While You Were Sleeping: Pelosi Health Care Bill passes House 220-215

HotAir has all the coverage, comments, here are some highlights:


Cao R-LA the sole GOP Aye vote, (he thinks he has a deal with the WH to help LA the poor deluded critter) *h/t onlineanalyst at HA comments:

Over at American Spectator blog, Phillip Klein notes the following re the Cao (R) vote to pass the Pelosi atrocity.

Joseph Cao, the lone Republican to vote in favor of the health care bill, released a statement explaining his decision. In his statement, he emphasizes the adoption of the Stupak pro-life amendment, and also notes:

“Today, I obtained a commitment from President Obama that he and I will work together to address the critical health care issues of Louisiana including the FMAP crisis and community disaster loan forgiveness, as well as issues related to Charity and Methodist Hospitals. And, I call on my constituents to support me as I work with him on these issues.

More after the break:

TOTUS went to the Hill and read a Teddy Kennedy letter and made them feel all moved and historic, they cheered like they won the World Series when it passed, he also took the time to SLUR the Tea Party Patriots (Obama also reportedly used the tragedy at Ft Hood, asking members if they thought their tough votes were really a sacrifice and saying Ft Hood was a sacrifice. Can you even imagine? The brave men and women at Ft Hood did not die so he could ram through a 3 trillion dollar unConstitutional entitlement bill in the night, they died for our FREEDOM. That he could use the tragedy to further his political agenda within 48 hours of the events, after so callously making his shout outs the other day before raising the nation’s loss once again makes me think he is a malignant narcissist at the least):

Did you hear what President Obama said?

Mr. Obama, during his private pep talk to Democrats, recognized Mr. Owens election and then posed a question to the other lawmakers. According to Representative Earl Blumenauer of Oregon, who supports the health care bill, the president asked, “Does anybody think that the teabag, anti-government people are going to support them if they bring down health care? All it will do is confuse and dispirit” Democratic voters “and it will encourage the extremists.”

Think they will cheer like that on Election Night 2010 as they are losing their seats? Probably not.

They have used all their capital to push an unwanted 2 trillion dollar Health Reform whose bens do not begin until 2013 at a time of double digit unemployment

This vote will haunt them as unemployed Americans wonder where the jobs are and why they keep spending money on everything but REAL job creation..
