Odd Procedures

Pelosi wants to use what is being called the Slaughter Rule which would ‘deem’ the senate bill passed – without the members of the House voting on it, as is required by the Constitution.

Probably because they can’t even get enough votes using reconciliation – itself a questionable tactic in this context.

I suspect there will be a Constitutional challenge if they try this. The Democrats are bending a great many rules trying to ram this bill where nobody wants it to go. The expression ‘hell-bent’ comes to mind, where Pelosi and Obama are concerned.

You’d think they would take a hint.
