Self Executing Rule

In Health care on March 17, 2010 at 3:35 am

Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Tuesday that she is still considering a legislative procedure that would allow the House of Representatives to pass health care reform without voting on the bill the Senate passed in December.

“We have several options available to us,” Pelosi said when asked about the procedure. “We’ve asked the parliamentarian and the Rules Committee to tell us what our options are and they have given us some. I have told our members that until we see the substance from the CBO,we won’t have an indication about how to go forward, but we want to know what our options are.Under a maneuver known as a “self-executing rule,” health care would be deemed to have passed once House members approve a package of fixes they want to make in the Senate bill.

It’s still our country, call or write your senator or Congressman today…. We must stop this and not allow a group to destroy our country!  Jam the switchboard, E-mail and call the local offices.  They are going to try to put this over on us without even a vote!
