UPDATE: At 2015 PST (2315 EST), 220 nauseating a**holes voted to pass the Botox Beyotch's pile of crap Healthscare. They are there on the floor of the House applauding like loons over their triumph..
..including - as scuttlebutt would have it - one lone republican voting with the 220. Enjoy it while you can, cretins, you are toast next November. I am personally going to find out who the Republican is and make sure he is gone.
Wiki on Cao says, among other things:
House GOP members were particularly vocal in their glee over Cao's defeat of the Democrat. Among many other statements, House minority leader John Boehner asserted Cao's win as "a symbol of our future" in a memorandum with The Future Is Cao as its subject line.So, even though this clown is in a heavy Democrat district, he could be up there along with Suzzy-Fava-Beans in the pantheon of GOP heroes.
I am sure there's a lot of unpacking to do on this vote -- particularly Cao's - but for the moment let me giv a hearty shout-out to Chairman Mike Steele and John Boehner for keeping all of their troops in line.
..some future Mike.
RETURN OF SON OF UPDATE: James Cao's office phone number is (202) 225-6636 and - as of 2035 PST his phone mail box is full. However, his office will be open 0900-1800 EST Monday through Friday. I counsel a telephonic visit (polite yet firm) advising him that there will be a massive backlash for his gratuitous support of this crap bill.
..elections and votes have consequences.
