    Looks to me like that aide was just chatting up a worst-case scenario. Can't do that these days, or it gets immediately put online as gospel truth and the right-wing herd buys right into it without further consideration.

    This is the only way to get this bill that the american people do not want passed, giving a way for the dems to get out of voting for this bill, saying I was only voting for passing a tax on bonuses. what a bunch of bull shit!!!! These morons will pay with their jobs next election if they pull this chicken shit!!!

    I have heard the same thing, that he is proposing attaching health care reform to a budget bill.

    I can guarantee that won't happen. Why? Because Harry Reid is running for reelection, and is already way down in the polls. Nine other Democrats are up for reelection, and they won't approve of this back door action either. Therefore, the Senate couldn't even get 50 votes, let alone the required 60.

    You guys should stop and think for a second. What would be the reason for doing this? O wait, there isn't one.

    Where are you even getting the information that "the American People" do not want this?

    Off of what freaking poll? Musta been that World Net Daily three person poll, or something similar, the four person poll on free-republic, LMAO.
