As I wrote here on March 02:

Bottom line. The Democrats will pass this sweeping legislation that will take over 1/6 of our economy, over the clear majority of the American people that don’t want it. They will do it on a purely partisan basis using a procedural process never used before on big legislation without wide public and bi-partisan support*, and used only for budgetary measures previously.

This is what will happen. Get ready for it.

There is this thing called Karma though. It almost always comes back and bites you in the butt when you do something like this. Not only will Republicans probably win back the Majority in November, but the line using reconcilation has been crossed. The Democrats can’t howl when it’s used against them.

The Democrats imagine that this legislation, once signed into law, cannot be reversed. Why? Because nothing ever has before of this magnitude. But this is a different time. This is Tea Party time. You have the American people paying attention and they will not stand for this. You wait. You will see. There is a big storm coming.

It’s us.

I have never seen anything like what just happened. Yesterday was a whirlwind of activity and deals to get votes. So many things going on I could hardly keep up with it, much less write about it.

Even though we lost this vote, I have to say that it delights me that the most pro-abortion politician to ever run for President was forced to write an executive order affirming that federal funds won’t be used for abortion in order to please and get the votes of pro-life Democrats. That makes me smile.

It also made me smile that so many Americans showed up to protest this. Despite a year long push and Obama’s campaign rallies around the country, the majority of Americans are still against this legislation.

I think there will be a lot of blowback for this. As I said, so many members of Congress that voted yes to this bill will not be re-elected in November. Obama’s approval ratings will continue to go down, because people see him as the one who forced this on us.

The Washington Post:

The political stakes are enormous. Obama’s approval ratings are below 50 percent in several recent polls, and more people disapprove of his handling of health care than approve. The outcome of the debate will stamp his presidency.

Democrats are afraid of failure and nervous about what success could bring. They fear substantial losses in November, with their majorities in the House and Senate possibly at risk if the country turns even more negative toward the administration and its policies. Republicans vow to continue challenging the program at the state and national levels.

This is a bad bill. We all know it. Mark my words. This bill, as it is now, will never see the light of day in it being implemented.

Why? Because I have never in my lifetime seen regular people, not politicians or political junkies like myself, but regular people, who are so mad at being ignored. For the first time they feel they can make Washington listen, and they aren’t going away quietly.

Count on it.

As Boehner put it to the WaPo:

“If this bill passes, we will have an effort to repeal the bill, and we’ll do it the same way that we approached health care, a step-by-step basis,” Boehner said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

Let’s not forget about the states either:

As part of state-based responses to federal health reform legislation, individual members of at least 36 state legislatures are using the legislative process to seek to limit, alter or oppose selected state or federal actions, including single-payer provisions and mandates that would require purchase of insurance. In general the measures seek to make or keep health insurance optional, and allow people to purchase any type of coverage they may choose. The individual state language varies.

If Obama would have governed as he campaigned he would, he would have met with both Republican and Democratic congressional leaders and hammered out a plan that both could support early on. Especially since there were many things we all agree upon. Obama could have had a bi-partisan bill that would have elevated his Presidency.

But he choose the Chicago way. He choose the pay offs, the bullying, and the bribes.

He will never recover.

So don’t be dismayed my conservatives friends, karma will have it’s day with the Democrats. And that day will be in November.

As soon to be Speaker of the House Boehner, said last night : “SHAME ON YOU that substitutes your will and desires against the wishes of your countrymen!

Update: It seems Rep. Stupak’s karma is coming back to bite him right away:

Susan B. Anthony List Candidate Fund President Marjorie Dannenfelser offered the following statement:

“This Wednesday night is our third annual Campaign for Life Gala, where we were planning to honor Congressman Stupak for his efforts to keep abortion-funding out of health care reform-We will no longer be doing so. By accepting this deal from the most pro-abortion President in American history, Stupak has not only failed to stand strong for unborn children, but also for his constituents and pro-life voters across the country.”

Also, Daniel Benishek, a surgeon, has announced he is running against Stupak in November.

Why did Stupak give in?

Instapundit: Three quarters of million bucks for three, count ’em, three airports in Stupak’s district.

One last thing. Here is a list of the brave Democrats who decided the will of the people was more important than Pres. Obama’s political legacy. Let’s remember them in November and support them as well.
