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:


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

  1. Bella,

    Speaking of people who know something about Constitutionality, you know the 3rd Branch of the Government (Judiciary) Justice Clarance Thomas’s wife has started a Tea Party 🙂,0,6505384.story

    I just called three undecided Fla. representatives – one I got, one I left my number, and the other one is busy, busy on both numbers, the one in D. C. and the one at her office.

    Ree, did you read what the reconciliation bill really is? Some bill from october, 2009 that they are bringing up to committee where they will strip out the language that is in it and put in new language, this to get around the fact that it is too late to do a reconciliation bill. Part of this is going to be on CSPAN this afternoon at 3:00.

    This little maneuver on top of the fact they are not going to vote on the Senate bill, but somehow incorporate it into this reconciliation bill. Too much monkey busniess.

    The whole thing is a shell game. The basterds and bastettes are running the biggest con ever on the American people.

    If this were the best bill in the whole wide world, it should go down on procedure alone.

    Schumer said we don’t care about the little porky projects in the stimulus bill and now Axelhose says we just don’t understand or care about little things like process and procedure.

    Is he nuts?

    The process and the procedure are the most important of all, since it is the part governed by the constitution.

    The truth is beginning to shine on them, and they don’t care about the constitution, and are running things by Alinsky rules instead – end justifies the means.

    They really must be stopped. The only time this crowd mentions the constitution and our “values” it is always in the same sentence with terrorists.

    elitist mentality, I don’t know if they think they are smarter or just better than those they “serve”

    I can’t stand what is happening to our country…been taken over by a bunch of thugs. It’s one thing to disagree about politics but this group is evil, bunch of traitors to our country. They have no shame. And once Obama gets his way, he’ll use executive orders to do whatever he wants.

    And even Fox News calls this healthcare reform when it’s the nationalization of healthcare. Fox is not that much better than MSNBC lately. We’re doomed. If we didn’t have talk radio, we’d get no truthful news.

    Our taxes are going to go thru the roof as soon as Obama signs off and we’ll see nothing for years. All the layabout libs who don’t understand they HAVE to buy the healthcare or be fined. They have to give all their bank info to the govt. These are the same people who supposedly don’t want the govt snooping in their business. Liberals are such hypocrites.

    Obama is buying anyone off necessary now. The fix is in…
