All the News That's Fit to be Tied

I have an axe to grind, but unlike the New York Times, I freely admit it.

Washington Healthcare Alert

The Democrats and their willing lackeys in the mainstream media are putting up a good fight for the Senate version of the Healthcare Bill. And make no mistake the Senate version is what they are voting for. The entire reconciliation process in the House is just a diversion. It is designed to keep the press busy so the Democratic leadership can strong arm members into voting for it. If the House passes this bill it will become law. It will include the Louisiana Purchase, The Cornhusker Kickback, The Senator Dodd Hospital in Connecticut, the Cadillac Plan payoff for the Unions and the other unappetizing deals Senator Reid made to get the bill through the first time. The provisions of the House “deem to pass” bill will be dismissed outright or ruled out of order by the Senate because there is no way another version of this bill is coming up for a vote. House members will never see the changes they are voting for. The Senate has the bill it wants and the betrayal of your member will be overlooked. The truth is that this bill is the foundation of single-payer. Once passed the mechanism for government controlled healthcare will be in place. Make sure your House member knows he or she is voting for Senate Bill as is.
