Let’s see, 69 (of 258) House Democrats “have expressed opposition to the Speaker’s health care bill.” The party’s leadership may delay the vote slated for tomorrow on the bill as they struggle to find enough votes to pass it. No wonder they’re doing what they always do when they’re in a jam: blame Republicans.
Yeah, but if Republicans are so divided, um, how come they’re unified in opposing this big-government boondoggle?
As a further sign of discontent on the right, er, left, let’s not forget that
left-wing activist group MoveOn.org began sending out emails seeking contributions to fund primary challenges against any Democratic senator who does not fully support “health care reform with a public option.” Now there’s an update: MoveOn executive director Justin Ruben says the group has raised $3,578,117 for the project and is thinking of new ways to punish errant Democratic lawmakers.
They need to find a way to get those moderates to toe the Pelosi party line. Wonder if CNN plans to run any articles on the divided Democrats. ‘Cause when it comes to partisan unrest, that’s the real story this week.
