Scroll for updates…

With Demcare now in critical condition, Tea Party activists are turning up the heat today in Washington for the Code Red Rally on Capitol Hill. Laura Ingraham is hosting. Speakers include Sen. Tom Coburn, M.D. (R-Okla.) and Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.). Folks are traveling from across the country to be there.

If you are in the D.C. area today, join them at 1:30 pm, Upper Senate Park, on Constitution Ave. between New Jersey and Delaware St. NE.

More info here and here.

Update: A Hill source says to pay attention to Sen. Ben Nelson. He is reportedly being threatened with closure of an air force base if he doesn’t fall in line and will be offered a “blank check” bribe bigger than Sen. Landrieu’s.

Also: The Dems now expect the CBO scoring of the Reid plan that no one has seen to look good once the Medicare expansion is thrown under the bus. And: After all the sound and fury, Joe Lieberman is now reportedly on board with Demcare.

The Hill reports that Dick “In the Dark” Durbin is “moving toward 60.”

Update: Heeeeere come’s MoveOn! Steamed at the Democrat majority over negotiating with Joe Lieberman, the nutroots will hold their own “emergency rally” today at 1pm Eastern today to lobby for nationalized health care.

Wonder if unhinged Jane Hamsher will show up to burn Sen. Lieberman’s wife in effigy.

Update 11:49am Eastern: Lieberman talking to press right now. Says Demcare plan is now “heading in the right direction.” GOP Sen. Susan Collins is standing by him, smiling, through his remarks.

Ok, Susan Collins speaks. She can’t see voting for the bill in its current form. “It’s still too deeply flawed for me to support it.” She says she won’t support it even with amendments intended to improve the bill (that no one has seen, of course).

Update 2:00pm Eastern: Sen. Tom Coburn at Code Red Rally. “This health care bill isn’t about health care. It’s about government control…This bill must be stopped.”
