Thanks to Gabe Malor over at The Ace of Spades, we are given a public head count on those who have stated how they will vote on the abomination known as Obamacare.
There are a lot of caveats, but so far it appears that the numbers are in the negative for Jackass Nancy Pelosi and her Goon Squad to force a vote to pass the senate bill as is and hope some fixes are done later.
According to Gabe's numbers, Jackass Nancy has a count of 194 for the abomination. She needs 216. That puts her 12 short of the magic number.
Surprisingly to me, this may prove Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich) right. That Jackass Nancy is not even at 200 yes votes for the abomination.
But the Dems may have an Ace up their sleeves to avoid taking such a vote in the first place.
Jackass Nancy and the Goon Squad may simply claim that the senate bill "deem" passed as is. It is convoluted and has been used before by both parties. But never on such a piece of legislation.
Oh, and when people will talk about reconciliation and this potential procedure being used before, remind them that it was never on legislation that will affect every man, woman, transgendered, child, born and unborn, in the United States. Never, evah!
As more light is shed on this convoluted procedure, the harder it will be to try it in the first place.
Which leads back to where this will be going.
I stand by my predicition.
If there is an up-and-down vote on this abomination, it will fail by a vote of 210-220.
