Worth Reading Speaker Pelosi thinks that she can wave her magic wand and â€˜deemâ€™ a bill passed. What does this mean? This means that she wants to have the U.S. House of Representatives pass a bill without voting on it.
Are you mad, yet?
Nancy Pelosi and Barack Obama are on the verge of socializing a major portion of our American economy. Under this scheme, you will be forced to purchase Obamaâ€™s government-run health care.
â– This government takeover of health care will affect 100% of Americans â€“ born and unborn â€“ for generations to come. Obama and Pelosi have intentionally deceived the American people about taxpayer-funding of abortion. It is a fact that this bill authorizes an unprecedented, profound and alarming increase of tax money for other peopleâ€™s abortions â€“ the largest increase of government-funded abortion since Roe v. Wade. Is this what you want?
â– To add insult to injury, Pelosi now wants to rewrite the Constitution and pass the bill without a vote! Itâ€™s a travesty for the House of Representatives to cowardly shirk its responsibilities and pretend to vote on an unprecedented and unconstitutional proposal â€“ the so-called â€œSlaughter Rule.â€
â– Even liberals are cautioning against the use of â€˜deemingâ€™ (or the Slaughter Rule) as a legislative strategy. George Washington Law School professor Alan Morrison, a litigator for the liberal group Public Citizen, is opposed to using the Slaughter Rule. He has stated: â€œIf I were advising somebody [on the Slaughter Solution], I would say to them, â€˜Donâ€™t do it.â€™ â€œWhat does â€˜deemâ€™ mean? In class, I always say it means â€˜letâ€™s pretend.â€™ â€˜Deemâ€™ means itâ€™s not true.â€
If House Members are not going to do their job by voting directly on the bill, then we are left with no choice: we will consider their vote on â€˜The Slaughter Ruleâ€™ as a vote for the pro-abortion Senate Bill. Weâ€™ll hold each and every one of them accountable. More: http://worthreading.ning.com/profiles/blogs/mad-yet
