As of 4:52pm ET, via Phillip Klein at American Spectator.
As expected, the House Budget Committee just rubber stamped the “shell” health care bill with a 21 to 16 vote, sending it to the Rules committee, where all of the language will be stripped out and replaced with whatever deals Democrats have been negotiating behind closed doors. . . .
Two Democrats — Reps. Allen Boyd and Chet Edwards — voted against the bill and would have to be considered firm nos at this point.
Good news and bad news I guess:
Good news: Two more "NO" votes on the albatross. Keep those NO votes coming!
Bad news: The Budget Committee didn't kill it.
But what's ya want for nothin'? A Ruubbbeerr Bissccuuiitt? Bow Bow Dodado Bowww...
PS: I can't resist, so here's your Monday edition the Blues Brothers. RIP Jake...
