"Democracy by Slaughter" One Catchy Title

>> Friday, March 12, 2010

The level of corruption and hypocrisy to which this democratic congress has fallen is astounding, and unparalleled in recent history.

As to hypocrisy, when Republicans considered the nuclear option to get judicial nominees an up or down vote in the senate, Democrats howled and foamed at every orifice over the 'corruption' of the Republican party. In the end it was a Republican who, with 6 others from his party and 7 Democrats who banded together to form the 'Gang of 14' in an effort to prevent the ruination of our democracy. Now when the tables are turned it's the Democrats who're exploring the nuclear option, and more...

Which leads me to their corruption-- aside from the many and several Dems guilty of their own little corruptions. From National Review Online, one catchy title...

Democracy by Slaughter by Daniel Foster

The sense around here for the last week or so has been that "only the House vote matters" in deciding the fate of Obamacare. But what if the Democrats can pass the bill with no House vote at all?

Astoundingly, House Democrats appear to be preparing to do just that:

House Rules Chairwoman Louise Slaughter is prepping to help usher the healthcare overhaul through the House and potentially avoid a direct vote on the Senate overhaul bill, the chairwoman said Tuesday.

Slaughter is weighing preparing a rule that would consider the Senate bill passed once the House approves a corrections bill that would make changes to the Senate version.

Slaughter has not taken the plan to Speaker Pelosi as Democrats await CBO scores on the corrections bill. "Once the CBO gives us the score we'll spring right on it," she said. . . .

House members are concerned the Senate could fail to approve the corrections bill, making them nervous about passing the Senate bill with its much-maligned sweetheart deals for certain states.

"We're well beyond that," Pelosi said Tuesday, though she did not clarify

That the Democrats could take this extraordinary step to avoid passing the Senate bill tells you that they have zero trust in the Senate to pass reconciliation "fixes," and zero trust in the president not to sign the Senate bill should it reach his desk and a reconciliation effort collapse. But most crucially, it gives the lie — in a big, big way — to the Democratic narrative that health-care reform should and will be finished via simple "majority rule," and not bound up in the arcane rules of the United States Senate.

Imagine that! The House considering passing a bill by simply DEEMING it passed! Without anyone having to vote! Certainly not any Democrats who oppose health care reform, and especially not any Republicans.

If a Republican congress were to have even considered doing this under President George W Bush, the Democrats would have, to quote Neal Boortz, shat cats.

It's clear, by ALL polling, that Americans do not want this health care bill. But our new president and congress do not care. They don't care what Americans think or want. Government knows what's best for the People. Well, sorry. This is not a monarchy-- though Obama often acts as though it is.

It's time to clean House, folks. House, Senate AND White! President Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid are the worst disasters to have ever made landfall on the United States of America, bar none! What America needs is regime change... one that will turn away from Saul Alinsky and return to the Constitution.

The irony here is how the right is so often accused of forcing their will on a hapless populace. One opponent at a lib blog referred to some conservatives as busybodies and fussbudgets just butting into peoples' private lives. Well what the hell is this now?

They (the House) need to pass this bill now, so the average American voters will have time to see how this legislation will affect each of them before their representatives in both houses can be re-elected.

Once the un-informed voters see what their misplaced confidence in their lawmakers hath wrought, they will rise up and vote the bastards out.

If this debate continues until shortly before the elections before passage, the mostly un-informed and ignorant voters will re-elect the very people that will ruin the rest of their lives.

But then, of course, it will be too late.

I see an upside to this: Dan and Geoff and Feodor and Jim and other rabid Liberals will get to see first hand how their heroes in Government will screw up their lives, and we Conservatives will at last feel vindicated.

A heavy price to pay for winning our argument, to be sure, but a bittersweet victory, nonetheless.

Uhhhh... How will voters see the worst of this bill when implementation isn't even scheduled to begin till 2013?

And why take such a monumental risk on the hope that 'the people' will wake up AFTER their economic future has been signed away?

Will it be easier to defeat Obamacare before it gets signed into law? or AFTER it is signed into law?

Has it been easier to repeal abortion on demand since it became law? How often has congress 'repealed' anything?

Your First Amendment right to free speech is a privilege and comes with a measure of responsibility. You have the right to exercise that responsibility here but we reserve the right to inform you when you've used that right irresponsibly.

We are benevolent dictators in this regard. Enjoy.
