Democrats Say They Have Enough Votes To Pass President Obama’s Historic Health Care Bill

- By Bossip Staff Categories: Bolitics, News

216 is the magic number:

Democrats have the 216 votes needed to pass health care reform legislation in the House on Sunday, the chairman of the House Democratic Caucus told CNN. “This is a historic day and we are happy warriors,” Rep. John Larson, D- Connecticut, told CNN’s “State of the Union.” He added, “We’ve got the votes.”
But the chief deputy whip in the House, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Florida, cautioned, “We don’t have a hard 216 right now.” Schultz made the statement to “Fox News Sunday” just as Larson was speaking to CNN. Wasserman Schultz added, “I firmly believe we will have 216.”

“This fight is not lost, yet,” said House Minority Leader John Boehner on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” Former President Bill Clinton made several phone calls Saturday to lobby wavering Democrats to sign on to the health care reform bill, Democratic sources told CNN. Clinton made calls to an unspecified number of House Democrats on Saturday as leaders tried to round up the 216 necessary votes to pass the bill. On Saturday, President Obama made his last appeal for the reform, telling House Democrats on the eve of the historic vote: “Let’s get this done.”

    Let me state that I dont think I am better than anyone else here, just a little better informed.

    I was once a victim of the tv and lived in a complete differenct world than I do now.

    It is scarey once you realize how skilled the machine is at getting people to back them based on what they put out in the media.
