Obviously Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and President Barack Obama never watched School House Rock … “I’m Just a Bill”.
Maybe they should, they could learn something about the Constitutionality of how a bill actually does become a law. Let’s face it, Democrats just don’t care whether what they do is Constitutional or not. Pass Obamacare at all cost no matter what damage it does.
More Hope, Change and transparency as Obama, Pelosi and Reid look to ram Obamacare down the throat of America. Barack Obama promised to change the way Washington, DC conducted business. Who knew that meant throwing the US Constitution out the window. As the WAPO writes, the House may try to pass Senate health-care bill without voting on it.
After laying the groundwork for a decisive vote this week on the Senate’s health-care bill, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi suggested Monday that she might attempt to pass the measure without having members vote on it.
Instead, Pelosi (D-Calif.) would rely on a procedural sleight of hand: The House would vote on a more popular package of fixes to the Senate bill; under the House rule for that vote, passage would signify that lawmakers “deem” the health-care bill to be passed.
The tactic — known as a “self-executing rule” or a “deem and pass” — has been commonly used, although never to pass legislation as momentous as the $875 billion health-care bill. It is one of three options that Pelosi said she is considering for a late-week House vote, but she added that she prefers it because it would politically protect lawmakers who are reluctant to publicly support the measure.
UPDATE I: SC Senator Lindsey Graham stated Pelosi has House Dems ‘liquored up on sake’ ready for ‘suicide run’.We will go one better and call them terrorist suicide bombers. Might as well make the suicide mission more current.
Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Monday used language that compared House Democrats’ efforts to pass healthcare reform legislation to a Japanese kamikaze mission.
“Nancy Pelosi, I think, has got them all liquored up on sake and you know, they’re making a suicide run here,” Graham said on the Keven Cohen Show on WVOC radio in Columbia, S.C.
EXIT QUESTION: How bad is a bill if one, all polls show that Americans oppose it and two, Democrats are attempting every political trick in the book to get it passed, other than normal procedure?
Ask yourself why Democrats would do such a thing? It’s not for the American people. The more ‘We the People” stand up in opposition to this bill, the more Obama, Pelosi and Reid thumb their noses at us.
The Obama government is out of control.
