Rep. John Boccieri, Ohio-16 Rep. Jason Altmire, PA-4 Rep. Barty Gordon, Tenn-6 Rep. Brian Baird, WA-3
Could become indies.
Call all 4 of them and tell the Communist pigs they’re politically done.
Bart Gordon’s staff is not answering the phones. They must be getting an ear full.
Where the hell are the Republicans! Ive heard NOTHING, NOTHING, NOTHING.
Ever wonder what it would be like to live in an alternative universe? Wonder no more.
All prostitutes have their price.
Here is a list to call:
I have no idea what happened to the Democratic party but they became the Progressive party. They have been taken over by Progressives, its like a cancer. This is what they have always wanted, full control over every aspect of our lives. Not only our lives but according to the bill, our pets lives too. I read last night this bill also involves Vets
Carrot = Blank check for your favorite pet projects.
Stick = FBI...We know the address of your family...We have transcripts of all your phone calls, emails, pillow talk, text messages, inner-most thoughts, visits to the confessional....
Both Baird and Gordon are retiring. These YES votes were expected.
Boccieri is not as yet a YES.
Altmire has been leaning yes for weeks.
Raw totals on the flip:
178 Republicans, including Joseph Cao (R-LA), who voted Yes in November. Hes in the Stupak bloc.
20 Democrats who voted No in November:
Bobby Bright, Mike McIntyre, Stephanie Herseth Sandlin, Walt Minnick, Artur Davis, Chet Edwards, Frank Kratovil, Mike Ross, Dan Boren, Gene Taylor, Larry Kissell, Dennis Kucinich, Collin Peterson, Ike Skelton, Jim Marshall, Mike McMahon, Charlie Melancon, Tim Holden, Ben Chandler, Health Shuler.
5 Democrats who voted Yes in November (confirmed Stupak bloc):
Bart Stupak, Marion Berry, Dan Lipinski, Kathy Dahlkemper, Joe Donnelly.
17 potential Democratic No-Yes flip votes:
6 lean Yes:
Jason Altmire, Bart Gordon, Brian Baird, John Boccieri (Clyburn Four), Scott Murphy, Betsy Markey
Glenn Nye, John Tanner, Suzanne Kosmas, John Adler, Lincoln Davis, Jim Matheson, Harry Teague.
4 less possible:
Travis Childers, John Barrow, Allen Boyd, Rick Boucher.
20 potential Yes-No flip votes:
5 additional Stupak bloc (Stupak-curious):
Steve Driehaus, Brad Ellsworth, Marcy Kaptur, Jerry Costello, Henry Cuellar.
15 other wary Democrats:
Mike Arcuri, Zack Space, Chris Carney, Mike Doyle, Paul Kanjorski (lean yes), Ann Kirkpatrick, Alan Mollohan, Nick Rahall, Dan Maffei, Bill Owens, Baron Hill, Solomon Ortiz, Gabrielle Giffords, Earl Pomeroy, Tim Bishop.
Democrats need 25 of a combination of the 17 potential No-Yes flip votes and the 20 potential Yes-No flip votes. So they need 25 out of the remaining uncommitted 37.
Four more neutered liberals.. pansy a$$holes.
CALL THESE BA$TARDS!
Neutered Blue Dogs. They only vote with their constituents when they have permission from Nancy.
Laz, you are a poet and philosopher. Well said. I think you will agree with me, that these four are soon to be “unexpectedly” unemployed.
No surprise. They will all roll over in the end.
There is no such thing as a moderate Democrat. Any Conservative who is hoping a Democrat will turn on their party to kill the biggest bill in history is engaging in wishful thinking.
If the Dems cared about what the people thought this turd wouldn’t be able to get 50 votes.
There was never really any doubt, was there? It’s all about the bribes and promises.
I think he is one of the seats that is turning repub come Nov. He must have done this for campaign cash.
I just spoke with Boccelli(sp)ohio, office and he is still undecided they said of right now. I voiced my concern calmly and hung up.
Glenn Nye, you are so effing gone in November if you vote for this.
Isn’t that the truth...Nancy and her ilk could be the Ceaucescus......
People tend to ignore the existence of "backpocket votes" when they are looking at the NO votes and YES votes for the original House bill. There is no way to know for sure how many Congressman were allowed by Pelosi to vote NO unless she needed them. But, as Michael Barone pointed out, Pelosi wouldn't have cut the deal with Stupak if she didn't need the votes of the Pro-Lifers. So that sort of puts a maximum on the number actual NO votes that Nancy can turn to YES votes easier than flipping a switch. My guess is she has 3 or 4, maybe 5.
