Posted on 03/15/2010 1:44:44 PM PDT by Mount Athos
Rep. David Dreier (R., Calif.), ranking Republican on the House Rules Committee, said the word around the House is that Democrats are still about 10 votes away from securing the 216 they will need to pass changes to the health-care bill. Dreier added that that number might be moving in the wrong direction for Democrats.
You are hearing that people are peeling off, he said.
Dreier suggested that the Democrats could be losing votes.

This crap is going to pass so the states better be taking pointers from Virginia.
It is also 2 votes short of failing as there are 214 “No” votes.
I hope the thugs planning to vote for this illegal pos know we are not Britain nor are we a communist country.
They will be punished.
What I mean is the guilty parties will be punished.
I'd love to see Texas join in, anyone really so VA is not out there alone.
Whatever bribery the Dems offer, it has be be cashable after the member is out of office, and with the Dems in the Minority. Are House Dems the future Ambassador corp?
“To clarify, Dreier suggested that the Democrats could be losing votes.”
Hope he’s right about that. You’d think some level of panic would become discernable at some point if true.
Great idea. God I miss Texas. Been thinking of coming back.
Texas will absolutely NOT turn over 1/6th of their economy to the Federal Govt. I expect a 10A challenge if this passes.
Since the state legislature only meets once every two years they may miss this boat if the Governor doesn’t call a special session.
Prayer and phone calls guys. Going to be a long week. Be vigilant.
We just need 1 high profile “respected” Dem to say NO!
And to do it on BOR or Hannity.
I’m pretty confident that most of these cowards are just looking for cover. One leading Dems with stones and the floodgates will open.
Who to believe?
This is a roller coaster, isn’t it?
They may pass this after the Nov elections.
The dems that lose their seats may all vote yes out of spite.
We wont be safe until the new congress critters take their seats.
Where can I get the number for the Texas State Senators, I would like to call mine as well.
Let’s hope this guy is right.
The more people come out against Obamacare, the better, for many reasons.
Second, there’s safety in numbers. They’ll be less worried about getting offed by the Chicago thugs in charge.
Third, it’s a lot harder to buy a dozen people than just one of them.
