Democrats Seeking to Push Health Bill Through House

WASHINGTON — The White House and Democratic Congressional leaders, scrambling for a backup plan to rescue their health care legislation if Republicans win the special election in Massachusetts on Tuesday, are preparing to ask House Democrats to approve the Senate version of the bill, which would send the measure directly to President Obama for his signature.

A victory by the Republican, Scott Brown, in Massachusetts, would deny Democrats the 60th vote they need in the Senate to surmount Republican filibusters and advance the health legislation. And with the race too close to call, Democrats are mulling several options to save the bill, which could be a major factor in how they fare in this year’s midterm elections.

Some Democrats suggested that even if their candidate, Martha Coakley, eked out a narrow victory on Tuesday, they might need to ask House Democrats to speed the legislation to the president’s desk, especially if lawmakers who previously supported the bill begin to waver as they consider the political implications of a tough re-election cycle. It is unclear if rank-and-file Democrats would go along.

There are going to be quite a few nervous Dems AND Pubs soon.

Even as Democratic leaders pondered their contingency plans, the House speaker, Nancy Pelosi, insisted that the health care legislation would move forward one way or another, though she acknowledged that Tuesday’s results could force a tactical shift.

“Certainly the dynamic will change depending on what happens in Massachusetts,” Ms. Pelosi told reporters in California on Monday. “Just the question of how we would proceed. But it doesn’t mean we won’t have a health care bill.”

“Let’s remove all doubt,” she added. “We will have health care one way or another.”

QUEEN NANCY HAS SPOKEN!

  1. It just gets me so riled that our poor military guys are being prosecuted and court marshaled for doing their job above and beyond the call of duty and these perpetrators of a freak show are allowed to run our country further into the ground. Why the h*** are they not in prison!!!

  2. 19% unemployment in MASS and they are worried about the deathcare bill? 50% unemployment in MI and they are concerned about getting the deathcare bill through? 25% unemployment in OR and they are worried about pushing through the deathcare? What is wrong with these buffoons? Oh, that’s right, they want it this way.
