Itís OVER: Obamacare to Pass on Sunday as Dems Lie About Deficit Savings;

UPDATE: Dem Memo Instructs to Lie About $371 Billion Dollar “Doctor Fix”

President Barack Obama and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi brag today about the coming successful vote to pass Obamacare on Sunday The largest federal government intervention into the US economy since FDR, and the most substantial legislation on health care policy in American history is set to pass the House of Representatives on Sunday, as a test vote on the floor of the House passed with 222 votes (6 to spare) on Wednesday, meaning Obamacare is all but certain to also garner the 216 House votes it needs on Sunday to reach President Obama’s desk.

As noted by many last week, the vote yesterday essentially green-lighted the use of the “Slaughter Solution” to pass the Senate Obamacare bill through the House of Representatives. The Slaughter Solution is a procedural trick which allows the House of Representatives to avoid an actual up or down vote on the special interest and pork laden Senate Obamacare bill.

Right now, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is in front of the media crowing about her success in finding the votes and being able to pass the comprehensive health care measure which will avoid “job-lock” based on the fear of losing health care coverage. Pelosi also repeated her wholly false claim that Obamacare will create 700,000 jobs “almost immediately” and her companion fantasy claim that Obamacare will reduce deficit spending by “1.3 trillion” over two decadesl and over a hundred billion in the next decade. Both of these wholly false and misleading claims rely on future Congresses not waiving certain onerous “revenue raising” measures such as the “cadillac tax” on health insurance

Nothing is over until WE decide.

I don’t expect it to pass.

I do find the threads here interesting though. You can find twenty (or more) threads here about this and one third says it is dead and “here’s why”, another thread says it’s gonna pass and “here’s why” while the last third says “do you think it’s gonna pass”.

Based on the facts I’ve seen and the comments and actions of late of actuall congressmen, I am of the first group. but we’ll see.

Whats up with the title. This fight is a long ways from over and they don’t have all the votes they need to win Sunday yet.

Absolutely right! They know what's coming tomorrow and they are going to try their damnest to discourage us and keep us from showing up. I'm not going to believe anything I read about the count until tomorrow night.

Wait- is it SUNDAY? Did I SLEEP through two days?

Is the fat lady singing?

Do we quit before the battle begins?

Let’s hold off on these pieces until Sunday. No doubt we’re not too optimistic- but actually giving up- no sirreee...not this freeper.

Whether it passes or not, this is one piece of legislation that will die due to lack of tax collection.

Obama may think he can send IRS agents out to enforce it, but he is very wrong. The economy is too tight, too many people are suffering, the first agent to try to browbeat an unemployed guy into paying for something he doesn't want will probably get hurt bad.

That'll sour the IRS/Public relationship substantially.

Unless the people go along with the tax they will defeat it.
