Can you actually believe that this language is part of the health care bill? Every American, regardless of their ideology, should be horrified:
“It shall not be in order in the Senate or the House of Representatives to consider any bill, resolution, amendment, or conference report that would repeal or otherwise change this subsection”
Say goodbye to our Constitutional Republic, folks. This is an action that King George III would be proud of. Harry Reid, and anyone supporting this bill, including Republicans Kay Bailey Hutchinson, Olympia Snowe & Susan Collins, who, in choosing to end debate at points are complicit (and Snowe especially for voting it out of committee). Then, of course, we have to include the President of the United States in the list too. Each and every one of them are elitist, authoritarian and anti-American.
Mitch McConnell and the rest of the GOP also have blood on their hands for refusing to put out all the stops in fighting this. I could go on, but Erick Erickson of Red State does a superb job of explaining how McConnell and Alexander screwed the American people by rolling over and allowing this, for fear of being degraded by their Establishment buddies in the Beltway.
