So Mark is saying- if they get the actual votes- then he’ll keep after them with the constitutionality of forcing people to BUY insurance.
Thank God. Forcing people to buy insurance is what most states have problems with? right?
Thank you, Great One!
OMG - I had to mute that creep Joe Sestak just now on Cavuto’s show.
Let me know if Neil asks him about the deal he was offered by the Obama administration to drop out of the Senate race against Specter.
LOL. So did I. There is something really, really wrong with that guy.
I thought I must have misheard something. I had just turned the TV on.
Based on what beside the one yes vote?
TGO is on the cutting edge here.
From Fox’s Gretawire 5 minutes ago:
I just got this note from my FNC colleague John Brandt - it contains the latest on the Stupak/abortion/ federal funding controversy:
A group of pro-choice women just exited the Speaker’s office and said that another vote on the Stupak language is not going to happen.
There are rumblings that his 1100 newser is cancelled as well, but we don’t have that confirmed.
Producer, Fox News Channel
Does anyone have a reasonable count anywhere,,do we think Nancy is short? If it all depends on Stupak, I am pessimistic. He, if he is negotiating with Pelosi, has a price. ANd the leftists want this so bad, they will pay it.
I don’t think Abortion payment is going to make or break this bill.
What was the gist of what Mark had to say?
Stupek’s press conference “put off indefinitely” per Cavuto....
STUPAK’S press conference has been put off...INDEFINITELY!!!!
I hope all understand that their yes vote tomorrow means the Senate bill, in it's entirety without change, becomes Law. Those promised fixes may never come about.
Cavuto reporting Stupak presser at 11:00 a.m. has been put off.
prsser for stupak is off for now. HIs price is being negotiated.
I look for FR to be hit as it is during debates and elections. Gotta love the kids in the basement with nothing better to do.
Praying all day against this travesty!
Thank-you for the work that you do!
Stupek language will not go in — Pelosi believes they have enough votes without him.
Orrrrrrrr...is it that they will NOT bend to Stupak’s demands?
Pelosi CLAIMS that she believes she has enough votes without Stupek and his people.
Did they say Stupaks coalition was falling apart?
Exactly — Pelosi back to where she was prior to the Stupek amendment emergence.
She is trying to put a happy face on it.
Re: Stupak - I take it he was moving to “YES” & planning to annouce at presser but has now chnaged his mind and will stay “NO”?
Cantor, the GOP’s chief vote-counter in the House, said that the first-term Louisiana Republican would oppose healthcare legislation after having voted with Democrats last fall, the only Republican lawmaker to do so.
“Yes, I have spoken to Joseph Cao as recently as an hour and a half ago,” Cantor said in response to a question on whether Cao would oppose the bill.
“He is a firm ‘no’ against this bill,” Cantor added.
That whole "love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you" thing gets tougher every day.
Come quickly, Lord Jesus.
Cavuto just reporting that the Stupak presser has been postponed...and traffic and construction are holding up the protestors from getting into DC?
They speculated that Stupak’s coalition might be falling apart but they based that on Pelosi’s opinion which we know is likely BS.
A friend of mine in DC estimates that there are about 1,000 on the west lawn so far.
Today, women in the United States are fighting for their lives. You must fight too! A womans right to have safe and legal abortion is about to be traded away.
Can someone please explain to me why we want so badly to kill babies? We want to keep murderers alive but kill babies and I really do not understand.

@wonkroom pro-choice women just exited Speaker’s office - sd another vote on #Stupak NOT going to happen http://bit.ly/cWBTkV
“Today, women in the United States are fighting for their lives.” To suck the brains from the unborn. Disgusting bitches. Words fail.
CSPAN 2 NOW- House Committee HC Meeting!
I am - does anybody have a good fax that they are sending?

@wonkroom: #Stupak just canceled his press conference...
No amendmnents for Stupak...that is why presser was postponed...maybe he was going to say he was working with them at the presser ... and now there is no reason too???
What do you think of this?
The counts I've seen are all over the map. It's dizzying.
Plus if San Fran Nan cuts a deal with Stupak for his 12 votes, the Pro Abort Nags stand ready to vote no with their 40 votes.
I just don't see that working for the Dems
That’s my take. Stupak has nothing to report as the WH is NOT working with him. Godd for us!
Look to the Communist system in China for your answer.
DEMOCRATS LIKE ABORTION!!!
That’s how it sounds to me.
Looks to me like Pelosi must now grind for a vote or two as it appeared they were doing prior to the emergence of this Stupek amendment stuff last night.
Because what is wrong has become right.
I know this in my head. I know it to be true because God says that in His Word. But for the life of me, I don’t understand either.
Godd= good for us or God for us...either one works! :)
Well, you can pray for their souls, but you don’t have to pray for their success in taking over healthcare. ;)
Rep Rahall (D-WV) tells @GMA he’s still undecided. Sounds like...main hangup...is abortion. Video here: http://bit.ly/db46no
I think “KILL THE BILL” in large, very bold, very much ink-using letters should suffice.
I saw Tom DeLay. Said we need four more no votes to kill the bill. I’m praying so hard that we get the votes we need. Surely there are more Congressmen who will not take a bribe like my Congressman (Bart Gordon) did. We all need to pray hard.
My gut feeling is that Pelosi will have enough votes to give 7 to 10 Dems the ability to vote no and try to save their seats. The woman is arrogant, leftist, repugnant.But stupid she is not.
