Posted on 10/15/2009 7:21:42 PM PDT by Newton
House Ways & Means Committee Chairman Charlie Rangel (D-N.Y.) held a hearing this morning to certify that H.R. 3200 -- the main House Obamacare bill which was the subject of all the town hall rage in August -- has met all requirements to pass as a budget reconciliation measure.
Under reconciliation, the bill can be passed by a simple majority vote in the Senate -- just 51 votes -- and will be given preferential treatment on the House floor as well. The Dems have apparently invoked the nuclear option to shut out Republicans and ensure the bill is passed before the end of the year. (see link for more....)

On a side note - to the old time freepers is the author the former freeper "Clinton's a Liar"?
Yes that is her.
“What rough beast...” ping.
Pass this bill or anything like it....then you’ll find out what the ‘nuclear option’ is!
I’ve never seem a suicide performed in public before. That’s what the Democratic party is doing this year. Aparently, they must value passing this monstrosity over their own personal careers. This should be interesting.
A**hole Rangel wouldn’t know a legit requirement if it bit him on his snot locker.
I think people are way behind. I don’t think they plan on ever leaving office, because we will be under dictatorship.
How often are we seeing news from other countries? Hardly any. How about what’s happening in the rest of the states next to you? Or across the country?
People are starved for news because we are not getting it. we get the same fluff stories over and over and over, every day...
They can start collecting the money right away, years before anything is put into practice. It’s about getting their hands on a new pot of money.....
“I think people are way behind. I dont think they plan on ever leaving office, because we will be under dictatorship.”
As Bugs Bunny once said, “Of course you know...this means war!”
They have probably been assured that the formality of elections will not interfere with their careers. The election process, like every other American instititution, has been sold to the highest bidder. You will NOT be able to vote out the oligarchs.
Why are you surprised? “They won”. This is what happens when the radicals took over, the only thing stopping them from doing nuclear options or anything else they damn well please is their own lack of guts.
I’ve read this several times. But I’m pretty sure i read somewhere else that the reconciliation rules expire October 15th, in which case it would be too late for the Senate to use that rule, even if the House could ever get their bill passed and sent to the Senate.
Ive never seem a suicide performed in public before. Thats what the Democratic party is doing this year. Aparently, they must value passing this monstrosity over their own personal careers. This should be interesting.
Not if we no longer will be a ‘democracy’. After all......the libs have stated quite clearly that they long for a dictatorship. They want ‘daddy’ to take care of them. Votes won’t exist.
How very un-ethical of Rangle....this must be his last defiant act, before the Dems abandon him.
Its a Racist act against the White majority !
That’s because the Dems know if this is passed, this will no longer be the United States of America. They will have complete power of all of us. This is what liberals have wanted for the past 40 years, to have total control of America’s health care system, they will own us
We all know what's coming.
Ping to me to find out if this is true
