“Reconciliation” bill out & House Democrats in Disarray. Help Keep Them That Way!

House Democrats “are in disarray” according to Congressman Mike Pence and are still 5-10 “yes” votes short.

Your calls to the Capitol are helping to keep this pressure on the Democrats. Keep calling! Yesterday call volumes were at 40,000 calls per hour.  Help keep the phone lines full! We cannot let up in our pressure to let Congress know that their plans for government-run medicine are unacceptable. Remind them that they can’t count on the deals they are promised—but they can count on voter wrath in November. Even if you get a busy signal keep trying. 

Phone numbers for the Capitol Switchboard are as follows:
(877) 762-8762 or (202) 224-3121 or (202) 225-3121.
When the operator answers, politely tell them which office you would like to be connected to.  (SCROLL DOWN FOR LIST OF TARGETED CONGRESSMEN.)

Also citizens are gathering again in DC on Saturday for another “Code Red Rally” to kill the bill.

The 154 page House “Reconciliation Bill has also been released.

The big difference that needs to be reconciled—abortion funding—is absent. Apparently, the Speaker is just telling pro-life Democrats that they lost, tough, just vote for it anyway.

Instead, the 154 pages contains a lot about cellulosic biofuels, student loans, more taxes, more subsidies, more temporary federal funding for permanently increased state obligations, and more rules that you’ll need a tax accountant and tax lawyer to figure out. But don’t make any plans for your business, because things could change.

It looks as though Sen. Ben Nelson got betrayed; Nebraska no longer gets a permanent exemption from increased Medicaid obligations, and other states get some relief, with the amount based on whether they are “expansion” states or “non-expansion” states. (A two-tiered subsidy system?) Of course, Sen. Nelson can’t change his vote at this point.

Politico has posted a summary with at least 51 comments.

The most revealing is probably this:
“Ignore the naysayers posting here! Is this a perfect bill? No! Is it a start? Yes! Why? Once government gets its foot in the door of regulating the health insurance industry you will never get them out of it. It will grow, and grow and grow. Eventually, it will become single-payer which is what I want. Period. I don’t give a damn how many deals have to be made, etc. Just pass a healthcare bill and it’s over with. We’re on our way to joining the rest of the civilized world when it comes to how we pay for healthcare. YAY!”

In other words, the goal is to pass something, anything, and it will become single payer, once the private sector is destroyed. Maybe that’s why Sen. Kucinich saw the light while riding on Air Force One with Obama.

Unfortunately, the Democrats defeated, 222-203, the effort to force separate vote on Senate Bill.
