    If there wasn't so much on the line this would be comical. Holy fuck are they getting desperate to start this bullshit. Just in case they don't get the votes they'll jam it through this way.

    I agree, and maybe that is the plan.

    i doubt it...scotus will probably just say its nonjusticiable

    it really is a sad day that the dems know this bill won't pass unless they HIDE the votes...this should be a wake up call and they should listen to the american people

    Actually Claudette, they ARE using what little brains they have left. They can't think past the obstacle. They (Nancy Pelosi mostly) will do ANYTHING to pass this bill. It is all she has. If it fails, she's doomed. If it passes, ironically, she's still doomed. But the sad part is, she doesn't seem to care! And the entire nation will pay the price and she will still not care.

    She's evil to the core.

    Just more typical Washington bullshit. Makes you feel like they really listen to the will of the people, huh? Those congress critters that aren't outright crooks are high profile con men.

    What are you all worried about? San Fran Nan has assured us that we'll like it when we see what's in, but it needs to be passed first.

    If they had the votes, they'd vote on it, pure and simple. They don't have the votes, so this is the way left to them to get it passed.

    Fuckers.
