“”They don’t now have the votes for it and I sure hope they won’t.”

Saturday, March 20, 2010  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

That’s Congressman Paul Ryan after today’s proceedings.

The abandonment of “deem scheme” by its Dream Team of Obama-Pelosi-Slaughter is a huge win whether or not House Democrats break enough arms to get to 216 tomorrow. It will place every yes vote on the side of the Senate bill without any guarantee of ever seeing any change. Accountability will come in November.

And the rank-and-file have to be wondering about the incompetence of their leadership which led them into that box canyon and to the vote –which cannot be reversed– to uphold the assault on the Constitution to begin with.

Ohio’s Zach Space declared himself a “no” today and I’d like to thank all of the people who have pounded him for the last week. Please drop down to the posts below and keep calling. Or use this list from’s “Critical Care” blog.

It will come down to whether the Democrats who called themselves “pro-life” for years really are that way.

You cannot be pro-life and vote for this bill. And on that point there will be no debate come the fall either.

This Washington Post headline from the landing page of their web site says it all
. Keep calling the list in the post below, starting with Ohio’s Zack Space. Tell Space you have contributed to Boccieri’s Republican opponent Jim Renacci, and that you will do the same to Space’s opponent if Space votes for Obamacare.

K-Lo also points to four Stupak coalition members who need calling, though I doubt very much that Marcy Kaptur will stand firm despite her long time posturing as a pro-life Democrat:

Berry (202) 225-4076

Cueller 202-225-1640

Kaptur(202) 225-4146

Rahall (202) 225-3452


The Boccieri Backflip

Friday, March 19, 2010  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

Ohio Democrat John Boccieri abandoned his alleged “pro-life” position and his “no” vote in the fall to announce his support for Nancy Pelosi and Obamacare this morning

You can best respond with a contribution to his fall opponent Jim Renacci. The call Boccieri and tell him what you did. Boccieri’s toll free number is (800) 826-9015.

Here’s the list of “on the fence” Democrats sent to me by a friendly House office. All of them can be reached via the Hill switchboard at 202-225-3121 or 202-224-3121. Their individual office numbers are listed below. Hit them hard with a demand for a “no” vote.

I will close this post with another appeal for money –for Craig Miller who is running against Susan Kosmas in Florida. You can donate online here. When you call Kosmas’ office to urge a no vote, tell them you sent a contribution to Miller and there’s more where that came from if she votes “yes” this weekend.
