    Some cold water thrown on the cramdown, ram-through, promise-we’ll-amend-it-later plans of the Democrat ruling majority. Curses, foiled again:

    What now? With the Slaughter solution toast, Philip Klein reports on the House Dems’ next move coming Monday:
    Michelle Malkin A wrench in Dems’ Wreckonciliation plans, but…

    I saw that and have to wonder what a "phantom bill" is.
    I also wonder why they can't just pass a "phantom bill" with "phantom votes", or is there too much "phantom opposition"?


    maybe next election we should just elect a "phantom congress", I maintain it would be much better for our country than the current crop of pretend leaders.......

    Lots of smoke and mirrors......but if they manage to get the Senate version passed during all this hoopla.....it's all over folks....Obama will take it, sign it, and run...and there will not be another peep from him about health care...

    Even if they were somehow able to smuggle this thing through Congress, the States are already lining up to fight them on it. Virginia's legislature has already passed a bill that says that Washington can't lay an individual mandate on Virginia citizens. Thirty-four other states have similar measures in the works.

    Obama, of course, in his infinite... um... wisdom, has conveniently pissed off the Supreme Court, not once but twice. :lol:
    They'll be lucky if they don't get Medicare/Medicaid and Social Security overturned in their haste to socialize our healthcare system.

    It will never pass with tricks.

    Its time the Dems faced reality, if they really want reform, it has to be done correctly from the start, and the first step is to burn all 2,000+ pages of 'Barrycare.'

    Good for Virginia. I hope that every other state does the same. I just can't believe that we have the United States federal government trying to require private citizens to buy a product just simply for being alive.

    It cannot be done correctly.
    Too many lobbyist and political irons in the fire for our govt to actually concentrate on what is best for us.

    Our politicorp govt is impotent as far as being for the people goes.
