from America’s Right:
So where do we go from here?
It’s by no means certain that this monstrosity will pass in the Senate. The longer the debate lasts, the less chance it has of passing. Pelosi knew this, which is why she broke her pledge to have it online for 72 hours before a vote. If the American people had enough time to peruse through the 2,000 legislative Goliath they would have found more than enough reasons to oppose it.
So Jeff’s analysis is correct: the only reason this bill got passed is that in the euphoria of passing the Stupak amendment (which banned funding for abortions) conservatives let their guards down. I don’t think this was a deliberate strategy from the Democrats, but it doesn’t matter. When you want to sell something for $25 you set the price at $30. Then, when you come down $5, the other guy feels like he’s getting a deal. That’s what happened here.
It’s going to come down to timing again in the Senate. Right now the Democrats have the momentum because they won in the House. The glory of victory fades quickly in Washington, however, and then attention will turn back to the bill itself. The faster we can get people to focus on the facts instead of the rhetoric the faster we can sap support for this bill.

There are reports of twelve people being arrested at Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office.
Initial reports say that several people were arrested for “unlawful” inside of the room, several more for “unlawful conduct” in the hallway outside, and two for disorderly conduct in the hall. It will be interesting to see the video footage on these arrests, since you know that the videophones were catching it all….. or was that the “unlawful conduct.”
Earlier today, before the gathering on the Capitol steps, nine people in SUPPORT OF universal healthcare were arrested in Sen. Lieberman’s office for disrupting his office.

Personally, I think Andrea should take time of to enjoy her aging husband’s retirement. After all, Alan Greenspan is now 83!!

The Worst Bill Ever
Epic new spending and taxes, pricier insurance, rationed care, dishonest accounting: The Pelosi health bill has it all.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi has reportedly told fellow Democrats that she’s prepared to lose seats in 2010 if that’s what it takes to pass ObamaCare, and little wonder. The health bill she unwrapped last Thursday, which President Obama hailed as a “critical milestone,” may well be the worst piece of post-New Deal legislation ever introduced.
In a rational political world, this 1,990-page runaway train would have been derailed months ago. With spending and debt already at record peacetime levels, the bill creates a new and probably unrepealable middle-class entitlement that is designed to expand over time. Taxes will need to rise precipitously, even as ObamaCare so dramatically expands government control of health care that eventually all medicine will be rationed via politics.
Yet at this point, Democrats have dumped any pretense of genuine bipartisan “reform” and moved into the realm of pure power politics as they race against the unpopularity of their own agenda. The goal is to ram through whatever income-redistribution scheme they can claim to be “universal coverage.” The result will be destructive on every level—for the health-care system, for the country’s fiscal condition, and ultimately for American freedom and prosperity.
