Overturning ObamaCare: Half Way There?

Posted by The MaryHunter at July 8, 2010 6:40 PM

Since mid-June, a concerted effort has been underway in the House of Representatives to dispatch with ObamaCare using a discharge petition. Which means, there is actually hope for change.

Congressional officials said Pelosi, an adamant advocate for government-controlled health care, never would allow a vote on a plan to overturn Obamacare. But through the discharge petition process in the House, if a majority of members sign on, she cannot stop it.
The fact that support is required from 218 members also means any plan thus endorsed likely would pass the 435-member House.

If 109 more congressfolk sign, not even Nasty Pelousy could prevent a new vote. With public sentiment resoundingly against ObamaCare, who knows -- maybe representatives would actually vote to represent their constituents -- this being a contentious election year and all, with Democrats rather much on the short end of things.

Check to see if your representative has signed onto the resolution here. If they're not on the list, then call.

Will the witch doctor be leaving the building after all?
