Live Video Feed of House of Representatives Debate on Health Care Bill; Vote May Come Today - Live Video 11/7/09

ATTENTION: Go Here for Live Video of the House Vote Today on Passage of ObamaCare - March 21, 2010.




UPDATED 10:07 AM CT: The Republicans are doing their best to stop the Democratic attempt to ram the bill through the House. They are objecting at every turn and are forcing the Dems to appear to do what they are doing - ramming the bill down the throats of the American people.

Here is a live video feed of the House of Representatives preparing to debate the Democrats' massive Health Care Bill. As this is posted (9:31 am), the House is voting on a series of procedural issues and dispensing of some pending business to clear the way for debate on the bill followed by a vote on the bill. It is unclear when a final vote on the bill will take place.

It appears a vote on the House Health Care Bill could come later today as a result of an agreement last night to allow pro-life Democrats to offer an amendment today that would keep abortion from being paid for under the Democrats' "Public Option." They hope this will clear the way for a Final Vote.
The way has been cleared for a House vote Saturday on one version of the health care overhaul. President Barack Obama will make one last pitch for his signature legislation on Capitol Hill. Under a late-night agreement, abortion opponents will be given an opportunity to try and insert tougher restrictions into the legislation.
President Obama is also expected to go to Captiol Hill to lobby Democrats to support the bill.

NOTE: This shows the Democrats have been lying through their teeth for months. They have claimed again and again that their Health Care Plans would not pay for abortion. If that is true, why are they now allowing pro-life Dems to offer an amendment that would prohibit what they have said is not there to start with!

The Dems... Fall on your sword

The Obama "Health Care" Plan will strip all Americans of their choice of choosing their health providers. Look in the bill.. read it! The Federal government can take you and your corporations OFF of group policies which provide private health care and force you into a public system..... Socializing America.

What a croc of... Only when the Obama administration along with the Democrats have complete control over you, your family, your dog, will they rest. And what a nice rest it will be, for they will not be required to do anything but sternly glare at the people of this country when our pace slows in our new goal in life... the apeasement of the new rulers of the USSA. HAIL OBAMA! Change, change, change, change... Mmmm Mmmm Mmmm :(

Oh, come on! You can't have it both ways.

If the Dems agree to an amendment that prohibits abortion funding, you scream that it proves that abortions were going to be paid under the unamended bill. But if the Dems DON'T agree to an amendment, then you'd scream that the Dems are trying to protect funding for abortions.

What you have here is the Democrats agreeing to put on suspenders on the bill when it already has a belt.

You smell a loss, don't you, and you're desperately throwing anything within arm's reach against the wall, and hope it sticks.

Larry,
The fact pro-Life Democrats have insisted on being able to offer this amendment says they believe the current bill will provide funding for abortions - something Democrats have been saying for months is not funded.

In other words, these Democrats don't believe their own leadership who have been saying so.

Loss? Of course Americans are going to lose today. The Democrats have the White House and huge majorities in the House and Senate. They can pass whatever they want to pass. The fact they are having such a hard time doing it shows their legislation is so radical some of their own members are having a hard time supporting it.

Why don't all of you READ THE BILL, instead of giving useless commentary on what you do not understand! In 2013 a U.S. citizen will not be able to purchase private health insurance.... Page 204 of the Bill. Educate yourself as we are flushed into the sewer of Socialism.

Larry S November 7, 2009 at 5:03 PM  

No, it isn't that the bill is so radical. It's that so many of America's voters in blue dog states have the IQ of a turnip. The suspenders were added to the belt so that those incumbent blue dogs could go home and say "See? I made SURE abortions wouldn't be a'covered!"
.
The Hyde Amendment would have precluded funding abortion, as it has on every law for quite awhile. The amendment says we really REALLY won't fund abortions. Superfluous language at its best/worst

And page 204 doesn't say you cannot purchase private health insurance.. it's a simple grandfathering clause. But it's a good distractor for the rightwing community, to try to divert everybody's attention away from the GOP's obvious stall tactics.

Face it: rightwing Republicans aren't interested in ANY health care reform. They've got theirs, abd to hell with everybody else. The GOP controlled the Congress and the White House for 5 years of George W. Bush's term, and they never even attempted to reform squat.

Lary S.

Do you believe in the tooth fairy & Santa Clause too? When you have a government printing their own money and not having to turn a profit, it puts private companies out of business. It states in the bill that if, for any reason, your insurance is cancelled or changed, you MUST join the Government option. It is a shame that you read into it what you want to and turn your eyes away from what will damage your beloved Democratic party.

Are you the type of person living in your parents basement spending all day blogging for ACORN?

This is not only a fight for freedom, but a fight for the soul of this great nation.

Larry S November 7, 2009 at 9:04 PM  

"A fight for the soul of a great nation"? Lord, save us from rightwng teabaggers who fancy themselves as noble martyrs.
