Skip to comments.The Hunt for Health Care Votes: Democrats to Watch
Posted on 03/18/2010 12:51:20 PM PDT by Kartographer
Today is the day the clock starts running. Once Democrats post their health bill online there will be seventy-two hours until House Democrats bring it up for a vote Sunday afternoon. The Democrats' whip team will be busy in that seventy-two hours furiously counting the votes, twisting arms and convincing some of their skeptical members to support the health care bill.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi can only afford to lose thirty-seven Democrats if every Republican votes against the bill. CBS News will be measuring the whip team's progress.

How much of an indication is the vote that just took place? SlaughterHouse Rules won 222-206.

WE ARE PAYING ATTENTION! OBAMA
That votes was a silly resolution which has freaked everyone out here.
it was meaningless.
I heard Sean Hannity say this afternoon that Bart Gordon (D-TN) has excepted a bribe and will be a NASA administrator after his retirement. He’s from my hometown and I am so disappointed in him. He used to be a popular attorney here and he doesn’t need to except Obama’s bribes in order to make a decent living.
That is excellent news. Thank you.
BI-PARTISAN OPPOSITION TO OBUMMERCARE!
Democrats are racketeers. Never forget the stress they have caused in the country over this. Many people are already sick, needing health care, after they jam this stuff down our throats.
Who can be rolled? Who can be bought off and bribed? These guys are not true patriots they are political opportunists destroying the country.
I think the easiest way for the wavering Dems to get off the hook for ObamaCare would be for them to vote “Present” like Zero did when he was a Senator. Wouldn’t it be ironic if it didn’t pass due to a tactic pioneered by the POTUS?
Prior to this afternoon’s vote on the Slaughter rule (222-203), the Hill website had 37 democrats listed has being a “firm no” or “leaning no” on the Senate Bill. However, by my count, about half of these 37 democrats evidently voted in favor of using the Slaughter procedure in this afternoon’s vote.
Rally your local talk radio host into doing street protest in front of your reps local offices. Try and get the local media to cover it.
This is from a 2007 contact list of congressional aides. Some might not be there any longer, but worth a try. The ones on the one post are senate aides, a few have bounced back, its worth the effort to clog up their email system along with the phones, and 1/3rd of these senators are up for re-election.
Mail must be inspected for anthrax.
Contact congressional aides.

Good idea from the bloggers at Hillbuzz:
They offer specifics and links on how to put pressure on Dem DONORS, who have private numbers for legislators who may have taken their phones off the hook.
Congress may not want to hear from us, but theyll listen to the money men.

CODE RED Contact list http://www.nrcc.org/CodeRed/targets/
Remember they are all being offered BRIBES for their votes. Ask them how much their bribe price is.
The National Republican Congressional Committee has published a target list on health care. In addition to continuing to contact the five Tennessee Democrat Congressmen, you can go http://www.votervoice.net/link/clickthrough/ext/94697.aspx to contact some of these targets. Much of the talk following Obamas announcement has focused on how to defeat this second bill through reconciliation, but that is misleading because the first step to defeating Obamacare is not by concentrating on defeating the fixer bill but by defeating the Senate bill in the House when it goes to the floor for an up-or-down vote on Thursday, March 18th.

On the Bubble (Major developments from the yes and no columns in the House)
Congressional Dems on Twitter
And here are toll-free numbers we can use to call any Senators or Reps.
At the first number below you must wait through a tape recording urging you to tell your Rep or Senator to vote yes for the health care bill. Just hang on and when the recording is over, you will get the Capitol operator. Just ask for your Rep or Senators office. Then you will either talk to an aid or have the chance to leave a message for him/her to vote NO on the health care bill.
When you use the second number and the Capitol operator comes on, just ask for your Rep or Senators office. Every time I use this number I get the Rep or Senators answer machine, so it may be set up that way all the time...to go to their answer machine. Either way you can leave a message to vote NO on the health care bill!
We need to use these toll free numbers that have been set up for the health care/ BO supporters and illegals to use! After all they are FREE!
