Kaptur says she's leaning toward backing health-care measure ^ | 3-19-2010 | TOM TROY

Posted on 03/19/2010 7:45:02 AM PDT by Whenifhow

One of the key undecided members of Congress on health reform, U.S. Rep. Marcy Kaptur (D., Toledo), remained uncommitted yesterday but said she is "leaning" in favor of the bill after getting some personal attention from President Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

"I am leaning toward voting for the bill if we can properly deal with the abortion issue and we are fast about that task," Miss Kaptur said.

A photograph taken yesterday shows both Mr. Obama and Mr. Reid (D., Nevada) with hands on Miss Kaptur's shoulders while they were all at a signing ceremony at the White House for a newly passed jobs bill, an unrelated measure.

"[The President] just greeted me, said hello. He gave me a kiss on the left cheek," Miss Kaptur said.

Mr. Obama then listened as Mr. Reid assured Miss Kaptur that the bill would not undermine the long-standing Hyde rule against federal abortion funding.

"He said, 'Marcy, I helped write those provisions. I assure you they don't go beyond existing law,'•" Miss Kaptur said. "I said, 'I want to see the language you're talking about.'•"


Also yesterday, U.S. Rep. Mark Schauer (D., Battle Creek) announced he would support the legislation.

Mr. Schauer said he was confident that a modified version of the Senate bill would pass that eliminates special deals that were included to win the votes of senators from Nebraska and Louisiana.

Keep calling them.

How can this bill help health care if about half the nations doctors are considering quitting after it’s passed:

More window dressing. She was probably a yes anyway...and this is not a flip. Call her and tell her how you feel...but this really isn’t a surprise, and there are others we can flip.

“He gave me a kiss on the left cheek,” Miss Kaptur said.”

Matthew 24:1-8 gives the background and sheds light on the various horses and riders described in Revelation chapter 6. I’ve highlighted certain words for emphasis:

And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to [him] for to shew him the buildings of the temple. 2 And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? Verily I say unto you, there shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down. 3 And as He sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what [shall be] the sign of Thy coming, and of the end of the world? 4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. 5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. 6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all [these things] must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in diverse places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.

In the Gospel account, Jesus made it clear that imposters would arise and deceive many. The rider on the white horse represents ALL the deceivers, especially a certain last-days dictator sometimes called the antichrist or subsititute messiah.

"I am leaning toward voting for the bill if we can properly deal with the abortion issue and we are fast about that task,"

IOW, "I'm leaning toward voting for the bill if we can just come up with a cover for my lack of integrity that isn't quite as schizophrenic and insulting to my constituents as those of some of my colleagues."

she is from Toledo, which is more straight-ticket-Democrat-zombie-voter territory. Another one who would vote to repeal the law of gravity if Barry and Nancy told her to.

What a total charade this is.

That people actually believe some of these folks are really undecided is both amusing and sad all at the same time.

Kaptur is probably thinking, well, it'll only be a baby or two who gets towed under by this.

Only takes one Marcy and you're on that Long Black Train to Perdition.

If you can’t go to DC, then go to their local offices, or hold street corner rallies in front of a nursing home, or SS office. Be sure to put your signs on sticks you can then rest on, hands will cramp. Take photos, call media, talk radio, program them into your phones. Take a supply of magic markers, and a bull horn if you have access to one. Hit the Medicare cut & gut theme..nothing like mad grannies and gramps. VA Cuts, taxes on special needs kids...35 new taxes.

Pass it on! There is $500 BILLION in Cuts to Medicare, SS, Huge fees for Tricare for Life, the over 65 retired Military’s health ins. 8% cuts to Medicare benefits, 15% cuts to nursing homes, cuts to in home nursing care of Medicare patients. 35 NEW taxes to be collected for 4 years BEFORE the health care promised goes into effect! Even a tax on Special Needs Kids, like Jerry’s Kids.

Call all your Reps today.........raise as much noise about the Medicare cut & Gut to give illegals FREE health care and our jobs as you’s CRUNCH TIME to save the soul of America. He’s now promising LaRaza free health care for illegals and more jobs.

Health Care Rationing for Seniors Another Problem in New Obama Plan

Repeal Obamacare? Unlikely

Obama spent last week campaigning for health care reform, at one point getting some college-age fans worked up about all the free stuff — “free” preventive care and “free” checkups and so forth — they would receive if his version of health care reform passed.

TRI CARE FOR LIFE This from a google search:

This option would help reduce the costs of TFL, as well as costs for Medicare, by introducing minimum out-of pocket requirements for beneficiaries. Under this option, TFL would not cover any of the first $525 of an enrollee’s cost-sharing liabilities for calendar year 2011 and would limit coverage to 50 percent of the next $4,725 in Medicare cost sharing that the beneficiary incurred. (Because all further cost sharing would be covered by TFL, enrollees could not pay more than $2,888 in cost sharing in that year.)

CODE RED Contact list

Remember they are all being offered BRIBES for their votes. Ask them how much their bribe price is.

The National Republican Congressional Committee has published a target list on health care. In addition to continuing to contact the five Tennessee Democrat Congressmen, you can go to contact some of these targets. Much of the talk following Obama’s announcement has focused on how to defeat this second bill through reconciliation, but that is misleading because the first step to defeating Obamacare is not by concentrating on defeating the “fixer” bill but by defeating the Senate bill in the House when it goes to the floor for an up-or-down vote on Thursday, March 18th.

Congressional Dems on Twitter

And here are toll-free numbers we can use to call any Senators or Reps.

At the first number below you must wait through a tape recording urging you to tell your Rep or Senator to vote “yes” for the health care bill. Just hang on and when the recording is over, you will get the Capitol operator. Just ask for your Rep or Senator’s office. Then you will either talk to an aid or have the chance to leave a message for him/her to vote NO on the health care bill.

When you use the second number and the Capitol operator comes on, just ask for your Rep or Senator’s office. Every time I use this number I get the Rep or Senator’s answer machine, so it may be set up that way all the go to their answer machine. Either way you can leave a message to vote NO on the health care bill!

We need to use these toll free numbers that have been set up for the health care/ BO supporters and illegals to use! After all they are FREE!

Hey Marcy, while Barry and Harry are busy stroking your ego, maybe you should be thinking about the opinions that really matter, those of your constituents who are going to vote your ass out of office if you support this.
