GOP Loses Fight With Democrats Over Health Votes - ABC News


House GOP loses effort to limit Democrats' tactics for voting on health care overhaul bill
WASHINGTON March 18, 2010 (AP)
The Associated Press

Republicans have lost an effort to force House Democrats to hold a direct vote on the health overhaul bill.

Democrats want to use a special procedure that would let the House automatically approve the $940 billion measure when lawmakers vote to begin debating a separate proposal that would revise that big health bill.

Democratic leaders hope this maneuver would ease the political pain for lawmakers hesitant about voting directly on the giant health legislation — which the Senate has approved.

Republicans tried to block that move, but Democrats in the House prevailed by a 222-203 vote on Thursday.

The House is set to debate the health bill on Sunday.

They're deluding themselves if they actually believe this.

How come Nancy isn't out there on the front steps doing the Running Man and screaming "IN YOUR FACE, FUCKERS!!!" as she sprints to the White House to get a signature?

You're confusing Speaker Pelosi with the likes of Bachmann.

If, God forbid but Allah willing this does pass, when we win the House back this November we'll just "deem" it rescinded and even deem that it was signed by President Biden (Obama loses all interest in politics once Dems lose the House and he decided to run for "King of the World")

I'm still waiting for someone on the left to 'splain to me how this process, which Obama himself said was no way to pass important legislation like healthcare is somehow now a perfectly acceptable way. He said, did he not, that if a President were to use this then than President would have lost the ability to govern. Given that is what he said, has he lost the ability to govern and will he now resign? I say he should resign.

Maybe she learned her lesson? She did that leading up to the first TARP vote (when republicans were already on board) and the GOP voted in lock step against it.
