Public Option for Socialist Obama Care Fails In Senate Committee And What It Means For Florida

Tuesday, September 29, 2009 at 6:57pm | Edit Note | Delete
Senate Finance Committee Democrats failed to stick together, and with a solid wall of Republicans, Obama public option was set back. Read the whole story here

But what doe this mean for Florida Patriots? It means that if Obama care is going to be stopped, it's going to have to be done in the US Senate. And who does Florida have in the Senate? None other than two of the weakest sisters in that den of vipers. More importantly one of the senators that voted no today was Bill Nelson. This means that pressure will be unrelenting to get Nelson to 'come around.'

I'm on the email list of and they know that Nelson needs to feel heat from the left. We must answer that with even more fire from the right. I've studied politics for a long time. What is very likely to happen is that Nelson will cave to pressure and finally succumb to some form of the public option. That way he will be able to say in 2012 when he is up for election, "I did oppose socialist health care before I voted for it." But if we put on an unrelenting campaign we could just keep him from the dark side.

This is going to require a LOT of phone calls. A LOT of emails. Begin by reminding him that we made life so unbearable for Sen. Martinez that he couldn't even finish his first term! Please, don't leave this to someone else. The only reason ANY of the weak senators are reluctant to support the public option is because of the INTENSE pressure of the tea party movement.

Regional Offices are listed here. Call, but more importantly VISIT THEM PERSONALLY! Tell them that you are really upset about Obama care and want to register your discontent PERSONALLY. I've met several legislative aides (the guys you'll be meeting at the regional offices) and they all say that personal visits even to staffers, carry a lot of weight with 'The Boss.'
