It’s all in Jonah Goldberg’s book: “Liberal Fascism”.
This is pretty bad, but no one is going to do anything about it.
...not with a bang, but a whimper.
Have you learned yet?
Crown me or we shall destroy the GOP again.
Now go buy my book, and play with your bananas.
Shorter word: "Dictatorship"
Voting to “accept the rule” will be the equivalent of voting for the senate bill. Dems can’t believe they’ll get by with this fraudulent scam of the American public.
By what this Democrat has just said the Democrat Party of America has declared war on America, war against the Constitution they are sworn to uphold and they have declared war on the American people. This is the non-violent take-over of The Untied States of America by an American political party. This is war. There is a season to everything under Heaven. A season for Peace and a season of War. We’ve come to the latter season. The Democrat Party has with deliberate and malicious intent bought this situation about in planned and deliberate move to seize power in the US and radically transform our Constitutional Democracy to a centrally controlled socialist,quasi-police state. This is serious. These bastards have got to be stopped.
The bill isn't going to be legally effective if quasi adopted under the Slaughter rule. The article is correct as far as it goes--the adoption process wouldn't comply with the Constitution and they don't have law, even when the Senate bill is signed by Obama.
The reason they are doing this is to have a claim that they have complied with the Reconciliation Rule in the Senate--that they have a bill that is legally effective to reconcile to. So they can then take the House bill to the Parliamentarian of the Senate and get him to approve a motion on the rules to get the bill to the floor.
Then, if the Parliamentarian says ok, they take the House bill to the floor under reconciliation rules and either the Senate passes it intact; or amends it and passes it as amended in which case it goes back to the House; or it fails on the Senate floor.
If the later, I don't think they have law. But if they can do either one of the first two alternatives followed in the case of the second by adoption by the House, they have law even though the initial passage of the Senate bill was ineffective.
And BTW, Ms. Slaughter is an absolute stupid phoney jackass.
Obama and the Democrat congress are already on thin ice with the American people and if they try to use the 'Slaughter Rule' to ram through Obamacare without a vote, there will be a citizen revolt. Enough is enough.
The fact they are even considering this is very scary. They are not in the least bit interested in what the ‘people’ want.
Rule by Royal Decree. That worked out so well for King George III.
IMO, Pelosi, Reid, the Fuhrer, his thug Administration, and the RATs in Congress are wiping their rears on our Constitution.
violation to the legislative process defined by the U.S Constitution.
It’d be the congressional way to neutralize the executive branch. Just think of the mischief it would allow. LOL
I “deem” any such act an act of treason, as it violates their oath to uphold the Costitution. Since it is a treasonous act, compliance is complicity in treason.
Fight, fight and fight some more. The choice is either freedom or chains. Since slavery is outlawed, any law that wou;d enslave us is invalid.
Okay, here's a TIME post listing those times when Republicans hve used the self-executing rule or so-called Slaughter Solution -- complete with quotes from Dems SCREAMING about Republicans using the self-executing rule. You see, there's really nothing new in Washington....
And here's a post supporting the constitutionality of the self-executing rule.
I'm not a constitutional lawyer, so all this beats me. But the fact is the so-called Slaughter solution, or self-executing rule, has been used before and has been used by Republicans, who only recently started calling it the Slaughter Solution because LOL it sounds so nasty.
Boehner should take to the House floor tomorrow and call for her immediate expulsion, IMO.
Soylent Green, You Tube has many more scenes...worth watching a few.

Code Red - House Target List on Health Care
The National Republican Congressional Committee has published a target list on health care. In addition to continuing to contact the five Tennessee Democrat Congressmen, you can go http://www.votervoice.net/link/clickthrough/ext/94697.aspx to contact some of these targets. Much of the talk following Obamas announcement has focused on how to defeat this second bill through reconciliation, but that is misleading because the first step to defeating Obamacare is not by concentrating on defeating the fixer bill but by defeating the Senate bill in the House when it goes to the floor for an up-or-down vote on Thursday, March 18th.

On the Bubble (Major developments from the yes and no columns in the House)
Congressional Dems on Twitter
And here are toll-free numbers we can use to call any Senators or Reps.
At the first number below you must wait through a tape recording urging you to tell your Rep or Senator to vote yes for the health care bill. Just hang on and when the recording is over, you will get the Capitol operator. Just ask for your Rep or Senators office. Then you will either talk to an aid or have the chance to leave a message for him/her to vote NO on the health care bill.
When you use the second number and the Capitol operator comes on, just ask for your Rep or Senators office. Every time I use this number I get the Rep or Senators answer machine, so it may be set up that way all the time...to go to their answer machine. Either way you can leave a message to vote NO on the health care bill!
We need to use these toll free numbers that have been set up for the health care/ BO supporters and illegals to use! After all they are FREE!
it’s time for the people to be heard. there are three ways:
while we reserve #1, #2 has shown itself ineffectuve as they stuff the ballot boxes and shutdown FBI investigations once in power. that leaves protest... but as we saw last fallen, even putting 2.5m people on their steps doesn’t matter to these people. so what can be done?
I believe the last step before violence would be financial. I understand the fedgov would disregard and jut print the money it needs... but it is a last step
as such, I would propose a protest website where people would pledge not to pay their income taxes... but instead file the forms and place the money in an interest bearing, offshore escrow account.
once the fedgov is back in line with the Constitution, the monies would be released
