US House passes PelosiCare on 220-215 vote

Here’s a good summary of what happened in the historic debate and vote today and tonight on PelosiCare.  Our friends at Americans United for Life did an extraordinary job in securing a pro-life amendment–the Stupak/Pitts amendment that restricts federal funding for abortions (with some exceptions) in this bill.   Unfortunately, even with the amendment, this is a disastrous piece of legislation and has more to do with a seismic shift in who we are as a people than it does with “reforming” health care.

Bottom line:  Liberal Democrats received two more votes than the minimum required to move this socialist approach to health care forward.  It passed 220-215, with one Republican voting for it.  Now the attention will shift to the Senate. 

Wisconsin Family Action did extensive Facebook/Twitter updates, as well.

    THIS LESIGLATION HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH HEALTH
    CARE REFORM.

    THIS BILL MUST BE KILLED NOW. THEY MUST START OVER TO
    FIX HEALTH CARE WITHOUT BANKRUPTING OUR COUNTRY
    OR ALLOWING GOVERNMENT TO HAVE ANY PART IN OUR
    HEALTH CARE.

    Mr. Obama stated he would not sign a healthcare bill that would add one dime to the federal deficit. Do you think he remembers?
