    Owens NY-23 Plans to Vote for Health Reform Bill

    http://www.myabc50.com/news/local/story ... t7O4g.cspx

    Thanks Rush Limbaugh, Thanks Glenn Beck, Thanks Sarah Palin, Thanks Tim Pawlenty, Thanks Rick Santorum, Thanks Fred Thompson, Thanks "conservatives", you just gave Nancy Pelosi another YES on her communist health care reform bill with Bill Owens, instead of the guaranteed NO we had with Dede Sozzafava.

    Republicans, please do not do this any more. Do not abandon your Republican candidate because of lies, distortions and misrepresentations spewed forth by a disgruntled loser who didn't get the Republican nomination and decided to jump ship to the open borders, free trade treason crowd at the Conservative Party funded by Club for Growth.

    Sure. What did Hoffman and his supporters think she was going to do? Support a social conservative funded by Club for Growth and the Susan B Anthony List PAC who lied about her position on health care, cap and trade and taxation on national television for over 10 days straight before the election?

    Uuuh ... nope.

    This is an inane argument.

    The reason Owens (narrowly) won is because of the fecklessness of the Republican Party leadership, who tried to foist an intolerable candidate onto upstate voters without so much as a party primary.

    Glen Beck and Rush Limbaugh have nothing to do with that.

    What was intolerable to you or anyone else about Dede Scozzafava who opposed Pelosi/ObamaCare, who opposed cap and trade, who opposed tax increases and who would vote the party line on amnesty/shamnesty?

    Owens -- health care--

    Did anyone expect him to do otherwise/? It also illustrates , again, Dede's left leaning positions. I believe that had she been elected she would be the Olympia Snowe of NY.

    What were the numbers before Hoffman jumped in?

    You have to remember, that Conservatives are NOT WANTED by the Party leadership, but the BASE wants CONSERVATIVES, not MCCAIN KNOCK OFFS

    The RINO republican was pro-abortion, pro-gay rights.

    Hoffman showed remarkable gain.


    So, what were the Democrats numbers before Hoffman. He entered about 2 weeks too late.

    This is what it is going to come down to. Conservatives, or Democrats, the RINOS need to GO!

    Rinos will support open borders etc. They need to GO, if the 'Republicans' can't wake up and smell the coffee, then F em, this 'Republican' was a Democrat in drag.

    ALL the Republican Party leadership needs to be tossed. Go dress up in drag and join the Democrat party.

    No, no, no! Hoffman didn't enter the race 2 weeks ago. He entered the race as a Conservative over 2 MONTHS ago on August 7, 2009 after he lost the Republican nomination to Dede Scozzafava. Dede had this election won HANDS DOWN over both the Democrat and Conservative until about 2 weeks ago when Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Sarah Palin, Fred Thompson, Rick Santorum and Tim Pawlenty decided to use their national names, press coverage and/or endorsements to spread lies, misrepresentations and distortions about the voting record and positions of Dede Scozzafava to support a Conservative candidate, Doug Hoffman, instead of Dede, the Republican candidate. She was duly and properly selected in accordance with state law for special elections in New York, the same way Bil Owens was selected.

    Owens wins of course, after the national hoop-blah from the out of staters, and Obama points to Owens win in his pitch today to reassure Democrats that supporting health care reform will not hurt them in the 2010 races:

    "stein@huffingtonpost.com | HuffPost Reporting

    "Obama Points To Bill Owens To Pitch Health Care Reform

    "Hoping to pull together the needed Democratic support to get health care reform through the House of Representatives, President Barack Obama urged members to look at the results of New York's special congressional election for inspiration.

    "The president, according to a senior Democratic aide who attended his discussion, told House Dems that newly-elected Rep. Bill Owens proved that members could run on a platform of comprehensive reform and still be elected to Congress.

    ""He said to look at Bill Owens," the aide recalled. "There is a House seat that's been in Republican hands for more than one hundred years. But Owens didn't run away from reform. He campaigned on it. And he still got elected."

    "The remarks were part of a broader political push on the president's behalf to buck up recalcitrant Democrats nervous about backing health care legislation. Obama also told members that they shouldn't expect simply not to be attacked by Republicans if they voted against the reform package.

    ""He certainly talked about the politics and he said that the Republicans want us to fail and no one should feel if they as a Democrat helped us to fail that they would be [free of their attacks]," said Rep. Henry Waxman, chair of the powerful Ways and Means Committee.

    "House aides said they believe the president helped persuade a handful of fence-sitting Democrats to support the bill. Though they cautioned that the whip count was fluid, especially as the House considers an amendment to tighten restrictions on the coverage of abortion by insurers.

    "One strategist off the Hill, who is plugged into the debate, proclaimed at 1:15 p.m. that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi did now have the votes for passage. The number of yeas, the source said, was roughly 220 - just two more than is needed for passage.

    ""The caveat," the source said, "is that Pelosi isn't going to let it get higher than that. She's whipping enough to win the vote but going to release the rest of the caucus to vote no.""
