Now we’re getting to the nitty gritty final maneuvers of the unwanted health care reform bill and Democrats are getting more devious and cowardly, even for Democrats!
An idea is floating around the halls of congress that Obama Care can be passed WITHOUT a vote.
Can anybody say UNCONSTITUTIONAL?
From ABC News:
As House Democrats press for final passage of a health care bill, a legislative scenario has emerged whereby the House wouldn't have to take a formal roll call vote to endorse the Senate version of the legislation.
Instead, the House would craft a special piece of legislation declaring the Senate bill to have been passed by the House when the House approves its package of “fixes” under the budget reconciliation process. That would spare House members of the perception of endorsing politically explosive Senate deals such as the “Cornhusker Kickback.”
On ABC’s “Top Line” today, Rep. Lynn Woolsey, co-chair of the House Progressive Caucus, said that scenario is attractive to many House Democrats who have serious reservations about the Senate bill.
“I don’t need to see my colleagues vote for the Senate bill in the House. We don’t like the Senate bill. Why should we be forced to do that?” said Woolsey, D-Calif. “But what we need to know, before any Senate bill is passed, that we have enough of the fixes that we’ve asked for, that we will be satisfied with the final product as a beginning for health care [reform].”
James Madison would surely turn over in his graveif the Democrats went on with this cowardly demonstration.
This is what President Obama and the Democrats bring to the table, more deception and arrogance.
