Already, 23 Dems have said they will vote ?no? on healthcare reform - TheHill.com
At least 23 House Democrats already have told constituents or hometown media that they oppose the massive healthcare overhaul touted by President Barack Obama.
If Republicans offer the blanket opposition they’ve promised, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) can afford to lose only 38 members of her 256-member caucus and still pass the bill.
Most Democrats opposed to healthcare reform argue it costs too much, imposes a new tax and fines businesses that don’t provide insurance to employees. Some fear that the bill would subsidize abortion.
It looks as if the town hall protesters are having an impact. This bill seems to be dying a good death, slowly but surely...
We can not afford it, and we can not pay for it.
Even if Obama gets his way and raises the "Debt ceiling"
