It Seems Pretty Clear How the Radical Progressive Dems Are Going to Try to Ram Their Public Option Health Care Bill Right Down Our Throats.
In the days to come, look for an allegedly "moderate" bill to come out of Senate majority leader Harry Reid and his minions -- a bill with no public option or a somewhat watered down one (perhaps with state opt-out rights or a "trigger"), and a bill which will be able to get 60 votes in the Senate. Then, such bill will go to conference committee, where dems will "merge" it with the House's massive Pelosi bill and its much more "robust" public option. Look for such "merger" to be little more than making the Senate-passed Reid bill look much more like the Pelosi bill, i.e. taking the Reid bill and driving it very far to the left. Once that process is complete, as best as I can tell, the only vote that would be needed to pass the "merged" bill in the Senate would be a vote that only requires 50 or 51 votes -- and not 60. I don't know folks, but I think we can see this one coming up Main Street from these sneaks. You had to know, with all of the immense power that the radical progressives now wield in Washington, Congress and all across the spectrum of our federal government, that they would probably find a way to ram-rod their massive ultra-liberal health care legislation through Congress. I still hope they fail in this endeavor, because most Americans do not want this. We want reform and change to the health insurance system, but we do not want this. That is, most of us do not want health care legislation that is designed to (and will likely ultimately result in) total federal government control of the health insurance industry. What a nightmare.
