Skip to comments.Tough Road Ahead for Dems After Vote Passes
Posted on 11/07/2009 9:18:01 PM PST by truthandlife
Listening to the debate on the floor today, it was clear that Democrats considered it a moral and ideological obligation to pass this billconsequences be damned. The leadership is congratulating itself nowPelosi is already the greatest speaker of all time apparentlybut there's a tough rough ahead in the Senate. Pelosi could lose 39 votes. Reid can't lose any. Passage in the House definitely creates more pressure on Reid to get it done, but the slender margindespite the size of the Democratic majority in the House and all the arm-twisting and deal-making (what did Cao get?)has to make Senate moderates even more nervous. There's a long string yet to be played out here, and it's still likely to stretch into next year, by which time Pelosis historic accomplishment of Nov. 7 may look foolish.
When “their creator” was passing out morals, the RATS thought he said “orals” and they all got in that line.
I’m a little confused. Will it need 60 votes in the Senate or merely a simple majority of 51?
We get to study it, and tar the Reps who voted for it with what they have done. We get to tar the Senate with this as they try again to come up with something they think they can pass and then they all have to vote on this crap storm again for real.
In that time, we have to impress the Bluest of Blue stater Representatives that they aren't safe. This isn't just the blue dogs in trouble but every Donkey in the corral.
Make that DUMP the DEMS....AND RINOS!
We need to use our McDonnell victory to rally against Warner and Webb. Two Democrats in a Red State.
Webb’s term is up in 2012.
What I am so sick of hearing is how this is going to be oh so good for me (the American people). How everything is going to be so rosy and how rainbows and unicorns are going to fly out of my ass as it rains glitter and hearts. Just shut the hell up and screw me already. Don’t kiss me, don’t whisper sweet nothings, just screw me cause that is all you (Congress) want to do. I am so sick of these people and by God I want them out so bad. Be it by ballot or by bullet, this pack of lying sons of b****es has to go.
We need to get clips of that debate. Specifically, I want the one that tells everyone that veterinarians get their loans forgiven. When asked what the hell this has to do with health care, the Democrat answered: EVER HEAR OF SWINE FLU? It was surreal. That should be our first commercial.
The current Congress reminds me of a Power Puff Girls villain, “cockroach man” — a huge creature really composed of many tiny cockroaches. Each member who voted for this bill is a cockroach. Defeat them individually, then sanitize their breeding grounds — the schools — to prevent a reinfestation.
Screw everyone who decided that the elections in 2008 weren't important enough to show up. This is what you wanted and got. By the time the GOP manages to overtake the RATs, if ever, it may be too late.
Chances are excellent this will eventually come to be viewed by all as a “Pyrrhic victory.”
It didn’t seem too rough for tonight’s Democrats....
We are kidding ourselves. these people don't give one sh#t about us, they care about the pork then can bring home.
americans have voiced their opposition to this crap and they will ram it down our throats regardless.
the only REAL question remaining is, how hard is this going to be to repeal in 2012...
Seven Days In May.
And, BTW, you're talking against your own tag line.
I watched most of the debate and vote on CSPAN today. What was most interesting was the pro-life amendment the liberals(pro-abortionists) swallowed for the purpose of this massive redistribution bill. I was amazed that was the only holdup for democrats, not even benefits for illegals.
Yep. Sick of POS Webb pretending to be a “moderate” and voting with Reid every single time. Same thing with the POS Warner. Now the battle moves to the Senate where we must win.
You can't veto anything after you've been impeached.
It doesn’t need overturning because it is not law yet. It still has to get through the senate and all manner of things can happen to it then. Crap and trade was passed last summer by the house and is still floundering. Why is that? Think about it. Dumbocare will likely go the same route.
