From a top-level source in the House comes the news that the Democrats are still short of the 216 votes they need to pass Obamacare.

They have decided, however, to go for broke on Sunday and attempt to pass it whether or not they have enough support. They feel that only by forcing a vote can they force members off the fence.

They hope that by employing all means at their disposal, they can round up enough votes for passage. But, if they don't have the votes, they will allow the measure to be defeated. One source called it a "suicide run."

The League of American Voters is strengthening its efforts to get the word out about President Obama and Speaker Nancy Pelosi's healthcare takeover, which includes healthcare rationing and skyrocketing taxes. Click here to donate.

The Chamber of Commerce is now running new ads linking healthcare to the deficit and America's possible loss of an AAA rating on its bonds.

Keep on phoning and keep on working!
