WE ARE LIVING IN A DICTATORSHIP

House Democrats Appear Set to Pass Senate Bill Without Voting on It
By Jon Ward
Friday, March 12

Republicans now expect Democrats to pass health care through the House with a trick only Capitol Hill could dream up: approving the Senate bill without voting on it.

It’s called the “Slaughter Solution” (prepare for a weekend of endless TV gabbing about it).

And after debating House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer on the chamber floor, Minority Whip Eric Cantor emerged convinced that Democrats are going to use the tactic, and that they won’t allow Republicans, and the public, to see the text of any legislation for 72 hours before a vote.

“I can infer that we’re going to see a rule that will deem the Senate bill as having passed, and at the same time not even have 72 hours to even look at what they are passing,” Cantor, a Virginia Republican, said in an interview outside his office at the Capitol.

“The outrage to me on the part of the public is going to be focused on the fact that there is not even an up or down vote, a clean up or down vote,” Cantor said.

Here’s the reason Democrats are using such a complicated procedure: many in the House completely do not trust the Senate to pass fixes to the bill passed by the Senate in December. But according to the rules of reconciliation, the House must go first in passing the Senate bill and passing a reconciliation fix.

So House Democrats have been searching for a way to alleviate members’ concerns that if they vote for the Senate bill and the Senate does nothing to fix it, they will be hung out to dry as having supported a piece of legislation that many across the country dislike, either for spending reasons, or because of special provisions like the extra money for Nebraska’s Medicaid population (the “Cornhusker kickback”).

Technically, using the “Slaughter solution,” they’ll never have voted for the bill they find odious, even if their vote on the reconciliation legislation will have been the vote that passed the Senate bill into law.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, California Democrat, alluded to all this at her weekly press conference Friday.

“There are certain assurances that they want and that we will get for them before I ask them to take a vote,” Pelosi said.

The “Slaughter solution” is named for House Rules Committee Chairman Louise Slaughter, the New York Democrat who came up with the idea. She told the Daily Caller on Thursday that the chances of her procedure being used were “pretty good.”

Despite doubt among some on Capitol Hill on whether the “Slaughter solution” was feasible, Cantor expressed no doubt that the tactic could be used.

“It’s a self-executing rule. It is akin to passage but hidden in a rule as a side-note, passing the 2,700-page, $1 trillion bill, oh by the way,” he said.

Hoyer rejected the idea that Republicans have not had enough time to review the legislation.

“You have had months to review the substance of that bill. You don’t like it. We understand. You’re going to oppose it. We understand that as well. The fact of the matter is you cannot say you have had no notice of each and every provision for over two months,” said Hoyer, a Maryland Democrat.

Cantor said he wanted 72 hours to review the final text of the reconciliation bill.

“The reconciliation bill is new text. He claims it’s old hat, but this is clearly where they’re reconciling differences,” Cantor said, expressing concern that Democrats would rush the final text to the House floor for a vote to keep “sweeteners” used to buy off votes from being discovered.

Democrats are coalescing around a schedule for the bill’s route to the House floor for a vote. They are expecting a final score from the Congressional Budget Office later today.

On Monday, the House Budget Committee will mark the bill up, leading to an expected vote in the Rules Committee on Wednesday, with a final vote by the full House possible next weekend.

The question remains, however, whether Pelosi will even be able to round up enough votes to pass a bill.

Momentum continued to go the wrong direction for her on Friday, as two more Democrats said they are opposed to the bill.

YES PRES. OBAMA WE NOTICED

This  was written by Sherry Hackett, Buddy  Hackett’s widow………

 

 

“WE NOTICED”

 

 

President Obama:

Today I read of your administrations’ plan to  re-define September 11 as a National Service Day. Sir, it’s time we had a talk………

During your campaign, Americans watched as you  made mockery of our tradition of standing and crossing your  heart when the Pledge of Allegiance was spoken. You, out of four people on the stage, were the only one  not honoring our tradition.

YES, “We noticed.” 

During one of your many speeches, Americans heard you say that  you intended to visit all 57 states. 
We all know that Islam, not America has 57  states.

YES, “We noticed.” 

When President Bush leaned over at Ground Zero and gently  placed a flower on the memorial, while you nonchalantly  tossed your flower onto the pile without leaning  over.

YES, “We noticed.” 

Every time you apologized to other countries for America  ‘s position on an issue we have wondered why you don’t share our  pride in this great country. When you have heard foreign leaders  berate our country and our beliefs, you have not defended us. In  fact, you insulted the British Crown beyond belief.

YES, “We noticed.” 

When your pastor of 20 years, “God-damned America ” and said  that 9/11 was ” America ‘s chickens coming home to roost”  and you denied having heard recriminations of that nature, we  wondered how that could be. You later disassociated yourself  from that church and Pastor Wright because it was politically  expedient to do so.

YES, “We noticed.”

When you announced that you would transform America ,  we wondered why. With all her faults, America is the  greatest country on earth. Sir, KEEP THIS IN MIND, “if not for   America and the people who built her, you wouldn’t be sitting in  the White House now.” Prior to your election to the highest  office in this Country, you were a senator from Illinois and  from what we can glean from the records available, not a very  remarkable one.

YES, “We noticed.” 

All through your campaign and even now, you have surrounded  yourself with individuals who are basically unqualified for  the positions for which you appointed them. Worse than that, the  majority of them are people who, like you, bear no special allegiance, respect, or affection for this country and her  traditions.

YES, “We noticed.”

You are 9 months into your term and every morning millions  of Americans wake up to a new horror heaped on us by you. You seek  to saddle working Americans with a health care/insurance  reform package that, along with cap and trade, will bankrupt  this nation.

 

 

YES, “We noticed.”

 

 

We seek, by protesting,  to let our representatives know that we are not in favor of  these crippling expenditures and we are  labeled “un-American“,”racist”, “mob”. We wonder how we are supposed  to let you know how frustrated we are. You have attempted to  make our protests seem isolated and insignificant. Until  your appointment, Americans had the right to speak  out.

YES, “We noticed.”

On September 11, 2001 there were no Republicans  or Democrats, only Americans. And we all grieved together and  helped each other in whatever way we could. The attack on 9/11  was carried out because we are Americans. 
 
And YES, “We noticed.” 

There were many of us who prayed that as a black president you could help unite this nation. In six months you have done  more to destroy this nation than the attack on 9/11. You have  failed us.

YES, “We noticed.”

September 11 is a day of remembrance for all  Americans. You propose to make 9/11 a “National Service Day”.  While we know that you don’t share our reverence for 9/11, we  pray that history will report your proposal as what it is….a  disgrace.

 

 

YES, “We noticed.”

 

 

You have made a mockery of  our Constitution and the office that you hold. You have  embarrassed and slighted us in foreign visits  and policy.
 
YES, “We noticed..”

 

 

We have noticed all these things. We will deal with you. When Americans come together again, it will be to remove  you from office.

Take notice.
 
If you agree with this please  pass it on.
