10 AM Rules Committee meeting (C-span2 LIVE all day)
11 AM Stupak press conference
12 PM Demonstration at the Capitol
3 PM Obama meets with the Democratic caucus
2 p.m.: The House will debate for one hour the rules of debate for the reconciliation bill and the Senate bill.
3 p.m.: The House will vote to end debate and vote on the rules of the debate.
3:15 p.m.: The House will debate the reconciliation package for two hours.
5:15 p.m.: The House will vote on the reconciliation package.
5:30 p.m.: The House will debate for 15 minutes on a Republican substitute and then vote on the substitute.
6 p.m.: The House will vote on the final reconciliation package.
6:15 p.m.: If the reconciliation bill passes, the House will immediately vote on the Senate bill, without debate.
Here’s the plan:
STEP 1: All Americans for a government that abides by the Constitution change their local laws to allow the keeping of chickens by any taxpaying American.
STEP 2: Once taxpayers are allowed to keep chickens, we amend the law to allow all taxpayers to keep hogs. (After all, we wouldn’t want to discriminate now, would we?)
STEP 3: Hogs proliferate from sea to shining sea.
STEP 4: Government workers begin to disappear.
STEP 5: Missing government workers are replaced with new government workers.
STEP 6: The new government workers disappear too.
STEP 7: In short order, no one wants to be a government worker.
STEP 8: With a shrinking pool of government workers, fewer laws interfering with private enterprise are enacted.
STEP 9: Smaller government at all levels - federal, state, city, and local - result in HUGE SAVINGS being realized with the tax dollars returned to the taxpayers.
STEP 10: After eating off the FAT OF THE LAND, the tens of millions of hogs are sold to the Chinese for hefty profit, thereby paying off the debt caused by said government workers. America is now debt free.
Proof yet again that everything you need to know to fix America can be found by watching DEADWOOD.
P.S. Did I forget to mention that because of the methane produced by the hogs, America also becomes energy independent resulting in the total collapse of the Middle Eastern countries that produce oil? That, too!
That does not add up.
Been away from technology for a minute. Update please. Did it pass...
I’m calling Rep. Joe Courtney tomorrow to ask precisely when I get the Congressional Health Insurance coverage. I hear it’s pretty good.
Amen, factmart. I pray I live to see it, too.
Altura, I am voicing my opinion. There is no requirement that I adopt yours here.
With this campaign the favor is repaid. Watch what happens afterwards before you super glue your mind closed.
IT IS TIME FREEPERS TO TAKE BILL O REILLY DOWN !!!!!!!
It does if you count the illegals...
My only regret? I didn’t catch up with the Freepers! I was looking for Flip The House shirts, but alas...
Re: Sarah post, YOU SAID IT! I had the pleasure of seeing her w/Glenn Beck in Tulsa two weeks ago. She’s a blessing to this country.
I miss Ronnie too...it’s a sad day.
Still debating. No vote yet.
well, I take it back.....goofy tagger
If you can resist for a year you can resist forever. I've been resisting for 11 years. It can be done. I pray for your resolve.
Right, but you’re still annoying plus being off topic.
#1 You get people hating on Bush over the economy when it was instead the Democrats (frank) who ordered the rules in loans for housing to change and cause so many bad loans.
#2 People blame Bush and then elect more of the Democrats who caused all the problems to fix the economy.
$4 To make it all worse, the people elect a good looking half black President who was worshiping in an America hating, white hating church.
Now we have all this socialism/communism and we hope to God a lot of CONSERVATIVE Republicans come along the next two elections to repeal a bad health bill law.
Many people who voted Obama have buyers remorse IMO.
Can we also take down MSNBC?
Thanks! We’ll have to take a serious look at him too!

Paul Huber, Repub, is running against one of the other Stupak sellouts, Kathy Dahlkamper, of NW PA! Heres his facebook page! Hes only got a few hundred friends! He needs more!
A lot may be CHOOSING to forgo it.
Get the wine sipping hag off the TV! Ugh!
Do you think I don’t wish I could agree with you? I’m a fifty-eight year old man who has to side with Conservatism.
There is NOTHING Conservative whatsoever about backing a man like John MeCain. He is as antithetical to our cause as a man claiming to be on our side can be.
If we can’t be honest with ourselves, there is no future.
Lynn Wolsey - I cannot take it. “Being a woman... and domestic violence is a pre-existing condition.” Lady, what is it about you that makes people want to exercise some domestic violence on ya?
Exactly. Seems like that comment should have been stricken from the record too, since the dems refused to put in language requiring Congress to be on the same plan.
WTH?? I am a woman so I have a pre-existing condition because of domestic violence...that woman was a trip
WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama is reassuring immigration reform advocates that he is committed to working with Congress on a comprehensive bill to fix a “broken immigration system.”
In a videotaped message presented on giant screens to thousands marching on the National Mall, Obama warned of the cost of inaction. He said problems with today’s immigration system include families being torn apart, employers gaming the system and police officers struggling to keep communities safe.
That does not add up.
Figures never lie, liars figure.
Woolsey is saying that being a woman is a pre-existing condition??? Did I hear that right?
Wasserman Schultz lies like a muslim rug.

you made your point 18 times and your opinion is honorable......for you
that said ....why keep harping...why not go eat a biscuit............. now
Can you please start your own thread? We are having a live thread regarding the health care debate and vote.
No, only until Nov. 2010 and make sure you are sober enough to vote.
Come on, Brett....speak it.
Well, looks like we’re gonna be rendering a hell of a lot to Ceaser.
EVERY Dem should be FORCED to listen to the lecture series by Milton Friedman at Ithica University.
this witch is a lier of the first order
never trust a woman who has NO NECK
I think it goes well with about anything! It is sweet and hot since it is cayenne peanut brittle. :)
If Sarah is successful getting John re-elected, the irrevocable damage will be done. So don’t super glue your mind closed. THINK! Be honest with yourself. You know damn well I have a point to make and it’s reasoned.
You’ve known me long enough to know that I want solid people.
It was stricken.
Ugh. Code Red shows it 218 Yes, 213 No.
Yes, so-called “immigration reform” (which is actually LaRaza payback) is our next fight. Thanks for the news.
The people who jumped the border will get preference over those who asked nicely, I bet. Some way to increase the respect for law!
That's so 18th century, and so French. How about:
Was that Woolsey spewing that tripe? (went to the kitchew for my chips and salsa)
She is an embarrassment to my sex.
While your at it why don’t you ask him how he did in his freshman Econ class because he’s sure flunked it now.
