    So it begins.
    This procedure is unconstitutional and will be challenged immediately in the courts. The Dems are on a path of self destruction. Either that or total tyranny.

    So, the Senate does not have to vote for it again because they are not changing any of the Senate bill in the conference?

    Thus the health care bill, if it passes the house, will be the Senate version?

    Is that what is going on here?

    It is ILLEGAL and will be challenged. And I hope the Democrats like the results in November.

    No, it means that the House does not have to vote on the Senate bill. They get to say it is 'deemed pass' without actually voting on it. They don't have the votes in the House right now and this by-passes that little problem. It's bullllshit.

    This way the House Dems get to save face :rolleyes: come November. They can claim they never voted for the Senate bill. FUCK THEM, every last one.

    it's a way of having your cake and not have the responsibility of the dirty deed. It will end up in the Supreme Court.
