    So even if they pass this, since it is different from the Senate bill, it has to go back over there to be passed again, right?

    Only if both bills are identical, can it be presented to Obama

    What's happening is that they're trying to get enough votes for the Slaughter cramdown rule, so they can magically deem the bill to be passed without an actual vote....Then the whole mess goes to the WH for signature.

    After a bill passes both houses, no further wrangling is required.

    It's total banana republic stuff going on here.

    But if there are differences, and there are differences galore, the differnces have to be resolved. It means there are two different bills out there now.

    passing amendments to it means it is different from the senate version, and still needs Senate approval I thought.

    Right....but what's getting lost in the shuffle are all the promises/deals being crammed down in this legislative pretzel.....they'll have to pass not only the House but the Senate as well...could be a problem...

    Who here really thinks Obama is going to give a HOOT about any pesky deals/promises once he signs his "deemed to be passed" Healthcare bill.........? I think he'll just jump ship onto Air Force One and skeedaddle over to revive his childhood memories of attending mosque in Indonesia and probably do some more bowing....

    ....and to hell with the House Dimwits stuck with empty (or revised) promises...:lol:

    (which is why i pray that Stupak et al don't fall for some gimmick)

    Picture two stacks of paper. One is the Senate bill that passed the Senate on Dec 24. The other is a bill that contains the takeover of the student loan program AND the proposed changes to the Senate healthcare bill. For the vote on Sunday, picture Nancy stacking those two bills on top of each either. IF the vote is "aye", then picture Nancy taking the student loan bill w/proposed health changes OFF the top of the stack, leaving the Senate bill standing alone. She will then send the Senate healthcare bill, unchanged< to Obama for signature. The student loan bill w/proposed healthcare changes would go to the Senate for possible passage. Until and if the Senate chooses to change it, the current Senate healthcare bill will be the law of the land.
