    Back in 1974 Congress passed a measure saying you can't use reconciliation on a bill that will effect Social Security revenues. This bill will, so it is likely the House parlamentarian will declare this vote null and void. The plot thickens.

    The Dems diverted $53B of SS taxes to ObamaCare to cook the CBO score.

    This is the worst Congressional Majority every. Truly thuggish.

    So now they face going through the whole process again. New bill for the House and the Senate will have to pass the same thing. Of course, the ensuing process will eat up considerable time and take the focus off jobs. This will compound problems for Dems seeking reelection. I guess they could just postpone the whole mess until after the next election. lol

    I don't think you understand what they are doing.

    but...

    The GOP is going to use this try and put a stop to coverage and protections for the very people this rule looked to protect. talk about original intent and meanings.:eusa_whistle:

    oh well, I guess it's okay, it is allowed by the rules if the Parliamentarian agrees. Funny thing is, douchbaghs have been arguing that Democrats using the rules in this same way was awful. Now it's great news...to them. :lol:


    gawd, I love the circus acts and side shows of American democracy.

    Well, since the reconcilliation isn't what is being really voted on, but the senate bill is, who gives a rip?



    As for the whole democracy thing... It was getting outdated anyway. You Obamabots will regret its passing more than the rest of us.

    I didn't vote for Obama, but so far, I support his actions here. Democracy is what you were yapping about when Scott Brown won a Senate seat and what your type was yapping about when the Tea Party Terrorism was hidden.

    Not in your definition of reform. Tort reform, interstate competition and the like, sure. This bill we have now no more helps health care than snake oil.
