    Do Dems Have Votes For Papa Obama Health Care Suicide Pact ?

    Tip: HotAir

    Two-time Pulitzer Prize winning editorial cartoonist Michael Ramirez (Investors Business Daily ) latest cartoon take on the Democrats’ rush to electoral oblivion in the midterms, and perhaps beyond, is dead-on.

    Tip: Gateway Pundit

    Speaker Pelosi doesn’t have the votes to ram Obamacare through the House.
    The Hill reported:

    House Democratic leaders don’t have the votes to pass healthcare reform. At least not yet.

    Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has expressed confidence that when push comes to shove, healthcare reform will pass Congress. But there will be plenty of pushing in the days ahead.

    Pelosi is clearly down in the vote count. Thirty-four House Democrats are either firm no votes or leaning no, according to The Hill’s whip list. Dozens more are undecided.

    Nope. This horse shit is going to die on the vine and never see the light of day. This time next year you won't be able to find anybody that will admit to even being a Democrat let alone who will admit that they voted for the bill.

    Silly far right conloons. This will be passed by Friday or Saturday. Nancy does not need the 11 blue dogs to pass the Senate bill as is. It will pass, BHO will sign it, then it goes back to Senate for another revision. That is where the rubber better meet the road for the Democratic Party, or the House will go Republican this fall.

    I can't be as optimistic, but I still believe it has a better chance than what a lot of the cons on here are saying.

    The Hill: Democratic candidates distance themselves from PapaObamacare

    The Hill:

    Hardly any Democrat running for Congress seems to want to talk about healthcare.

    Of the 26 leading Democratic House candidates contacted by The Hill, only one would commit to voting for the Senate healthcare bill if and when it comes to the House floor.

    Out of the more than two dozen Democratic challengers and open-seat House candidates, only 10 commented for this story. Eight outright declined to comment.



    Those declining to comment for this story included: former Delaware Lt. Gov. John Carney; Illinois open-seat candidate Dan Seals; Indiana state Rep. Trent Van Haaften; Nebraska state Sen. Tom White; Franklin County, Ohio, Commissioner Paula Brooks; Pennsylvania special-election candidate Mark Critz; Bethlehem, Pa., Mayor John Callahan; and former Marine Capt. Rob Miller in South Carolina.

    Those who didn’t respond to multiple messages were: Pike; Wills; Palm Springs, Calif., Mayor Steve Pougnet; Kansas state Rep. Raj Goyle; Louisiana state Rep. Cedric Richmond; Tennessee state Sen. Roy Herron; Pennsylvania state Rep. Bryan Lentz; and Washington businesswoman Suzan DelBene.

    On its website, The Hill is tracking which way members of Congress are leaning on the bill. Recently, vulnerable Reps. Michael Arcuri (D-N.Y.) and Joe Donnelly (D-Ind.) signaled they would switch their votes from yes in November to no on the Senate bill.

    Hope it turns out to be true. At this point, the stigma of failure would be worse than any of the shit they'll get flung at them once passed (not that it would be much different than what they're already getting).

    Once is is passed, Republicans have to run on their intent to repeal it

    See how popular that is

    They have failed already

    Gallup: Health care not top priority for Americans or Obama's whining - little effect

    While Papa Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid or the "Gang of Three" have spent almost a year whining over an unpopular bill to overhaul the health-care system, it appears the US public does not care.

    Gallup:
