Whip Count on House Health Care Bill

The vote on Speaker Pelosi’s 2,000-page, $1 trillion-plus plan for government-run health care – still scheduled for later today – is coming down to the wire.  Several Members of Congress are saying and the media is reporting that the Speaker still doesn’t have the necessary 218 votes for passage – despite her working through the night to strike backroom deals with so-called moderate Democrats.

The vote, whether it happens tonight or is delayed for a day or two, is going to be close.  As many as 23 House Democrats have vowed to join with all Republicans to vote against the bill.  There are several Democrats still on the fence.

The Hill has this updated whip count of key Dems and their positions on the bill. 

The American people must keep the pressure on their Representatives in Congress to vote “No” on the Pelosi-Obama government-run health care scheme.  We can defeat it!

CFIF staff is heading down to the U.S. Capitol now to join with thousands of Americans to rally against the bill.  If you live in the Washington, D.C.-area, please join us at the event, the details of which can be found here.

Keep calling, writing and faxing your Representatives in opposition to the House bill.  Ask your neighbors, friends and family members to do the same.  We are winning.  We can win.  And, we will win if we all do our part to turn up the heat in opposition to government-run health care.
