Ohio Democrats John Boccieri of Alliance and Charlie Wilson of St. Clairsville came off the fence on health care today and announced they'll support the $940 billion package the House of Representatives will consider on Sunday.
Boccieri announced his decision at a Capitol Hill press conference surrounded by constituents with difficulties who are having difficulties finding medical insurance and paying health care bills.
"These families are the face of the 16th congressional district and the face of Ohio," Boccieri said. "A lot of people are telling me this decision could cost me my job. There are a lot of lies and fearmongering."
Boccieri voted against the bill the House of Representatives approved last year because he felt that it would cost too much. The old version of the bill cost more than $1 trillion.

“This will guarantee he gets a cushy job somewhere within the Democratic establishment (government, lobby firm, made up job somewhere just to pay him off, etc, etc) - probably one that will pay much more and without so much public scrutiny.”
Of course. There will be a huge new bureaucracy to be filled with Dems. But, Tom Coburn tried to cut off some of the escape paths by promising to hold up nominations, and publish votes.

Maybe so, but as long as his seat is gone forever and someone who loves liberty and the Republic with moral values is elected in his place!
The problem is, Boccieri was likely going to lose anyway. So he figured there's no use pretending any more.
Charlie Wilson, though, may think he can skate by.
Of course, this is the Cleveland “Plain Dealer”.
They have a plan to get around that. It involves granting citizenship (and voting rights) to 20 million illegals before the elections. They just need to pass this first.
I am afraid if they are going to get this maney off of the fence now than they will have enough when crunch time comes and they need them.

Who are we kidding? All these demwits have their price and lack principles. Some are just holding out for more of our tax dollars.
That will be another nail in their coffin.
