After America Rejects Obamacare … Obama to Publish Another Obamacare Healthcare Plan & Use 51 Vote Reconciliation to Pass It
The only “nuclear” option in reconciliation is the devastation that the Democrats are about to do to their own party.
Barack Obama is to post his own version of health care on web. Who does not think that he and his advisers did not have a hand in the already failed and rejected version of Obamacare?
Barack Hussein Obama is going to ram health care down the throats of Americans even after they have stated they are against Obamacare. This Administration and Democrats seem to care less what the will of the people is.
It appears that Democrats will use the 50 vote tactic of reconciliation to pass Obamacare. Democrats cannot get it through their heads that they lost the health care debate. The people in every poll do not want their bill and want the process to start from scratch. 61% in a recent Rasmussen poll wanted Congress to start over from scratch while by a 58% to 40% margin American opposed Obamacare. Instead it looks like Democrats are about to strap on Obamacare vests and commit political suicide ala a terrorist suicide bomber.
Those agreements are likely to be combined as a privileged budget reconciliation bill, which only needs a simple 51-vote majority to pass the 100-member Senate instead of the 60-vote supermajority that has become routine in the Senate and gives Republicans power to block the healthcare bill.
Wasn’t Barck Hussein Obama going to have a “Heath care” summit with Republicans to listen to their ideas at the end of February? So why are they talking about reconciliation and trying to do an end run on Republicans and the normal Senate process? So in other words Obama says according to Hot Air, “Let’s play nice or else I’ll nuke you with reconciliation.”
President Barack Obama is expected to publish his healthcare plan as early as Sunday or Monday, combining features of the two Democratic bills passed by the Senate and House of Representatives, congressional aides and healthcare advocates said on Friday.
The administration’s bill will aim to jump-start the stalled healthcare overhaul and comes just days ahead of a planned televised White House summit with congressional Republicans, who are calling on Democrats to scrap the bills and start over with a far less sweeping proposal.
Democrats are struggling to push healthcare legislation over the finish line in the face of sagging public support and solid Republican opposition bolstered by recent election victories in Massachusetts, Virginia and New Jersey.
Why wouldn’t Democrat Senate Majority leader Harry Reid pull a stunt like this, he is a dead man walking in the Senate race in Nevada to be reelected.
Reid said that congressional Democrats would likely opt for a procedural tactic in the Senate allowing the upper chamber to make final changes to its healthcare bill with only a simple majority of senators, instead of the 60 it takes to normally end a filibuster.
One would have to ask Democrats that would do such a thing against the will of the people … ARE YOU INSANE!!! As Red States says, “What is really going on? Are the Dems that crazy to think that their attempt at using reconciliation will help them politically?” If Democrats ever did such a thing as reconciliation with a health care bill that is so unpopular with the people, they would certainly lose the House and the Senate in 2010, would lose even more seats in the House and Senate in 2012 as well as the Presidency. No one would ever trust this party again. EVER!!!
