I’m not sure pressure works anymore. They are hearing it from both sides. Either they see the ramifications to the country—or they don’t. Most moderates are appalled at the probable costs. There are at least ten moderates who have expressed qualms:
Nelson of NE
Nelson of FL
And maybe even Feinstein of CA who has publicly complained about placing more mandates on her state.
This is not just a Republican nightmare.
Theres no stopping this. And youll be amazed how easily it will pass the Senate. A year from now, the attitude will be We got socialized medicine, and the world didnt end! Those demotards were right. 2010 will not be a bloodbath, people forget. And the ugly stuff doesnt hit until 2013, remember. That is deliberately planned.
The GOP will be lucky to pick up twenty seats in the House, maybe even ten. The republic has been dying for decades; the ascension of Teleprompter Jesus is just the arrival of the minister for the funeral. Barry was right, the Nation Below Canada is no more exceptional than Greece or Turkey or Zimbabwe. The voters have seen to that.
It is time to sack DC.
Nelson of Florida loves this bill. Perhaps it’s time to turn up the heat in Florida:
Better to work with Lincoln who seems to be the only dem who *might* vote to stop this BEFORE going to the floor for debate. I would offer to help her win re-election *IF* she votes no on Saturday night.
