We Have the Votes

The healthcare bill is going to be passed! We have the 216 votes needed to pass it in the House. After that, the Senate. This is a historic and brave step for Obama and the Democrats to be taking. In the future, the next presidents should further this goal of caring for the citizens and make a public system available to all taxpayers. This way, everyone gets cured.

“This bill is going to go through,” Representative Bart Stupak, the leader of the anti-abortion group, told reporters as he announced the deal with the White House. “We are well past 216.”
Stupak, who was joined at his announcement by six other abortion rights opponents, said he was satisfied Obama’s executive order would ensure current law banning the use of federal funds for abortion would not change under the healthcare overhaul.
