Red State is reporting a rumor that’s pretty scary. Now, normally I’m wary of rumors but this one is scary enough to throw it out there. And it feels like something Rahm Emmanuel would do:
Head’s up: there is a rumor circulating in the House of Representatives that enough Blue Dogs have caved on health care for Nancy Pelosi to get the bill to the floor this week. The memo to Republicans assuring them there’d be no vote could have been a ruse to turn down constituent heat enough.
Democrats are growing fearful that August recess will turn the Blue Dogs cold and want something out by Friday.
It appears they may have the votes to do that…
If you want to contact your legislator to give them what for on this, go to Red State.
