The reporting on this has been funny.
How many times has Pelosi declared she has the votes? ANd then you find out they don't. If she had the votes she would have voted. I dont know why she keeps repeating this knowing it's a lie.
Here it is again this AM:

WASHINGTON – A pair of House Democratic leaders predicted Sunday the final tally on President Barack Obama's historic health care bill will meet or exceed the 216 votes required for passage. But they acknowledged having yet to nail down commitments from a handful of members.

"There are still members looking at it and trying to make up their minds," House Democratic leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., said on NBC's "Meet the Press" in the hours before the vote. He added that the holdouts numbered in "the low single digits."

"We think there are going to be 216-plus votes when we call the roll," Hoyer said.

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., the party's deputy whip, also said the votes were not yet in hand, telling "Fox News Sunday" that Democrats were still short of "a hard 216."
more at the source.
It takes until the 4th paragraph to find out they don't know any more than they did 2 weeks ago, 2 months ago, a year ago.

I'm sick of this "It's going to pass, then it doesn't pass now, then it passes" bullsh*t.

Just vote on this and pass it or kill it (*pray*) already!
