Even if Coakley loses, Dems may still pass Obamacare
In a previous post, it was explained that the Democrats need 60 Senate votes to pass Obamacare, but if they lose a special election in Massachusetts on Tuesday, and there are growing signs they may well, then they’ll come up one short. But now they’re coming out and saying they’ll only need 51 votes by using a process called reconcilliation.
The bloke saying it is Van Hollen, who also mentioned the following:
“Why would you hand the keys to the car back to the same guys whose policies drove the economy into the ditch and then walked away from the scene of the accident?” Van Hollen said. “For the Republicans to say vote for us and bring back the guys who got us into this mess in the first place, I don’t think it’s a winner.”
The Republicans stuffed the economy back before the election?
The unions won’t have to pay Obama’s mega health tax for almost a decade.
Meanwhile, back on Friday, Democrat big guy, Barney Frank said, “If Scott Brown wins, it’ll kill the health bill.”
But that was Friday, and Van Hollen came out with his garbage today.
Regardless, Obi still has the jitters, and is travelling to Massachusetts (I love spell check) on (US) Sunday to wield his purple prose on the blue-come-green state.
Stay classy Democrats:
New York Sen. Charles Schumer, who famously hammered then-Sen. Alfonse D’Amato for calling him a “putz-head” in their hot 1998 campaign, was accused Thursday of stepping into the gutter himself after he sent out a fundraising e-mail in which he called Massachusetts Republican Senate candidate Scott Brown a “far-right tea-bagger.”
The two-term Democrat, in accusing Brown of being aligned with the conservative “tea party” movement, used a term that every tea party critic knows refers to a sexual act.
Barney Frank has ruled out any reconcilliation process. Good… didn’t expect that.
