Stomping On Our Constitution
With many signs showing Democrats may attempt a vote on Obama Care this week, Sean discussed the ramifications of such a bill being passed. “If the bill is passed, it won’t even go into effect until January 2014, although we’ll start paying taxes on it almost immediately. What’s worse,” said Sean, “Is that House Democrats are attempting to put wording into the bill that would not allow any portion of the bill to be repealed at anytime, by any Congress. Actually ANY bill can be repealed,” Sean said angrily. “They are literally stomping on our Constitution.” As it stands right now, Democrats do not have the votes necessary to pass Obama Care.

Make Up Your Mind Rep. Altmire
A fired up Sean Hannity burst onto the air this afternoon and pulled no punches. Sean specifically singled out Rep. Jason Altmire (D-PA) and his office staff, calling on the House Democrat to make a decision on Obama Care. “I know for a fact Jason Altmire’s office is listening right now. I know because I called them during a break. How long is it going to take you to make up your mind Jason?” Sean said angrily. “We’ve been debating this thing a year! If you’re so upset about what I said on this show, why don’t you come on? I’ve invited you on the program. Come on Congressman, you represent the people, you can’t possibly be afraid to come on a little radio show are ya?” Sean said sarcastically. It’s a free call Congressman – 1.800.941.SEAN.
Battle For U.S. Senate Seat In Florida
The Republican primary for the United States Senate in Florida is still five months away – but just try telling that to Florida Governor Charlie Crist or challenger Marco Rubio. The two are battling it out head to head for the seat in a hotly contested race. Former Florida Speaker of the House Marco Rubio joined Sean on the NewsMaker hotline to discuss the race and his petition against Obama Care. Recent polls show Rubio has notched a healthy lead over his opponent but the former speaker isn’t letting up. “The truth is, I didn't pay a lot of attention to these polls or get excited when we were 30 points down, so we are not going to get excited when we're 30 points up,” said Rubio. The conversation turned to Rubio’s online petition to scrap Obama Care. Rubio feels Democrats will try to vote on the health care reform bill this week, possibly as soon as Thursday.
