Re: Hope and change

The rest of the story (RIP Mr. Harvey).

Slaughter Solution (click here)

Quote:
Republicans have been railing against the proposed move by House Democrats to combine a vote on the Senate version of the health care bill with a vote on a bill to make changes to that bill under budget reconciliation -- a tactic they are calling the "Slaughter Solution," after House Rules Chairman Rep. Louise Slaughter.

"The 'Slaughter Solution' is the ultimate in Washington power grabs, a legislative ploy that lets Democrats defy the will of the American people while attempting to eliminate any trace of actually doing so," House Republican Leader John Boehner (pictured) said.

But it's worth noting that this "Washington power grab" was used 36 times by House Republicans in 2005 and 2006, when they last controlled Congress, according to the Brookings Institution's Thomas Mann.

"The reauthorization of the Patriot Act, the Tax Relief Reconciliation Act, the Deficit Control Conference Report; all kinds of major measures have been approved through self-executing rules, which means the House votes indirectly rather than separately on these measures," Mann told NPR. He also noted that Democrats used the maneuver 49 times in the following Congress, which they controlled.

The American Enterprise Institute's Norman J. Ornstein echoed Mann's comments in a blog post Tuesday, noting the use of the move in the last GOP Congress by then-Republican Rules Committee Chairman David Dreier.

"That strategy, then decried by the House Democrats who are now using it, and now being called unconstitutional by [Wall Street Journal] editorialists, was defended by House Republicans in court (and upheld)," he wrote. "Dreier used it for a $40 billion deficit reduction package so that his fellow GOPers could avoid an embarrassing vote on immigration."

Never have so many politicians, screwed so many Americans...just to make one black person lose his job.

Re: Hope and change

That was exactly my point.

It's funny that crying 'foul' ........................is solely dependent on whose ox is getting gored.

Re: Hope and change

But did any of those things give the government that much control of the economy?

Actually, it is 100% up to us. Every two years there is an election. The hard part is getting the people that we respect to run for government office. Until that happens, we have to elect the less bad one.

Yes I know, every election turd like people campaign for our votes, voters then try to determine which turd is less full of sh!t.

The hard part is finding non turd like people that will respect us, actually do their job and remain honorable public servants after they're elected.

What is worse is we propagate these turd like people by giving them too much power too many benefits and too much time to flourish in a corrupt environment which they orchestrate.
They live fat and happy because most of the country believe they know what is best for us.
The turd like people have forgotten we are the boss not them.

Time to flush by saying STFU, you're fired.
