Late yesterday afternoon, the Senate passed the Obama budget
with massive tax increases, a doubling of the national debt
and fast-track provisions for socialized healthcare.
The vote was 53-43, which means we fell just four votes short
of stopping it.
Yesterday, we identified the 12 key Democrats who had voiced
opposition to fast-tracking. Several specifically signed a
letter opposing use of this procedural trickery to pass the
carbon tax and “Roll Call” magazine said many of these also
opposed fast-tracking for healthcare.
In all, 9 of the 12 we identified voted in favor of fast-tracking
And we’re naming names:
Senator Max Baucus 202-224-2651
Senator Mark Begich 202-224-3004
Senator Robert Casey 202-224-6324
Senator Daniel Inouye 202-224-3934
Senator Amy Klobuchar 202-224-3244
Senator Mary Landrieu 202-224-5824
Senator Carl Levin 202-224-6221
Senator Blanche Lincoln 202-224-4843
Senator Mark Pryor 202-224-2353
