I noticed that they did not do a close up of Marines that had been captured by the Japanese and were tied to trees and tortured to death.
In any case I will watch it tonight to remember what suffering those men went through to defend us.
LORD, I promise to give a special offering if You will stop this health care farce of a bill and leave the dem leadership looking like the idiots that they are! Oh please Lord, THEY believe in killing innocent babies and THEY THINK THEY ARE GOD! Stroke them down Lord, give the American people the Victory and let the DEMS know who the REAL BOSS is—the LORD JESUS CHRIST not fake messiah Obama!
Immediately after receiving the final reconciliation bill language, Senate Republican staff was ready and willing to meet with Senate Democratic staff and the Senate Parliamentarian to discuss the fact that the House reconciliation bill may be brought down by the 310(g) point of order in the Senate. Senate Democrats are mysteriously unavailable until after the House votes on the health care bill tonight. The Senate Democrats appear to be pushing off this meeting so that House Democrats will remain in the dark about what is likely to happen to the reconciliation bill on which many have staked their careers in Congress. House Democrats should be alarmed by this latest development, since the survival of the reconciliation bill is clearly at risk in the Senate.
If Republicans can get the parliamentarian to agree with them even once, whatever ultimately passes the Senate will have to go back to the House. And Democrats in the House quietly admit that its very likely they will have to vote again on the reconciliation fixes at some point down the road."
I have to hand it to the house Republicans. They are fighting tooth and nail.
The guy from NJ just said 32 more people would get health care.
Get a good tight clothespin if your heart desires, but DO support Sarah, she groks the country’s condition even if she has a blind spot for one politician she owes a favor to.
She is the only real conservative with guts!
She has more freeper support then anyone else!
I'm glad to get the fruit off the screen.
Whitfield (R) is spanking the Dems now.
And this via @JoeTaxpayer Rep. Suzanne Kosmas flips her previous “no” vote to a “yes” - what changed? $65 million going to her district... http://bit.ly/9xo5J1
Sorry to interrupt but a friend of mine from D.C. just called and they are staying through the night and she told me that they were unaware that this bill is done. No one from the Repubs has been out for a couple of hours and they are still hard at it. She said that the Union is cornered (at this time) but tensions are high.
For what this is worth. (I haven’t read anyone’s recent posts on here yet....just hopped on to relay this info)
Not even 1/100th the money needed for implants.
Congrats for you. Sorry for your Mom.
Thx for your caring and thoughtfulness.
God be with us all . . . off to church.
First I’ve seen of that video, but I have said and knew all along he was dying to vote yes.
THE VIDEO IS PROOF.
HANG HIM OUT TO DRY.
WHY IS THIS SURFACING TODAY?
I think that sums it up. We are gambling with our futures.
This is probably crazy talk, but has anyone considered that maybe enough backlash happens and new enough information comes to light (including revised scoring from CBO and the Actuary, plus clarification of the fuzzy math used by the House) - that the SENATE develops a conscience and finds a way to kill this thing?
I know, crazy....
Not really- they were SUPPOSED to have voted already- but it’s way past original time- I expect within the next two hours.
Tell them to stay strong and make lots of noise! We are with them!
Rep Edward “Maaukey” - what a Communist jerk! Of course we say “NOPE” to Communism, you grandstanding scum!
Yet, conservatives even today continue to blame Bush despite that we now have the Party in office that REALLY grows Gov’t. And today we see the fruit of all their diabolical lies.
Yes that’s exactly it. I thought exactly the same thing you did. Are you my long lost twin by the way? (Just kidding). And for all those years until today the liberal mainstream media and even many “conservatives” on this forum who have bought that spin keep bashing Republicans which does what you say divide conservatives because many conservative believe the lies that Republicans grew government. But i just showed that the number of government employees per 1000 population did not increase so that was all lies created by the liberal media to divide conservative and assure that democrats achieve total power to turn our once free Republic into socialist utopia where we will all be starving slaves standing in bread lines (”but it’s free” they ‘ll say).
Let’s not forget that all these bribes are ultimately OUR MONEY!!!! Not “hers” or “For her district~!”
Is a doctor who is paid by Medicare/Medicaid a “government employee”? Are highway construction workers “government employees”? The military is about a million less than 20 years. Does that chart count only civlian government employees? You were saying?
You guys it MUST be the last days because we really are seeing Good VS Evil here. Good meaning the American people vs the Dems
