The New Transparency Goes Underground

Now it appears that Nancy Pelosi and Barrack Obama are plotting to get the Senate-passed health care bill passed in the House of Representatives without taking a vote. Instead, the House will vote on another bill (the so-called "reconciliation bill" and "deem" the Senate bill to have passed). Wow! That is a new way to govern. This is definitely "change."

A new transparency has emerged. House members can now pass a bill without a single member of the House having to have voted for it. That is designed to keep House members from defending an unpopular vote. I think I am beginning to see what Barrack Obama means by transparency. Try to find a way to pass the most unpopular legislation in American history and try to arrange things so that no one has to answer to the people, since no one has to vote for it! Great idea. I wonder if Barrack got that idea from his good buddy Hugo Chavez.

November is looking better and better.
