Liberals makes up roughly 20% of the voting public, and they want health care right now no matter what the rest of the country thinks.
A liberal activist group on Tuesday night circulated a petition calling on congressional Democrats to pass healthcare reform using the controversial budget reconciliation tactic.
The Progressive Change Campaign Committee (PCCC) launched the effort after Republican Scott Brown was declared the winner of Massachusetts special Senate election to, giving the GOP its 41st vote to filibuster the healthcare overhaul.
“The loss of Ted Kennedy’s seat — due to a lack of enthusiasm among Democrats and Independents — sends a clear message to Congress,” the petition reads. “The Senate health care bill is not the change we were promised in 2008, and it must be improved. The Senate must use ‘reconciliation’ to pass a better bill with a strong public option.”
It seems that the Peoples’ Seat in Massachusetts STILL BELONGS TO DEAD KENNEDY and the public option which would totally bankrupt the country is being pushed for.
Meanwhile, democratic lawmakers are getting more and more uneasy; I wonder why?
In many ways the campaign in Massachusetts became a referendum not only on health care reform but also on the openness and integrity of our government process. It is vital that we restore the respect of the American people in our system of government and in our leaders. To that end, I believe it would only be fair and prudent that we suspend further votes on health care legislation until Senator-elect Brown is seated.
Not gonna happen though, this is what the leadership is doing:
Democratic leaders are scrambling to save healthcare reform legislation in the wake of a shocking Republican victory for the Senate seat held by the late Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.).
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) met Tuesday afternoon to discuss contingency plans in case state Sen. Scott Brown (R) defeated state Attorney General Martha Coakley (D).
The House Democratic Caucus then met shortly after 7 pm Tuesday to discuss the progress of healthcare negotiations with the Senate and White House.
If the progressives weren’t in such a hurry to take control of every aspect of our lives, I could almost feel sorry for them as they race around like cockroaches with the lights turned on. The longer they continue to ignore the will of the people, the worse it is going to get.
