US of Banana Republic

(Link to the article by clicking on the title above or using link at end of post.)

Anyone who grew up in the US knows that there are procedures in place for a law to pass in the United States Congress. After a bill has passed both Houses, if there are disparities in the bills, leaders from both Houses go to "Conference." This is where the differences are hammered out and the bills are re-presented to both Houses for passage.

Well, with the battle of a lifetime in front of them, House Democrats see that the passage of the Health Care bill before them (Senate version) will not pass because of the smelly backroom deals, the lack of a public option, and most especially the abortion language. So, they are literally making up new rules in the House that would allow them to add/take away the most objectable language, and then just "deem" the bill as passed!

I can't believe this is happening in America.

Call your Congressman/Senator and let them know this is unacceptable.
