    In the House, Obamacare passed by only two votes.

    Two of which have passed on.

    The Senate Bill had no chance in the house, even if those two were still alive.

    But now they are not, even the house bill is in trouble in the house.

    After all that has happened in the last three weeks, do you think Nancy and Harry and Barry are ready to pull the plug and start fresh?

    I am a victim of Obama's War on Prosperity. I wish he would drop this shit and do something to make it possible for me to get a job.

    Not so fast, apparently the progressives have a few more dirty tricks up their sleeve.

    Pelosi aide says Democratic congressional leaders have settled on legislative "trick" to pass Obamacare; So why have a summit? UPDATED | Washington Examiner

    The bounds of progressive depravity know no bounds .......

    In order to make the trick work she needs every vote she can get.


    Two of them are gone.

    There is now a majority opposed to the house version. and the senate version can't pass the house.

    She can trick all she want, but there are no treats for her.

    That's the whole point, she gets the Senate Bill passed by promising that the reconciliation bill will fix whatever problems the Democratic "hold outs" in the House have with it. Of course their is no certainty that it will work, if it's even legal or if they will in fact follow through with the attempt but the fact that they are even considering attempting this speaks volumes about what scumbags these people really are.

    If she could get the Senate bill passed, she would have done it three weeks ago.

    The votes aren't there for it.

    Spare a tear? Doubt it. I heard a rumor that tears are to be taxed now, since there seems to be a lot being shed lately.

    Pelosi has promised all kinds of things with this legislation. It would be passed by Xmas. She had the votes to pass it. Etc etc.
    She is whistling in the wind. They dont have the votes. The Dems are using MA as political cover to back away from it. The momentum is gone. Voters are pissed at a reform bill that rewards unions and people in Nebraska.
    No, healthcare "reform" is dead. Thank Heavens.

    Shit. The Dems had a supermajority and couldn't pass this clusterfuck bill.

    These dimwits really amaze me. The folks don't want this crap but Pelosi and Reid insist that they know whats best for us. Elitist, blinded by their vison idiots.

    This bill needs to be scrapped and they should start from scratch and address the real problem. The cost. Oh Wait. Thats common sense. These Clowns don't have any.

    Hope they all get the voted out of office. Starting with Pelosi and Reid. God. These people are such assholes.
