Breaking News: Obamacare Repeal Vote in Senate

Dear Robert,

Our latest intel indicates that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell plans to offer a Repeal Obamacare amendment to the FAA reauthorization bill today! Click (link removed) to start calling your Senators now and urge them to vote YES on the McConnell Amendment to repeal Obamacare!

Take Action Button

Now is the time to put pressure on moderate Democrats to repeal Obama's government takeover of health care. Below is our list of moderate Democratic Senators to call. Call these Senators now because if all Republicans vote with McConnell we still need 4 Democrats to vote to repeal Obamacare:

Manchin, Joe (D-WV):(202) 224-3954

Webb, James H. (D-VA):(202) 224-4024

Nelson, Bill (D-FL):(202) 224-5274

N elson, Ben (D-NE):(202) 224-6551

Casey, Robert P. (D-PA):(202) 224-6324

Tester, Jon (D-MT):(202) 224-2644

McCaskill, Claire C. (D-MO):(202) 224-6154

Bingaman, Jeff (D-NM):(202) 224-5521

Two weeks ago in a bipartisan vote, the House of Representatives passed a repeal of Obamacare. For us to gain passage in the Senate, the Tea Party movement must force moderate Democratic Senators to vote YES on the McConnell Amendment today!!! Call our targets above and Click (link removed) to call your Senators now!!!

I don’t need dick armey to count. Yesterday I said Lieberman plus three would do it. Lieberman is the key vote. Turn him and the others have wiggle room. He may be in no mood for obammanonsense after the muslem brotherhood is about to take over Israel in a bloody, violent, and final war. He has obamma to thank.

It maybe futile to try to get these swing state senators to vote the will of the people, but the campaign ads that will be run against them in 2012 will not be futile.

If all Republicans (and I use that term very loosely with respect to Murkowski and some others), then they will indeed need 4 Democrats. Any possibilities given the large number of Democrat senators facing re-election in 2012? I don’t think the Dems will waver, but here’s a list of potentials:

Joe Lieberman (Conn.) - not running in 2012 and someone who owes no favours to Obama or the Dem machine.

Bill Nelson (Florida) - will face a very tough race in a state which just elected Marco Rubio.

Amy Klobuchar (Minnesota) - a very low profile first-termer in a state where the electorate has to be having buyer’s remorse over Senator Franken-stein.

Claire McCaskill (Missouri) - another lightweight who is in a state where Senator Blunt hammered a member of the famous Carnahan Clan in November.

Jon Tester (Montana) - Montana’s Republican Congressman won in November by 217,000 votes to the Dem’s 121,000, with another 20,000 going to a libertarian candidate. Tester has to be very nervous.

Ben Nelson (Nebraska) - He’s got his neck stretched out a mile in a very Red state.

Jim Webb (Virginia) - the Virgina Governor’s result has to be keeping him up at nights

Even if they get the 60 votes to overcome a filibuster, Reid controls the bills that come up for vote and he will NEVER allow the repeal bill to be voted on.

Sen. Jim DeMint sent me an email earlier stating the same thing. He even provided a link to his PAC that lists all Senators' #'s and where they stood (on the repeal vote) at press time.

When I called Sen. Webb's office they genuinely seemed to take notice.

Disagree. We set the tone for the important 2012 Senate races now. We need to keep pressing forward as the Tea Party movement, including like this.

McCaskill won’t give up her knee pads.

That was the McCaskill of old. Today she's claiming to be independent of the administration's policies, hoping her constituents have short memories. To hear her now claim she is opposed to the mandate provision is a head scratcher. When it passed, she was the first face (after Schumer of course) to take to the cameras, boasting about the wonderful gift the dems have given the American people. Regardless of how she votes, she should be shown the door in 2012.

I don’t understand how anybody, especially an insider like Dick Armey can consider Bill Nelson a “moderate.” I think his ADA score is over 90. He talks real folksy but he’s a radical.

‘You talk like the Rats will actually honor the agreement.’

These kind of ‘gentleman to gentleman’ agreements are ALWAYS honored in the Senate, since otherwise they would not be made, and in that case the Senate could not operate.

Dumblank, see you generally are an antagonist poster.
You need to quite hyper-ventilating long enough to have a rational understanding that the Pubbies only have 47 in the Senate and can only make a showing, but can not pass doodley squat and the dems see nobamacare as their Golden Fleese and are sure NOT going to vote for repel, not to mention to over-ride a veto.

I have no problem with “staying the course”, but as I pointed out to dumblank, we only have 47 votes in the Semate and don’t forget the dems have spent their whole lives drooling for socialized medicine.

Does anyone actually think the dems, 2 years out from next election, will suddenly become concerned with what the majority wants?

Agree that there is no such thing as a "moderate" Democrat. That said, at the very least, they should be contacted, to remind them of their reelection prospects.
