Neutered Blue Dogs. They only vote with their constituents when they have permission from Nancy.

Some of these people need to review the history of Romania in 1989.

Boccieri refused to go to the Obama rally today and now he is a yes vote? I believe Clyburn a lot more than Pelosi, but that seems hard to believe.

I knew Altmire would change his vote. I suspect he was one of Nancy Pelosis votes she had in her backpocket the last time. The Tea party here in Western Pa are on him hard right now. We’ll continue to work on him. We’ve already met with him in Washington earlier this week and have a protest planned outside his local office here. Needless to say his phone line has been burning up.

No. They still need a dozen, perhaps a few more.

the only one troubling there is Altmire. none of those 4 are considered to be part of the 214 NO’s that some counters have on their list. They need to switch a lot of NO’s and hold dozens of YES’s.

The Rats must be putting more pressure on him than the Tea Party.

Actually, if I were a Rat looking for cover, I would tell everyone I was voting yes but then vote no.

I have no idea, but it will probably pass, and when it does, I guess I need to learn how to speak with a British accent since America will officially become Europe now. I can’t believe what I am seeing, what is happening to my country

Seriously, folks! Anyone not seeing this coming is an idiot. It is going to pass in some form or another, only to be *adjusted* at a later time. And there will not be any large scale reaction to them passing ObamaCare. And Obama’s poll numbers will fly through the roof.

Firedoglake, a VERY liberal site, has a good running whip count. It may be found here. It still shows them more than a dozen short, even with Clayburn's latest additions.

If they do that, they might as well make an announcement to switch parties after they vote no. Unless they want a butt naked Rham Emmanuel pointing fingers into their chests in the shower...

This needs to be the very loud response by Republicans.

Whatever deal you have cut, we are going to find out about it.

We are going to expose you and publicly humiliate you.

Whatever you were promised will not receive dime one of funding once we take the majority.

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

They're using the carrot and stick persuasion method.

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.

Keep fighting.

Raw totals on the flip:

Definite YES:
191 Democrats.

Definite NO:
178 Republicans, including Joseph Cao (R-LA), who voted Yes in November. He’s in the Stupak bloc.

Definite NO:
25 Democrats.

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

7 possible:
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.
