I just got an e-mail notification from CNN that according to blah blah the demorons now have the 216 votes... Welcome to Amerika
They are lying. Stupak is gonna cave.
This Congress and “president” brought to you by McCain-Feingold and the lying liberal TV news media.
The outcome of any vote by Congress on health care is irrelevant since Article 1 Section 8 of the Constitution does not specifically grant Congress the power to regulate health care! Therefore the so called legislation on its face is Unconstitutional! The people are not bound to comply with an Unconstitutional act of Congress! This is a power regulated to the states per the 10th Amendment!
It is the reason why Idaho and Virginia have passed legislation blocking federal health care from being illegally imposed on the citizens of those states by reasserting their 10th Amendment rights and 34 other states considering similar legislation! This is the point people need to hammer home with their Congress critters!
I find it hard to believe that this would be coming to a vote if the DemonRats didn’t have the numbers. This was supposed to be all wrapped up in August, they’ll slow-roll it as long as they need to.
When is MTP taped?
If this is true, Hoyer is waiting on the Stupak deal with Obama and his executive order, etc. to give him cover.
They’ve had it all along. Anyone watching the Fire Dog Lake blog as some kind of barometer is a kidding themselves - she’s just recording when they announce which way they will vote. She doesn’t have info on the “Un-decideds”. There never were any such things. Stupak and his group will cave; they will strip the Medicare cuts once the bill is passed. And we will have Obamacare by sundown tonight. We cannot stop it because they have no interest in listening to us.
They probably have about 220 and right now are working on who are most vulnerable in November and deciding who won’t have to vote for it.
Just read on Sean’s board that Loretta Sanchez is a no vote, and from Firedoglake it’s showing:
lean favor 0
lean oppose 10
Trying to socialize all of American medicine........
by ONE VOTE !!!!!!!!!!!
Does anyone have a similar pic of a lightening bolt hitting the Capital building?
“Were going to get those 216 votes because we believe that they understand that Americans want health care reform by an overwhelming majority,” Hoyer said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”
These people are DELUSIONAL!
It’s all a part of the dog and pony Communist show.

We have a new ballgame boys and girls...
I just watched Fox News Sunday and learned that the “deem and pass” or “slaughter rule” is dead, and the Dhimmies have agreed to an up or down vote on the Senate Bill itself, the one Peloski herself was quoted last week saying she was so glad her members did not have to vote on, because it is full of the arm-twisting deals Harry Reid had to put in to get his troops to vote for it.
I am pretty certain that means the House will also have a direct up or down vote on the “reconciliation” package of “fixes” as well, that includes all of the arm-twisting deals that Madam Shpeaker had to include for her flock.
I think this is a best-case scenario for the Taxpayers, who are still raising so much hell that you cannot place a phonecall out on Capitol Hill. John Cornyn is vowing to expose every single special deal that the House makes, and is telling the House Dhimmies to be very, very careful about what they vote to approve, because it will not pass in the Senate.
I’m not saying that we have a slam dunk by any means, but it is a new ballgame this morning kids, so I give it 60/40 odds this morning that Peloski will delay that vote rather than chance it being voted down all together. If this is killed in the House, that is the end of the ballgame for Premier Hussein and the Dhimmies this Fall. They have painted themselves into a corner on this and it serves them right that there is no safe way out.
Wasserman on FNS also did not commit to 216 at this point.
What amazes me is that getting re-elected should be the LEAST of their concerns if those bass turds pull this crap.
House Democratic Caucus Chairman John Larson says Democrats have clinched the 216 votes they need to pass President Barack Obamas health-reform plan. We have the votes now as we speak, Larson told ABCs This Week. President Roosevelt passed Social Security. Lyndon Johnson passed Medicare. Today, Barack Obama will pass health-care reform. Pressed if some Democrats may lose their seats for supporting health reform, Larson said: Yes. Its quite possible. Leaders expect the vote between 6 p.m. and midnight.
