    Health Rules Changes

    Health Rules Changes - Jamie Dupree on wsbradio.com

    The lines were buzzing on talk radio the last two days about a provision in the Senate health care bill that would not allow a future Congress to repeal or amend part of a new health care law and would change the rules of the House and Senate along the way.
    The issue centers around Section 3403 of the Democratic bill in the Senate that lays out how the Congress would deal with recommendations from a special Medicare Commission, which would be charged with finding ways to save money in the program.

    The panel would send Congress its recommendations, then lawmakers would have to approve them on an up or down vote, with no changes, just like the decisions made in the past by military base closing panels.

    The text of the bills says that once the panel is set up, Congress can't tinker with its makeup.

    "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."
    What complete and utter garbage this is.

    Who can support this nonsense?
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Dem's know that they are in for a beating in Nov. and don't want the GOP to come behind them and destroy their vote insurance scheme.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Making Congress into a rubber-stamp?

    Now, where have I heard that before?

    I'll bet just about every liberal/dem proponent of The Obama's bill will support this provision.
