Dems using unconstitutional tricks to pass health care

“Let me be as clear as I know how.  If this is done, this will create the greatest Constitutional crisis since the Civil War.  It would be 100 times worse than Watergate.” Mark Levin

Chris Van Hollen (D-MO) confirms to Chris Wallace that the “Slaughter Rule” will be used to avoid a vote on the Senate health care bill that was passed in the middle of the night by the Senate on December 24, 2009.

In the Slaughter Solution, the rule would declare that the House “deems” the Senate version of Obamacare to have been passed by the House. House members would still have to vote on whether to accept the rule, but they would then be able to say they only voted for a rule, not for the bill itself.

And Robert Gibbs declares:

Gibbs added that those on next week’s Sunday talk shows “will be talking about healthcare not as a presidential proposal but I think as the law of the land.”

No yeas and nays.  Nobody to hold accountable.  Unconstitutional maneuvers.  Arrogance.  These people are corrupt.  You can’t “deem” a bill passed.

But the fight is not over:

RALLY – TUESDAY, MARCH 16TH – WASHINGTON, D. C. TO PROTEST THE BILL AND THE PROCEDURE

If they get away with this, what will be next?  I would think Democrats and Republicans alike would be concerned about this power grab.
