The NO votes are pile up on health care reform

I do not want to fill any of you with false optimism, but I cannot help but notice that the NO votes on ObamaCare are piling up.  Today we have two more Democrats coming out as confirm NO votes.

First there was Michael Acuri (D-NY) saying he is now a confirmed NO. Now we have Patrick Lynch (D-MA) saying he is a firm NO. It is interesting that both of these Reps are from hardcore blue states.

Lefty blog Firedog Lake is keeping a whip count and it is showing 192 YES votes vs. 208 NO votes. With people leaning one way or the other the count is 205 YES vs. 2010 NO. By this count only 6 more votes are needed to kill ObamaCare.

Again do not get optimistic, because it isn’t over until the fat lady sings. People saying they will vote one way or another is for the most part just talk. Until an actual vote is taken, nothing is set in stone. However there kind of appears to be a wee bit of a trend going. Let's just pray that it is a glimpse of things to come.

I think that Altmire is yes, he voted against not using the Slaughter rule today. He is just being spineless or maybe he likes all the attention he is currently getting.
