Bravo Senate GOP!

Some progress though it is unclear how much of the federal government takeover of the student loan business has been stopped.

Start hammering the House members again,, and the Democrats in the Senate. Now that the bill has to go back to the House there is no reason why the very compelling GOP amendments ought not to be accepted.

If the Senate GOP can keep the amendment machine rolling for the next few days, the House members will get an earful when they get back to their districts.

Ohio’s John Backflip Boccieri –who voted for Obamacare Sunday after opposing it in the fall– is among the Democrats getting hammered hardest. His likely GOP opponent Jim Renacci is getting a huge flow of campaign contributions, which you can add to here.

Tom Lucero is running in Colorado’s 4rth against another Democratic backflipper, Betsy Markey. You can contribute to Lucero here.

Larry Sabato has identified the “tenuous twenty” –the 20 Democrats who voted for Obamcare despire holding seats in districts carried by John McCain:

The Tenuous Twenty

What the NRCC needs to do is identify those races where there is a clear GOP frontrunner –the NRCC must stay clear of races where competitive primaries exist like Colorado’s 4rth– and help the new activists engage with the GOP nominees in these districts as well as the 26 other districts which McCain carried but in which a Democrat sits, especially if that Democrat voted to defend the Slaughter Solution, not to mention cap-and-tax and the stimulus.

Oh, speaking of all the high-fives Democrats have been giving each other —John Hinderaker has the numbers from the latest Rasmussen poll: 55% of voters want Obamcare repealed. The public understands what a massive power grab this is and how it greatly punishes seniors.
