Obama Pro-Abortion Health Care Reconciliation Bill Expected Monday, Then Summit

No matter how many people say they DON'T want it. Barry and the Dems are going to try to ram Obamacare through.

Call your Senators today!

Democrats in Washington are continuing to push for the controversial reconciliation strategy to railroad the pro-abortion government-run health care bill through Congress. And Republicans continue blasting the upcoming health care summit as a charade and "infomercial" for the bill.

Meanwhile, President Barack Obama is reportedly writing a revised health care bill that can be attached to a budget bill and receive approval in the Senate on a majority vote.

The idea behind the Obama bill, or a corrections measure that allows the House to adopt the pro-abortion Senate bill, is to rely on the reconciliation process to get around the Republican filibuster and make it so only 51 votes are needed to approve the bill.

As reported, Obama officials said the bill may be ready by the weekend and now they have updated their prediction by saying it will be posted on the Internet on Monday morning.

"It will be a reconciliation bill," the new York Times quoted a top Democratic staffer as saying. "If Republicans don't come with any substantial offers, this is what we would do."
