“If there’s anything that Tuesday’s elections in New Jersey and Virginia showed us, it’s that the public is sick and tired of the Democrats’ reckless policies, like the government-run option, that create more government and not more jobs. By being the key votes for delivering government-run option to Nancy Pelosi, Melissa Bean, Bill Foster and Debbie Halvorson can kiss their hopes of re-election good-bye.” – Tom Erickson, NRCC spokesman, said in a statement late last night.
The House just passed their $1.2 trillion government takeover of healthcare by a slim margin of 220-215. Delivering the key votes for Nancy Pelosi’s government-run takeover of healthcare were Illinois’ Melissa Bean, Bill Foster and Debbie Halvorson. These Illini delivered the 218th, 219th and 220th votes to Nancy Pelosi; carrying the bill over the finish line just in the nick of time.
Today is the first day of the end of their terms in Congress.
