Posted on 07/29/2009 9:57:12 AM PDT by MaestroLC
Democrats will meet in committee in one hour to begin marking up healthcare legislation. Theyve cut a deal with the Blue Dog Democrats.
Go here and get the number for your Congressman. Call now.
Tell him to oppose H.R. 3200.
Can we completely bankrupt America ? YES WE CAN !
If it passes, Blue Dogs and Obama will go down to defeat.
If it fails, Obama will have wasted much political capital.
It didn’t have to be this way. But Obama and the Democrats wanted to ignore the people.
Do you have this right?
I’m shocked I tell ya, just shocked. Blue dogs are nothing more than Democrats with bigger bridges being built with their names on them.
Did they cut a deal to not vote on it until after they all return from their Bora Bora vacation homes?
Like anyone ever thought for a second that these supposed “Blue Dog” Dems would ever vote against their own party. Please, all this is was posturing to make themselves look like they give a damn about their constituents. They were always gonna vote for this crap sandwich. If this thing passes, America as we know it is done, sorry to say it, but that’s just the way it is
>> Can we completely bankrupt America ? YES WE CAN ! <<
It is not like the Fiat currency that we print is worth anything anyways.
Maybe they will just print more money to cover it....
Told ya, polls or the will of people matter not to these idiotic morons.
I’m assuming that “cut a deal” is a euphamism for the bluedogs getting thier piece of the pie (extortion money).
This will be a signal for the blue dog voters to choose (R) next time around.
This will be a terrible mistake on the part of the Blue Dogs.
If they vote yes on obamacare I believe you will see Americans, conservative Americans, rise up as never before.
Spread the word on the September March on D.C.!!!!!!!!!!
No matter what the deal turns out to be, America is screwed.
That flushing sound you hear approaching, is more of our freedom going down the toilet.
Never trust a dog that has been choked blue......
Bullcrap if it is ready Rahm will ram it in. Will anyone read it?
Told ya, polls or the will of people matter not to these idiotic morons.
ONLY during election time.
Yep. And "cutting a deal" with Obama, Pelosi, et al is a euphamism for "getting lied to".
The Blue Dogs caved.
They will not vote on this until Sept.
The Republicans MUST spend the entire month of AUG on the House floor reading the details of this bill.
Make Nancy bar the door, and if she does, stand on the steps of the Capitol and read it.
I’m watching the markets to see how this makes them feel.
She can't guarantee they'll keep their seats.
I'm wondering if she's offering some kind of golden parachute for their life after Critterdom.
Note to the BDs and Pelosi: Don't think you'll get busted for bribery? Talk to Monica Conyers.
” Though House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer says the bill won’t reach a floor vote by the August recess, leaders hoped to get the bill out of committee by the end of the week.”
The best world would probably to get a bill out of committee but no vote. That way we can chew the Blue Dogs a new one in August. Its the details that kill them.
What Dems are desperately trying to do is vote this out of committee before August recess.
It is vital that this is where it gets stopped.
The so-called blue-dogs were pressured and caved, because even though they will be yelled at in August by the American people, they know that in September the full House will pass Obamacare.

I do not know if these are accurate, but unlike most in Congress or the Senate who dont read the bills they vote on (shameful), some Americans do take the time to read it.
The Blue Dogs are going to be in a world of hurt if this is correct.
It also offers the Republicans an opportunity to use the whole month to educate the public to the details.
Look on the bright side, it’ll be valuable to line the cat litter and bird cages with...
What Rush said is that Dems want this passed out of committee on Friday before the August recess. That is where it has been stalled by the so-called Blue Dog Dems and they want it passed to lesson the complaints from their constituents during the recess.
He also said that the full House will vote on the bill in September, where he is certain it will pass. They don't need any Republican votes. They don't care what the American people think.
McCain said it
Blue dogs bark but they don’t bite
I wish that were true. Unfortunately the average American demoRAT voters and so called "independent" voters are dumber than a box of rocks. The "blue dog" demoRATs vote the liberal-socialist-marxist party line 98% of the time on the crucial bills of more taxes, more gubmint spending, gun control laws, implementing the Fairness Doctrine, Hate Crimes (for homos, blacks & Islamics) legislation, Cap n Tax legislation. The blue dog demoRATs spin it so it sounds like they voted for the John Birch Society agenda right down the line, when they come back to their districts and sound like hard core conservatives, evangelical born-again Christians, pro-American, pro-Israel, and the dumb ass sheeple will fall for this pack of lies and return the blue dogs and any demoRATs for that matter, back to the Congress with 60-80% winning margins. Go figure. Dumb ass voters!!!
