“Obamacare as we know is a crown jewel of socialism.” “We will not stop til we repeal the President.”
–Michelle Bachmann

WASHINGTON — The newly muscular House Republicans voted Wednesday to overturn President Obama’s health care overhaul — a move that is largely symbolic because the Democratic-controlled Senate is poised to ignore it while Obama is certain to veto it should it somehow pass through Congress.

The House passed the bill 245-189 with three Democrats — Reps. Mike Ross, Dan Boren and Mike McIntyre –joining the Republican effort.

House Republicans Overturn ‘ObamaCare’

Gov. Mitch Daniels on Obamacare’s Devastating Consequences –Indiana has been a leader in health care reform under Governor Mitch Daniels, but the passage of Obamacare threatens much of that good work. Now, Governor Daniels is speaking out and urging his fellow governors to take a serious look at the threat posed by Obamacare.

~ Ironic when I went to look up Senate Rule 14 – Rules Committee on the Senate website, it has been removed!

NOTE the redirect , I then put it in a search and no luck.

BUT when I get angry at Reid’s sneaky tactics (like not allowing a vote on Repeal) I persevere:

The “third reading” occurs before a vote on final passage

* The “third reading” occurs after Senate consideration of a measure and before the vote on final passage. See U.S. Congress, Senate, Riddick’s Senate Procedure, S.Doc. 101-28, 101st Cong., 2nd sess. (Washington: GPO, 1992), pp. 1290-1291 (hereafter Riddick’s Senate Procedure). See especially Senate Rule XIV, para. 6.

PDF: Routes to the Senate Floor: Rule XIV and Unanimous Consent. Which means Reid has NO choice but to allow it for a vote. Would the GOP be pushing Rule 14 if they did not believe they had the votes for Repeal? Your guess is as good as mine. I did JUST here on Cavuto from a Tea Party leader that the GOP in fact is going to Call Reid out on Rule 14 though.

Neil is saying that the votes are slightly behind to get the Repeal passed but I take solace in the word ‘slight’.

Rep. Broun on 4-point program replace Obamacare


~ I resent the constant reference to ‘symbolic’. They did what they were voted to do. Reid is not. How much more simple can it get than this? ~JP

An explosion took place in Moody Wednesday morning after about 20 ounces of suspicious liquid was found behind a home on Old Hannah Road.

Officials from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms said the liquid was possibly nitro glycerin, a highly unstable and highly explosive liquid.

The liquid was found over the weekend when the home’s owner was cleaning out her garage. Her late husband had kept a workshop in the space with several guns and firearms.

She had recently sold the home and was cleaning out the garage when she spotted the liquid and called officials.

ATF agents and the Jefferson County Bomb Squad were called in and dug a 12 to 20 foot hole in the yard. The liquid was put into the hole, covered with sand and then detonated, created a loud booming sound.

Residents in a 1500 square foot radius were evacuated from their homes Wednesday morning and were allowed to return just before 1 p.m.

ATF agents said they think the liquid is believed to be more than 50 years old and because it hadn’t been made in such a long time, they called in for assistance. Authorities brought explosive experts from Atlanta and took pictures of the liquid to send to other experts around the country for their input.

The Red Cross was on site to help provide assistance for those evacuated from their homes.
