    Is Healthcare Back On?

    Posted by Erick Erickson
    Wednesday, July 29th at 10:47AM EDT

    Head’s up: there is a rumor circulating in the House of Representatives that enough Blue Dogs have caved on health care for Nancy Pelosi to get the bill to the floor this week. The memo to Republicans assuring them there’d be no vote could have been a ruse to turn down constituent heat enough.

    Democrats are growing fearful that August recess will turn the Blue Dogs cold and want something out by Friday.

    It appears they may have the votes to do that.

    (EVEN IF YOU'VE DONE IT ALREADY....) CALL YOUR CONGRESSMAN RIGHT NOW.

    The blue dogs don't have any power to cave in.

    They know they don't have a say in anything.

    They will get slaughtered in the 010 election too. That's the house; not the Senate. Dumb-ass.

    It'll happen eventually, but not in its current form.

    I agree.

    The bill will be made in conference.

    The other g 7 nation that passed a national health care plan show the EXACT opposite happening.

    The party that opposed it was destroyed.

    This is history

    I feel that once a black fella has referred to white foks as "honky paleface devil white-trash cracker redneck Caspers," he's abdicated the right to get upset about the "N" word. But that's just me. -- Jim Goad

    There are certainly some political games going on with this.
    It will be interesting to see which Dims fall on the sword for their messiah.
