    Now let's look at some real-world facts, shall we?

    1.  Despite the huge ( and well written)explanation that  David has put together, the average American will see this as a non-vote, i.e. sneaking it past the voter.   I don't care that that's not the case.   It's just wayyyyyyyy too easy to make it the case and everybody, i mean everybody, on here knows that.
    1. Now let's just assume that it does pass that way and the Dems don't absolutely collapse form the incessant repeat of "It wasn't even voted on" (a HUGE 'if').  We will then have the constitutionality test, insuring that Health Care remains an issue for at least another year, and that its provisions may get stayed pending a decision.  We then have the constitutionality decided by a 5-4 Supreme Court majority that has made it quite clear that a correct reading of the Constitution is not their prime objective when it comes to defeating this President.   Is THIS really what we're all looking forward to?

    Forgive the sexism but it's time for the House to Man Up and do the right thing...ON THE FRIGGIN RECORD!!!!!

    •  Look when the House passes one bill and the (0+ / 0-)

      Senate passes its version, no one demands a vote by one chamber or the other on the other guy's bill first. They negotiate the difference, in a closed room (all my CPSAN watching over the years I have seen one conference committee opened up, none in the GOP control during Bush) and what is voted on is the  CONFERENCE REPORT. Signing by Pelosi and Byrd makes it a bill ready for the President.

      This is ridiculous to accept the framing. And ridiculous to accept bad reporting as the Democrats problem. I know more about House and Senate procedure than most of these over priced spokes models married to for Republican government officials.
