    Just happening:

    'Deem and pass' out, overhaul to get direct vote - Health care reform- msnbc.com

    WASHINGTON - With a showdown vote on health care legislation set for Sunday in the House, Democrats have dropped a controversial plan to indirectly approve the bill, choosing instead to hold a direct vote on the Senate’s version of the overhaul.

    The Washington Post and POLITCO reported the news on Saturday afternoon, less than an hour before President Barack Obama was scheduled to meet with the House Democratic caucus.

    The “deem and pass” procedure would have allowed House Democrats to avoid an up-or-down vote on the Senate bill, which many members dislike because of the bill’s carve-out provisions for individual states.

    This means they likely have the votes.

    God help this country.

    One small victory for the constitution. But one must wonder what Obama and Pelosi have planned for us now.

    Well, well, well


    Now you really will have no defense when all your predictions fo doom and gloom dont materialize.

    Will you be happy if this bill works out great for the American people?

    Will you admitt you were wrong?

    So the House will pass the Senate Bill as is, then pass their adjustments. which will have to go to the Senate as a new Bill? What a bitch if it fails in the Senate.......

    Or..... they've been told it's unconstitutional and figure they can't get away with it - what with the eyes of the nation upon them. Happily, they'll have to go on the record with their votes.... and vast numbers will kiss goodbye to their jobs in November.

    how many years will you insist it is not working after it passes even though all the evidence will deny your claims?


    Will you ever admitt you are wrong about this when the evidence pours in?
