Default Democrats have 216 votes needed to pass health care reform

'We have the votes now' for health bill

chairman of House Democratic Caucus tells CNN.

=========

WASHINGTON - The chairman of the Democratic caucus in the House said on Sunday that his party had the 216 votes needed to pass President Barack Obama's historic health care bill.

Speaking on ABC's "This Week," Connecticut Rep. John Larson said, "We have the votes now as we speak."

IRS to become ObamaCare Gestapo

According to the House Ways and Means Committee, if ObamaCare passes, it will createabout 16,500 new IRS jobs to act as a health care police, enforcing some of the most intrusive and tyrannical provisions of this widely rejected and illegal take-over.

Under the legislation, thousands of agents will be sifting through our most intimate personal information, making sure that we have all made "acceptable" health care choices. The IRS will also be able to fine us up to $2,250 or 2% of our annual income for failing to purchase Democrat-approved health insurance, and will be able to confiscate our tax returns to get the money.

If this passes, alot of Congress will lose their jobs soon.

At something good will come out it.

Health Care Rule Passes, Clearing Way for Final Approval

By Tory Newmyer
Roll Call Staff
March 21, 2010, 6:30 p.m.

Democrats passed the rule on their massive health care overhaul with votes to spare Sunday evening on a 224-206 vote, clearing the way for passage later in the night.

A deal reached Sunday afternoon between the White House and Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich.) and a band of Members opposed to abortion cleared the way for passage of the rule and the bill. President Barack Obama agreed to issue an executive order clarifying that no federal funding can be used to fund abortions.

I bet Stalin & Mao I mean Obama & Piglosi are happy that they've defeated, spited, & purposely harmed the american people. The people say they don't want these pigs deciding our health care treatment so they get more determined to pass it. Doesn't purposely going against the will of the people and harming them just to ram through your sound a lot like communism?

Our small business is right there with ya, man. We're barely staying in business as is. Only thing we can do is take the wait and see approach.

LOL. That was funny Mach.

Yes, unfortunately we have no freedom or choice here.

It is being forced down our throats whether the majority want it or not.
