When one is considering the health care debate at hand, understanding the November vote in the House of Representatives is crucial to realizing the ultimate truth that Democratic proposals on health care legislation are doomed to unavoidable failure. Since the legislation passed with 220 Representatives voting for and 215 Representatives voting against, the dynamics have changed just enough to provide some relief for Constitutional minded Patriots who are fighting the good fight.
- Congressman Cao, the lone Republican who voted for the legislation in November, has since reversed course and has joined the only bipartisan coalition of Representatives active in Congress; the coalition opposed to Democrat sponsored health care.
- Congressman Wexler resigned from the House of Representatives earlier this year, due to personal reasons. The special election to fill the vacant seat will not be held until April.
- Congressman Space has announced his opposition to government run health care, after supporting the legislation last year.
- Congressman Murtha died a few weeks ago, resulting in a vacant seat that has a good chance of switching over to Republican representation.
- Congressman Abercrombie is resigning next week, which will result in a special election in Hawaii's first congressional district and a good chance for Republicans to claim a long held seat of Democrat dominance.
