Fearing the Will of the American People, Democ rats’ Illegal Plan to Nationalize Healthcare – Atlas Shrugs
This is what the Dems have fallen to. What utter contempt of the will of the people.
Do the American people see the Dems for what they are? Could the Dems’ contempt for the American people be any more naked? They spit on the Constitution. They spit on the rule of law. They spit on the will of the American people.
These are the actions of a statist ruling class. And this is a battle for the future of America. It is that huge.
Fearing Senate Loss, Democrats Weigh Health-Care Options Wall Street Journal
WASHINGTON—With the Massachusetts Senate seat unexpectedly in play, Democrats are weighing alternative scenarios for passing a health bill without their filibuster-proof majority.
Close Senate Race in Massachusetts

Congressional Democrats and the White House have rapidly stepped up the pace of negotiations on a final bill in the last 48 hours as polls showed a tightening race in Tuesday’s special election.
But Senate leaders need every one of the 60 votes they can call on—including two independents—to pass the bill. A Republican victory in Tuesday’s special Senate election would deprive them of that margin.
It’s also possible that vulnerable Democrats could bolt after a defeat, leaving more votes to make up. Even a narrow victory for Democratic contender Martha Coakley—in one of the nation’s bluest states—could unnerve fellow party members.
Maryland Rep. Chris Van Hollen, a member of the Democratic leadership circle in the House, acknowledged Friday the Massachusetts race would "complicate things if we lose."
Here are some scenarios should that come to pass:
Rep. Anthony Weiner (D., N.Y.), said many lawmakers have decided that, if she loses, the party would have no choice but to cram a plan through as quickly as possible, while working to delay Mr. Brown’s arrival to the Senate.
"We’re going to have to finish this bill and then stall the swearing-in as long as possible," Mr. Weiner said. "That’s our strategy, a hurry-up-and-stall strategy."
