SLAUGHTER HOUSE RULES 222-203.
We the People “DEEM” this Congress unfit to lead …
Say hello to the Pelosi, Democrat, gutless run Congress. As stated at by Michelle Malkin, a ‘yes’ vote on the previous question is a vote to authorize Speaker Pelosi to use the Slaughter Solution to ram ObamaCare through the House without an up-or-down vote. A ‘no’ vote on the previous question is a vote against the Slaughter Solution. ” The following are the Democrats who joined Republicans in a bipartisan manner to stop the insanity of the Pelosi run House. So many Blue Dog Democrats know that “deeming” the vote is poison … Pelosi says, pass the Kool-aide.
The 28 Dems who joined Republicans in opposing deem-and-pass cramdown:
NRO has the list of vulnerable Democrats who just voted “yea” that the health care bill does not require a separate vote, and that demonpass/deem-and-pass is just dandy.
What kind of gutless cowards would not want to have an up and down vote on the single most important piece of legislation that looks to overturn health care insurance, increase taxes, raise the deficit, take over student loans, allow political kick backs and bribes for votes and so much more that we are not even allowed to see in this disaster of a health care bill.
Democrats shot down a Republican effort to force an up-or-down vote on the Senate healthcare bill on Thursday afternoon.
In a 222-203 vote, Democrats beat back a GOP resolution offered by Democrat-turned-Republican Rep. Parker Griffith (Ala.) that would have forced lawmakers to vote on the Senate healthcare bill separately from the series of fixes they hope to make to that legislation.
All Republican lawmakers who voted opposed the measure, which had the effect of ending the GOP’s effort to force a vote. They were joined by 28 Democrats, who broke with party members on the vote.
Two hundred and twenty-two Democrats supported the measure, though — enough to proceed. Three members of either party did not vote.
Republicans had hoped for the separate vote to get Democratic lawmakers on record on the Senate bill, which includes some provisions on abortion, excise taxes and other issues that House lawmakers find distasteful.
At this stage of the proceedings, Democrats plan a vote on a rule on Sunday that would make changes to the Senate-passed bill while deeming the original legislation to have passed the House.
The Ace of Spades brings up a troubling notion as to if 222 Democrats have voted for bypassing the US Constitution, will these people also then vote for Obamacare?
The Slaughter Rule will result in an even bigger political slaughter in 2010 and 2012. We the People will not forget.
