Hello Kossacks, here is Shuttlepod entry #14 in today's health insurance reform debate in the House of Representatives.  

Please do NOT rec this diary, but instead, recommend the Mothership by Adam Blomeke, to insure that the conversation stays on the DKos Rec List.

To watch the debate, go here: CSPAN.

CSPAN Video Library of the Rules Committee Meetings last night:

Session 1

Session 2

Session 3

Session 4

There was a boatload of baloney in these meetings.  I just watched the last session, which was all of the votes to grant waivers on bogus Republican Amendments  You can read them all here.  I wish someone could have invoked the language of Robert Byrd:

I make the point that when the Senate is operating under cloture the Chair is required to take the initiative under rule XXII to rule out of order all amendments which are dilatory or which on their face are out of order.

The elephants and the morans are kicking it into overdrive this weekend.  Here are just a few examples that I know of that have been diaried about:

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
