event Republican Scott Brown is elected tomorrow, "we don' owe the people of Massachusetts to wait" until their new Senator arrives to vote on Health Care Reform.

Norton said "we don't have to wait "for somebody to come and kill it." Scott Brown has said he would be the 41st vote against Government Health Care in the U.S. Senate, which would destroy the Democrats' 60-vote majority that enables them to invoke cloture. . . . (VIDEO)

I would NOT be surprised if they voted on it tonight or tomorrow. THey WILL vote on it before he is seated.
Heck, I would not be surprised if they do endless recounts and other BS to delay him taking seat for months.
They are SLIME!

But Baawwrrney said they would/could never do such a thing. He had a cow, lashing out, erupting into a neurotic hissyfit ...

"That is the stupidest thing I've been asked in a long time. That is insane, the suggestion could only come from a demented right wing source," erupted Representative Barney Frank (D - MA), when asked by The Washington Times about what he thought of assertions that Massachusetts Democrats would stall the certification process should Mr. Brown win. "There isn't the slightest possibility of it happening---a way of doing it. That is conspiracy theory at its most contemptible."

Blanche Lincoln:
Unless you want to be Vic Snyder’s receptionist, you’d better take heed and listen to the desires of the great state of Arkansas: voting for this monstrosity IN ANY FORM WILL cost you your job, period end of story.
Ms. Lincoln, you need to ask yourself a question: “Am I going to follow the orders of a President who is realistically at 40% (or lower) approval in the polls and ignore the wishes of my constituents?
If you have no desire whatsoever to return to politics, by all means, vote for this terrible Bill.

This attitude is precisely why Massachusetts is on the verge of replacing Ted Kennedy with a Republican. “We owe the voters of MA NOTHING. Their will be damned!” I can’t wait for November.

Getting whiplash trying to figure out what is ‘fair’ when it comes to filling a Congressional seat that the Democrats regard as “theirs.”

First, there was supposed to be a special election — by Mass state law. NO! It’s too important. We must CHANGE THE LAW so the Democrat Governor can appoint someone to fill the seat.

Can’t have Mass disenfranchised in DC, can we? Apparently we can, now that it appears a Republican might win!

Eleonor Holmes Norton is a racist of the first water. She is in the House on a pass, and doesnt hold a regular seat there. She isnt the brightest bulb on the tree by a long shot, and I think she cuts her own hair with a dog grooming kit she bought at Petsmart.

Dear Governor Perry,

On March 30, 2009 the Texas House of Representatives passed HCR 50 affirming that the State of Texas claims sovereignty under the Tenth Amendment.

You have publicly supported this bill, and stated that attorney generals from all over the union could be getting ready to sue the US Government.

We are asking you to take the lead.

We are asking you to order the Texas Attorney General to publicly begin working on a law suit under Article IV, Ninth, and Tenth Amendment of the Constitution.

We are asking you to protect the citizens of Texas that we will not stand for government controlled healthcare in our state.

Under your leadership we can effectively kill the proposal of this administration and allow Texas to be a state free from socialism and collectivism.

Be the voice of reason in the national debate and allow Texans the ability to solve the problems of our state.

Thank you,

(Signature Date)

From Texans Against Government Controlled Health Care

Facts about the 10th Amendment:

The Tenth Amendment (Amendment X) of the United States Constitution, which is part of the Bill of Rights, was ratified on December 15, 1791. The Tenth Amendment restates the Constitution’s principle of Federalism by providing that powers not granted to the national government nor prohibited to the states are reserved to the states or the people.


Affirming that the State of Texas claims sovereignty under the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States over all powers not otherwise enumerated and granted to the federal government by the U.S. Constitution, serving notice to the federal government to cease and desist certain mandates, and providing that certain federal legislation be prohibited or repealed.

Take Action! Before it is too late!





Feds Have Built Only 32 Miles of 700 Mile Double-Border Fence Originally Mandated by Congress

“One reason DHS has been able to do this is an amendment that Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (R.-Texas) slipped into an omnibus appropriations bill that Congress passed on December 18, 2007. Hutchison’s amendment put a loophole in the fence law that allowed the secretary of Homeland Security not to build the fence Congress had mandated the year before.”

Democratic Party implosion will increase exponentially and be near assured if these Demtards decide to push through ObamaCare if Brown does win and he does not get to cast/throw his vote. Bet.
