We Must Deform Health Care!

I join with Carol at No Sheeples Here! in hoping that the failure of Obama Care is the president's Waterloo.

Meanwhile, Stacy McCain reminds us that We the People have a lot more power than we sometimes think.

And according to the Washington Times, what began with an almost hysterical sense of urgency ended with a shrug.

Dunno if I would start counting all those chickens yet.

Both houses are going to be working all during the break and they will probably have bills ready when Congress comes back. They also have time to bring terror right into the face of each Blue Dog. Based upon prior votes there are only seven to ten real Blue Dogs.

So there is some chance that they will have bills ready to vote on AND sufficient time to break enough Blue Dogs to bring about a vote in a few days after the recess is concluded.

I think it would be foolish to think that they have folded up their tents and gone home. This is one of those big wetdreams of the left. They have been working towards this for too long, and the power stakes are jsut too high, to just give up, I'm thinking.

More than happy to be proven wrong!

Yojimbo: I don't think anybody believes this fight is over; certainly, Republicans better not get that idea.

Of course the fight isn't over. It's just going to come down to who has the most leverage: Don Barry and his consiglieri, or the unhappy voters who will produce carnage in 2010 if their wishes are ignored.

Also, I think the Prez has done himself no favors in slapping at the Cambridge police (thus, police in general) over the Gates affair. They vote, too.

I wrote my senators (Dhimmicratic crapweasels, both of them ) about this, and I'll write 'em again. But they never venture outside of the blue counties in this state, so I'm not able to wave a flag in their face when they flit about, impressing the hippies.

Not that they would get the message, mind you. But I would do it.
