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.

I knew Altmire would change his vote. I suspect he was one of Nancy Pelosis votes she had in her backpocket the last time.

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.

'Where the hell are the Republicans! Ive heard NOTHING, NOTHING, NOTHING."

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.

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

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.

"The reconciliation bill is up. He should know which way he is voting now unless he’s waiting for CBO estimate."

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.

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.

ABC Jonathan Karl Has The Democrats At About 210 Votes on Health Care

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

Give Marcy Kaptur a call. She represents Toledo, Ohio and is a solid lib, but she's reportedly wavering over the abortion coverage in the Senate bill. It doesn't hurt that the Bishop of Toledo voiced his opposition to the bill in parishes this weekend.

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.

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.

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.
