Skip to comments.Ryan: Dems Ramming "Shell" HC Bill Through Committee Monday
Posted on 03/11/2010 3:49:03 PM PST by BarnacleCenturion
Rep. Paul Ryan says that Democrats are ready to ram a "shell" health care bill through the Budget Committee, on which he serves as ranking Republican member, to use as a vehicle to impose national health care.
In a phone interview with TAS Thursday afternoon, Ryan said that he expects Democrats to begin the complex process on Monday, under which they would have the Budget Committee approve a phantom bill by midnight, which they will then send over to the Rules Committee. At that point, the Rules Committee will strip out all of the language in the phantom bill, and insert the changes to the Senate bill that Democrats have negotiated.
"They don't have the votes right now, but they're creating the vehicle so that they can airdrop in whatever changes they want," Ryan said.
He said that Republicans are outnumbered 2-to-1 on his committee and don't have the votes to stop the bill there. Democrats will also be able to prevent Republicans from offering any amendments, but GOP members will be able to offer "motions to instruct" the Rules Committee, that Ryan said will be used highlight problems with the "unprecedented" step that Democrats are taking.
He said he expected Democrats to dust off last year's health care bills from the Education and Labor and Ways and Means Committees, to use as the vehicle for reconciliation changes.
He also warned against focusing too much on the reconciliation process in the Senate. "Reconciliation is a distraction," he said. "Once the House passes the Senate bill we have the massive new entitlement."

Juan McCain/Lindsay Graham-nesty are working with Obama and Schumer on amnesty.
Don’t forget that Romney, Kyl, Flake, Newt, Thompson, Pail and other RINO rats are campaigning for McCain.
“Been saying Novena/S every single night. We DO need Divine Intervention.”
If I could remember how to say a rosary I would, so the best I can do is pray, Dear God, please save our country. What we need now is a miracle.
Maybe I'm missing something here, but how can you have a payroll tax on unearned income? Or has "payroll" simply become a synonym for "we grab it before you even get your hands on it"?
Until that day, my faith in the ability of the Electorate to get their heads out of their collective a$$e$ and see what's going on in this Country is tepid at best.
I just had a friend, a business owner to boot, tell me that he's giving Obama another six months. I looked at him in disbelief and said, to do what, turn us in to the Soviet Union?
He then went on to tell me how “intelligent” Obama was and that he couldn't have voted for McCain because he thought Palin was so stupid. I informed him that Palin is Einstein compared to Biden, and she wiped the floor with him in the Debate. He agreed Biden is an idiot, but Obama’s intelligence ruled the day.
I just rolled my eyes and left after that one.
Well said! No representation and corruption ta' boot! Time for Revolution II !
I’ll do that, mo. Yes, I am proud of him. And just as proud and thankful for all our military men and women.
I get mighty depressed these days with the path our country is on. Never thought I’d see the day where so many of our fellow Americans have forgotten the values and virtues that made our country great.
I believe they mean to grab monies off of retirement accounts. Dems like to hide behind feel good words.
It has been said to the degree one has to fight and resist evil simply evidences the degree and measure of what one stands to gain by continuing that resistance. That is what we are seeing...there is more at stake here than I think the wisest of us realize.
They don’t want to expose their hand. They are such a despicable lot.
Yes, but will we be able to undo it?
Bookmark for another insane Obamanation.
No kidding. Bring it on!!! The dems think the American public will forget when they pass this piece of crud. We won’t!!!
That's exactly what I intended to post, so thanks!
Go to a religious store. Buy a little booklet on the rosary. It is EASY. You NEVER really forget. Then get on those rosaries....:)
I have faith it will be OK>
Absolutely. That’s why the opposition tries to take God out of everything. If you don’t have rules to follow...religious or otherwise...you can behave any way you want without guilt. EXCEPT...that’s what they will find out is wrong...on so wrong. They will find out one day and I hope I am not standing close by when they do. Pray, pray, pray...it’s the answer. Over and over and over again.
I hope to God some one comes up with a way of stopping this on constitutional/legal ground. I am beyond nervous. I have been calling the congressmen/women all morning. Right now, I don’t know what to do, but I know I have to do something.
Excellent summation and analysis, Mr. Noble.
“...November seems so far away....”
November 2, 2010 is 236 days away an counting down.
Lenin was smart. So was Hitler, Napolean and Mao. In fact, I can’t think of a single TYRANT who wasn’t smart.
Remind your ‘friend’ about that.
The Rise of Antichrist by the Counterfeit Work of Satan (2 Thess. 2:9-10)
In these verses we actually see the second effect and detail regarding the man of lawlessness. The first was his unveiling, but this is quickly countered by the promise of his destruction by the manifestation of the parousia of Christ at His advent to earth. Now another detail is given, namely, the source of the lawless ones coming (parousia) and deceptive working in the world. It will be by Satans working. Literally, whose coming is in accordance with a working of Satan. This answers the question, Why and how will the lawless one be able to so quickly deceive the world into following him to the point they even worship him? As it was also revealed to John in Rev. 13, it is because he is Satans man; he is Satan-inspired, enabled, and indwelt, and evidently, the world will understand this and wont care.
And the whole world followed the beast in amazement; they worshiped the dragon because he had given ruling authority to the beast, and they worshiped the beast too, saying: Who is like the beast? and Who is able to make war against him? The beast was given a mouth speaking proud words and blasphemies, and he was permitted to exercise ruling authority for forty-two months. So the beast opened his mouth to blaspheme against Godto blaspheme both his name and his dwelling place, that is, those who dwell in heaven. The beast was permitted to go to war against the saints and conquer them. He was given ruling authority over every tribe, people, language, and nation, and all those who live on the earth will worship the beast, everyone whose name has not been written since the foundation of the world in the book of life belonging to the Lamb who was killed. If anyone has an ear, he had better hear! Rev. 13:3-9.
The best booklet that I have found on the Rosary is entitled ‘Holy Hour of Reparation’ which was printed in 1945 and is available from These Last Days Ministries.
Google it and you will find it online.
There is also the Confraternity of the Most Holy Rosary which is under the pastoral care of the Dominican Order.
So long as ONE person in America is praying the Holy Rosary, the hand of Divine punishment and chastisement will be stayed.
I shudder to think what will happen when that last soul stops praying the Rosary.
Keep praying [I say this as a reminder for myself].
THANKS THANKS for your excellent post
and for your kind words.
WHEN one matches up such Scriptures with various UFO, Nephilium, fallen angel data . . . it all becomes exceedingly plausible.
WHEN ALMIGHTY GOD is cast by the world’s media etc. as a 2nd rate also-ran ‘ET’ . . . and Christ as CREATED for social engineering purposes by such ET’s . . .
WHEN the then sprung openly on the world—the ‘ET’s’ appear in all their technological and demonic glory . . . seeming to be in effective charge of the whole planet . . .
such Scriptures fall even more emphatically in place in our era.
All the more so, if, as some contend . . .
said ET’s are
DRACOS . . . reptillians . . . dragons.
Your “If . . . will be stayed.”
will crash and burn as untrue.
What will you be likely to think then?
IF SHE WILL NOT CONFESS, REPENT AND TURN 180 DEGREES,
May Pelousey speedily reap what she assaults others with.
In my experience,
God is MUCH MORE TOUCHED AND MOVED BY EARNEST SPONTANEOUS PRAYERS OF THE HEART
THAN HE EVER IS by ANY ritualized repetitions of canned prayers.
March 12 (Bloomberg) -- President Barack Obama is delaying his trip to Asia to work on health-care legislation as Republicans claimed a parliamentary victory in their effort to derail the measure.
Thank you, fightinJAG. I don’t know anyone who understands the gyrations going on. It all stinks to high heaven, anyway.
I wish there was some provision where the People could just shut down the Legislature when they get way off track like this. They’re acting out like teenagers.
We would be so much better off with no legislation whatsoever. Congress should exist only to allocate necessary monies, primarily to the Defense.
I pray the lesson-givers in that case have finally(?) become lesson-learners. The GOP is all that is standing between us and total ruin of this nation. They are in the gap, they are holding down the fort. Send them re-inforcements this Fall and PLEASE do not hold out for "perfection."
Who said, "The perfect is the enemy of the good?"
Not the way to go. You wouldn't be a DU-er trolling, would you?
From your lips to God’s ears!!
Um, you are off topic, but I guess that’s what RDS does to people. You “RINOs are more dangerous than ‘Rats” crowd are so boring and predictable.
Beautiful testimony to the Rosary.
No - I have never been to DU.
Very well said!
You're a much better person than me, with much better instincts.
I was going to suggest that "There Will be Blood" but I will pray instead.
Thanks Dita (((((Hugs))))))
november is MEANINGLESS IF THIS HAPPENS NOW.
It is NOW OR NEVER.
We must focus on the 5 votes they need to pass this monster.
What??? Are they trying to seat someone from DC ?
For religious issues, Barna is the source for polls.
Christian Support for Obama Declines
“Barack Obamas first year in office has been difficult for him and the country. The latest survey by The Barna Group examines the publics reactions to the presidents performance during his initial year in the White House. The study explores his overall job performance rating; how his efforts compare to peoples ideological perceptions; and how people rate his work in relation to the economy, environment, terrorism, health care, taxation, the Middle East, and reforming the political system.

But you gotta admit the lighning bolt would be cool ;o)
The US is BROKE!
The District of Corruption losers will be water boarded and guillotined by citizen tribunals.
Good post devolve.
Will have to look through this thread later
