Health Care Vote, and Coburn on Vote-Sellers

U.S. Senator Tom Coburn, in Washington, D.C. on Thursday:

The latest news from Washington shows that the House Democrats are dropping plans to "Deem" the Senate version of the health care legislation as passed; it looks like they actually will be voting on the bill Sunday.

Currently, the vote is too close to call - Nancy Pelosi needs 216 votes, and current estimates put the 'yes' column at 210.

Not to be gloomy, but I fear the passage of this legislation poses a great threat to our liberty, and will bring a dark future for our country. Pray for guidance for the members of Congress...

Coburn is right to challenge them on this. They may think they can hide what they are doing, but hopefully he and his staff will be able to let the rest of America know exactly how this goes down.

If you knew anything about the House or Senate, you'd know that where Sen. Coburn made those remarks weren't on the Senate floor. He made the comments in a press briefing room away from the Senate chamber. Get your facts right or don't call yourself a politico.

My apologies - I did not notice that mistake. Thanks for pointing it out!
