In case you haven’t already heard, the House of Representatives is expected to vote on a massive federal takeover of the nation’s health care system tomorrow. While Nancy Pelosi and many in the Democratic Party leadership have put forward a confident face saying that they have the 218 votes necessary to pass it, the truth is that the vote will be very close and that no one knows at this point whether the votes are there.
More information on the bills and contact information for your representatives can be found here. The bill being voted on is HR 3962. If you want to see my discussion with Rep. Martin Heinrich at his health care town hall, check that out here.
