    Make Them Vote On It, Anyway

    Make Them Vote On It, Anyway

    The Democratic leadership in the Senate has told Republicans in the House not to bother with repeal of Obamacare, any repeal bill will not get past the Senate.

    That’s old news, and certainly no reason not to pass legislation in the House.

    There are several vulnerable Democratic Senators up for reelection in 2012.  Make them vote on repeal of Obamacare as an entirety, and in pieces.

    And then run the advertisements early and often.

    Update:  Looks like there will be a repeal vote in the House as early as January 12.

    If Repubs don't force a vote to make it clear how libs really feel about Obamacare, they fail Politics 101.

    If the repeal is a standalone measure, Senate Democrats won't vote on it. They'll send it to a committee which won't even hold hearings.

    You may have a point despite that.

    Simply tie it to an omnibus spending bill. Isn't that what the Dems do?

    Someone suggested tying it to the debt ceiling vote.

    The *only* problem is a stand alone bill would never make it to the Senate floor for a vote.

    The Democrats would kill it in committee (The trick would be to force into as many committees as possible to force as many Dems as possible to vote against it).

    Although attempting to tie it to another bill (Omnibus budget bills) might work…

    Even if it never comes to an actual floor vote for all 100 Senators the GOP can at least claim the Democrats didn't allow an up or down vote on one of the most unpopular pieces of legislation.
