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.
White pansy politicians are so easily intimidated. Like shooting fish in a barrell.
This country needs some angry mobs at this point.
Lots of them.
The reconciliation bill is up. He should know which way he is voting now unless he’s waiting for CBO estimate. They are supposedly going to start voting before final CBO estimate. Make up your mind sir.
They only vote with their constituents when they have permission from Nancy.
Well, I guess they won’t have to make that decision after November because they won’t have any
This should work...
Pound Jason Altmire, PA-4.
He sounded very smug on Greta.
What do you want them to do, immolate themselves on the steps of the Capital building?
The fact of the matter is the GOP, in both the House and the Senate is absolutely and completely powerless to stop this. It ALL rests in the hands of the Democrats, and it has for over a year. This is what is laughable about the Republicans being portrayed as the "party of No". They aren't the party of "no" because they don't have the votes to stop virtually anything the Democrats want to do.
The only Republicans who are responsible for this are the conservatives who sat out the last election because they didn't want to vote for McCain. After the biggest expansion in federal government, EVER, and (what will surely be) the appointment of at least three Supreme Court Justices, I wonder how those conservatives feel about their decision to sit the last one out.
Unfortunately, a faulty comparison, because as a whole, the Romanians thirsted for freedom. 45-48% in this country are all too willing to be comfortable, submissive slaves.
Three of this commies were already known yes !

Set their phone lines ablaze.Make sure each of their staff members is busier than a one-armed paper hanger answering the phones
They’ve taken their phones off the hook.
That is the story that Breitbart was trying to get out of Mary Landrieu’s office
No, what was posted was just a pro-forma bill from last year. They need to use that bill because of Reconciliation rules that mandate that the "bill" has to be initiated before October of last year. Whatever they settle on this week, the Reconciliation Bill will look entirely different than what was posted last night. IOW, the Dems are cheating again.
After they finish marking up the bill, it will take another few days or week for the CBO to score it, FWIW.
Altmire was all over FNC saying he had to see it first.
BTW, I had a poll the other night. Two questions. 1. Do I consider myself a tea party patriot. 2. Do I support Sarah Palin. Thanks and goodbye.
Most conversatives here would say their decision to stay home in 2008 was justified, and now they claim the right to bitch about it.
WHERE ARE THE GOP LEADERS?
WE SHOULD BE FLIPPING THEIR FORMER YES VOTERS.
They get four we get EIGHT.
Your right but I dont even hear them!! Why arent they running in front of cameras? WHy arent they physically laying down in the hall? Why arent they screaming from the roof. I get they dont have the votes but they have a voice for goodness sake!
I have been calling, and will continue to do so..But I have a question. If this does pass, does anyone know if it can be repealed? Or since it is unconstitutional can the courts do something about it? I am literally sick to my stomach over this!

thank you for that link
And Altmire could still be a no vote. He has beat out Melissa Hart twice (who held the seat before) in a district that is conservative. If he sees the winds changing and its not going to pass, I suspect he might vote no to save his career. He knows that this is against his district’s wishes and the Tea party here will target him like no one else and will make it their number one priority to defeat him. I suspect Hart will run against him again. She has name recognition. Abortion is a big item in these parts and not standing with Stupak will hurt him big time.
If Alan Boyd votes yes he can kiss his seat goodbye. North Florida is RAT by registration numbers, but conservative.
216 voted yes in November, 37 voted no, they currently have about 210..
Karl says they have contacted all 37 Democrats who no in November, and there’s not a single one who said they definitively will vote yes this time...
I went headboat fishing this past summer with a guy who was a soldier in the Romanian Army at that time. He said the Ceaucescus squealed like pigs when they lined them against the wall and shot them to pieces with their AK-47s. The lesson is that even in a totalitarian state the military is still the sons and daughters of the population and thats who they will protect.
Good for you
all you need to do is ask how “MY congressman. woman is voting”
they won’t tell you of course
then say that you expect theRep to vote AGAINST it and to work on a New Good bill if he/ she wants to be reelected
remember to block your number
and have a city with zip code in their district handy. They will ask for your address but you don’t need to give it,
just tell them you are a constitutent
Her receptionist was nice. Give her a call and say a prayer that she can be swayed.
All that does is make the leftist base angry and gets them calling their reps.
We don't need that right now. Plenty of their base DO NOT LIKE this bill and we want to keep it that way.
Don't blame the Repubs. The blame needs to remain squarely on the Dems.
Call them and fax them. www.faxzero.com allows 2 free faxes per day.
I just went to Brian Baird’s website and noticed that he is not seeking re-election. Accordingly, he can flip the bird at his constituency and do whatever he wants. Great.

Would it be enough if 25 out of those uncommitted 37 just voted "present"? Perhaps they could be convinced to emulate their fearless leader Zero.
I just got thru (in about the last half hour) to Jason Altmire’s local office. I had tried earlier in the day, but it was a constant busy.
The woman who answered sounded highly stressed and frazzled; I asked if Altmire was, as is being reported, a YES vote now; she said he has not made up his mind...and I said that he should be voting NO and voting for the best interests of Pennsylvanians...NOT the far left wing of the Democratic party. I told her specifically ObamaCare hurts seniors (PA is a very elderly state) and the pre-born with the abortion provisions in the bill. She remained silent and sounded as though she was taking down my ‘statement.’
She did not ask for my zip code, but, if they use caller ID I have the same area code as their office.
All I can say is keep calling them...I am sure Altmire has made up his mind (or SanFranNan made it for him!) but they have to know that this is a career ender. Period.
I can’t afford to pay for Obamacare. :(:(:(
what is this, the SAT?
You deserve a HUGE thanks from all of us not in a district with a Dem or with a Dem flipflopper
I have blocked my number and called reps out of my area, They always ask for my adress. I guess since my number comes up as unknown.
hat is why I jot down a city in their distric with a zip code.
THANKS TO ALL who have posted numbers with city and zip codes.
makes it easy.
WE can do this
Are you sure they’re about 12 or so votes down? I sincerely hope you’re right.
