URGENT: Please see my post below on “Blue Dogs.”
UPDATES: Mr. Obama is trying to push through his healthcare agenda at an alarming rate. He was quoted on several radio news shows July 14 as wanting to get it done before Congress recesses in the beginning of August. We cannot let this happen. It is urgent you take time to read this post in its entirety. Your future health may depend on it.
Rep. Charlie Rangel announced July 17, House Ways & Means Committee has passed HR 3200. The link is here.
Speaker Pelosi was quoted as saying on July 16; she wants to push the America’s Affordable Health Choices Act of 2009 H.R.3200 through before Congress recesses in the next 2 wks. For any of you who are masochists, the bill is linked here.
On July 15 Sen. Chris Dodd and his committee passed their version of the American National Security Act: AKA the Universal Health Care Bill. His interview is linked here. If you are so inclined, you may read the full text of the bill. This is before it was sent to committee. Remember, this will still be debated in the Senate, can be amended, items added and/or changed. Therefore, it is even more imperative for you to contact your Senators and ask them for a NO vote on this bill. Congress contact info is here. These are the Senators up for re-election in 2010. Tell them if they don’t vote NO, you will work hard to get them booted out of office.
The Senate is now in recess until Monday, July 20; to consider and to vote on a 70 page amendment to their “American National Security Act.”
Linked here is the CBO’s assessment letter to Rep. Charlie Rangel, containing their findings on how much this monstrosity will cost. It’s a large document, so may take some time to load.
This is an RNC Research briefing: “How Much Will it Cost?” You will be stunned.
Think you are confused now about how Mr. Obama and the Dems will run heathcare? Wait til you see this stunning chart from the GOP. Anyone who can figure it out gets a “prize.” Just another way to confuse us. Don’t be fooled! It’s a PDF doc and takes a moment to load, but it’s well worth the wait! And full color as well!

NOTE: I have come into possession of a letter written by the Blue Dogs to Speaker Pelosi and Majority Leader Hoyer dated July 9; regarding Healthcare. It is linked here. This is a PDF doc as well, and may take a moment to load. This letter is why it is urgent for those of you in Blue Dog districts to contact them immediately! Please see post below.
