Post-Passage: The Morning After..

Update: Lots of money bombs happening today. Here is linky for Fire Pelosi, just gave some dillydollars..h/t MoeLane

The countdown is ON: 40 hrs $40 40 seats to defeat Pelosi in Nov! http://www.FireNancyPelosi.com #FirePelosi #hcr

Ed at HA has the list of Dems who voted No last night. Our Rep isn’t on it (Harry Mitchell voted yes). Lookee here, here is his GOP opponent David Schweikert. If you are in AZ 05 please give Dave some love. Here is Dave’s website, www.david10.com, it is overloaded, keep trying!

Here is his AZ Tea Party Network page.

David Schweikert Conservative for AZ - 05

The field now changes and the table will be run by the voters in November.

Remember, Pelosi can win when she can change Teh Roolz, but we win when the votes are in play (See Brown, Scott – MASS). No doubt many Dem Critters will wake up with a helluva corruption hangover.

We have 7 months to fund their opponents and organize at the state level to make sure these ‘Democrats’ are never ever given a chance to use Teh Roolz to usurp the wishes of the American people again.

Let’s make it count. Find your local Critters opponent, see if you can support them. If so, let’s get some money bombs going!

Update: Mitt Romney in The Corner:

A Campaign Begins Today   [Mitt Romney]

America has just witnessed an unconscionable abuse of power. President Obama has betrayed his oath to the nation — rather than bringing us together, ushering in a new kind of politics, and rising above raw partisanship, he has succumbed to the lowest denominator of incumbent power: justifying the means by extolling the ends. He promised better; we deserved better.

He calls his accomplishment “historic” — in this he is correct, although not for the reason he intends. Rather, it is an historic usurpation of the legislative process — he unleashed the nuclear option, enlisted not a single Republican vote in either chamber, bribed reluctant members of his own party, paid-off his union backers, scapegoated insurers, and justified his act with patently fraudulent accounting. What Barack Obama has ushered into the American political landscape is not good for our country; in the words of an ancient maxim, “what starts twisted, ends twisted.”

His health-care bill is unhealthy for America. It raises taxes, slashes the more private side of Medicare, installs price controls, and puts a new federal bureaucracy in charge of health care. It will create a new entitlement even as the ones we already have are bankrupt. For these reasons and more, the act should be repealed. That campaign begins today.

— Mitt Romney is the former governor of Massachusetts and author of No Apology.

Here are the Dem Critters who voted no:

TGIF!!! Dirty Deeds Done by Dems

Slaughter-House ’10: House Dems prepare to turn Democracy on its head to ram through bill that will end their careers…

Update via Drudge by way of RollCall, Senate Parliamentarian says no go on reconciliation of a bill that has not been signed by POTUS:

The Senate Parliamentarian has ruled that President Barack Obama must sign Congress’ original health care reform bill before the Senate can act on a companion reconciliation package, senior GOP sources said Thursday. The Senate Parliamentarian’s Office was responding to questions posed by the Republican leadership. The answers were provided verbally, sources said.

…. House Democratic leaders last week began looking at crafting a legislative rule that would allow the House to approve the Senate health care bill, but not forward it to Obama for his signature until the Senate clears the reconciliation package.

Video update: House GOP on the earmark moratorium

Video update: Jon Kyl R-AZ on the Senate GOP united stance against reconciliation for non budget-germane health care bill matters

Follow-up to yesterday, House and Senate GOP are pushing back as Pelosi leads her merry band of masochists off a cliff….meanwhile the House GOP Conference has passed its unilateral moratorium on ALL EARMARKS…finally staking out the Higher Ground on spending! Happy dance!!!

The House Republican Conference has just adopted a unilateral moratorium on all earmarks, effective immediately.

NRO Corner:

Rep. David Dreier (R., Calif.), ranking Republican on the House Rules Committee, said the Slaughter Rule is evidence that Democrats cannot pass their bill “while playing by the rules.”

“With the Slaughter Solution, House Democrats have exposed themselves as willing to abandon the most fundamental element of legislating – a transparent, up-or-down vote— in order to achieve a unpopular partisan objective.  This is highly disturbing and in some ways, dangerous.  The American people do not want this health care bill and they certainly don’t want the democratic process turned on its head in an effort to pass it over their objections.”

Here’s part of the statement Republicans on the House Rules Committee released on the matter:

Not only would this be an astoundingly byzantine and cynical attempt to advance a bill that no one, including House Democrats, wants or likes, it could very well backfire.

The Slaughter Solution depends upon the Senate’s acting to pass a package of fixes to a bill that can’t garner sufficient support in the House.  But the likelihood a clean “fix-it” bill passing the Senate is slim.  There will be challenges to some proposed fixes, and therefore changes to the package.  There are also questions as to whether or not a bill can be “fixed” under the Budget Act before it is signed into law by the President.  And then there is the question of abortion.  If an abortion change cannot be made through reconciliation, would the Slaughter Solution be further expanded to implement an abortion fix, too?  How would that fix make its way through the Senate?

With serious unanswered questions like these, why would any wavering Democrat take the bait and support the Slaughter Solution?  There is a high probability that House Democrats ultimately will be forced into taking the tough votes they tried so hard to avoid, after putting themselves on record as supporting an end-run around a real, transparent vote.  In the end, rank-and-file Democrats would be making themselves all the more vulnerable for having supported their Leadership’s egregious tactics…

Pelosi clears House schedule for full Dem conference to twist arms for health care vote…

Video update: Michele Bachmann R-MN on the closed door House Dem arm twisting conference on health care

Hugely important to call your critters today. Pelosi has cleared the schedule to have a meeting with the entire Democratic caucus and present them with her plan to ram ahead on the health care vote …

…A closed-door meeting in House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office Wednesday evening moved congressional leaders and administration officials close to agreement on such issues as additional subsidies to help lower-income families purchase health insurance and more aid for states under the Medicaid program for low-income Americans.

Democrats still need to see a final cost estimate from the Congressional Budget Office — and want to ensure it stays around $950 billion over 10 years — but they made plans to begin to read the bill to rank-and-file Democrats at a caucus meeting Thursday.

“We’re going to get started,” Pelosi, D-Calif., said after her meeting with White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., and other key officials. Some unanswered questions remain, Pelosi said, “but we’re hoping that we’ll get those answered over the course of the reading. It’s not much.”…

…meanwhile out on the ‘campaign trail’ Obama says he is ‘tired of talking about ‘ health carenewsflash Mr President, so is America. MOVE ON, accept your loss, show some grace and move on…

McCain – Scott Brown Rally Phoenix

Welcome SonoranAlliance readers!!

Barry Goldwater Jr made a big point that McCains seniority in the Senate gives AZ an important voice, and that we were the only state to have two Senators at that Healthcare PR stunt the WH pulled….Fife mentioned MAC was a big mentor to him early in his career. Given the amount of people MAC has coming in to bat for him and fundraising this soon before the primary (Aug) it looks like MAC will have the nomination sewn up. Can we get a promise he wont vote for cap n trade or amnesty ??

Couple pics now, video manyana, all that I had on me was the old the fuji camera, rest on camcorder…will fix pics up a bit too and repost …

Barry Goldwater Jr John McCain Rally 03052010

Hey!!! whats shakin!!??

11:48 am AZ Time/ 1:48 EST: we are in the first row of bleachers waiting for John McCain and Scott Brown!

yay!

2:00pm EST- Hey I just read on HA that BYRD says YES to reconciliation? the frakker, he is the guy who called the Big Dawg in 94 and said it would be INAPPROPRIATE to use on UHC??? WTF???

frakkers

I am going off live blog so I can woot! at scott brown, will be back!

4:00pm EST: Home again home again jiggity jig. There were a couple hundred folks at the rally. A good crowd for Friday morning a full 6 months before the GOP primary I’d say (August).

Scott Brown was gracious to Mac and waved off the standing O we tried to give him. A humble guy. Very sensible talk on deficit spending and how MAC was against waste and earmarks before it was ‘cool’, lol.

Barry Goldwater Jr and Fyfe Symington former AZ Gov introduced MAC.

MAC talked about the need for strong national security, reminded us we are in two wars and AfPak will be very tough but we must win (would be nice to hear TOTUS say that).

MAC talked about the reconciliation being unacceptable and that it would destroy the Senate. Talked about the 300,000 seniors in AZ on Medicare Advantage who will lose bennies under Obama plan…Encouraged us to call our Reps, said the House is where the next action will be and that the AZ Reps can stop the bill if they want to..promised to fight for AZ JOBS JOBS JOBS and keep us safe and fight the spending spree they are on in DC

Video and pics up later!

PS CNBC Chyron just reported Eric Massa DNY will resign eff TODAY?? WOOT! One less bell to answer…one less vote to count!

Reconciliation = Mob Rules

Update: As if to PROVE that he is indeed TOTALLY DISCONNECTED from the public perception, the chyron on CNBC now says Obama will appoint SEIU head ANDY STERN to the deficit reduction panel today!!! BWAAAAHAA!! UNION PENSION BAILOUT ANYONE? BWAAAAHAAA!!! Way to make it a total joke Obama!

If the Democratic leadership uses reconciliation I hope they are prepared for not only the backlash from voters, but for the future of the political system, since Dems will wind up in the wilderness for GENERATIONS….they will come after taxes next and not a voter in America will fail to connect them ramming through healthcare and higher taxes….GENERATIONS IN THE WILDERNESS for the party…..

@amandacarpenter Gallup poll finds Americans oppose reconciliation to pass health care 52% to 39%. 2/25 4:57 P.M. –

(PS if they use reconciliation and dont put in the Public Option their liberal base will be pixxed as all get out too! Double whammy, and IMO only Obama’s huge ego is still making this an issue. Move On, heh)
