The House today voted to pass the Jon Echols ‘Real ID’ compromise bill (HB1465). It advanced on nearly a straight party line vote. What we begin to see is a Democrat party trying one more time to evoke a parliamentary ‘hunger strike’. they refuse to support Republican measures of any type unless and until there is a vote to hike oil production taxes.

THE GOVERNOR’S OWN WORDS AND DEEDS HAVE COME BACK TO HAUNT HER

ObamaCare was passed by the Democrats on Christmas Eve 2009, so we could find out what was in the bill. It has been unpopular with the American people ever since. But since then it has become the ObamaCare entitlement. Now, despite all the people who lost their doctors. And all the people who lost their insurance coverage. Twenty million other people
Representatives Kevin McDugle and Carol Bush along with Sen. David Holt, have two bills nearing a floor vote, this week.(HB1468, HB1470) They are a lawyer’s dream. The two freshmen legislators teamed up to provide a proposed statute giving lawyers and plaintiffs up to 40+ years to file a lawsuit claiming, among other things, certain emotional damages suffered in childhood.

The Republicans are selling a health care plan with no mandates that you buy it. And they won’t turn you down if you have a pre-existing condition.
