How About a ‘Slaughter Solution’ at the Polls in November?

Imagine you’re a House member and you have this dilemma: You want to pass a health care bill that is wildly unpopular, and you know that if you vote for it, you’ll be kicked out of office in November.

The fix? Simple: Pass it without technically voting on it. Voila! The “Slaughter Solution” leaves no fingerprints on the massive power and money grab (especially our fingerprints, because we’re not allowed to see what’s in it).

From the Daily Caller:

Republicans now expect Democrats to pass health care through the House with a trick only Capitol Hill could dream up: approving the Senate bill without voting on it. It’s called the “Slaughter Solution.” (named for Rep. Louise Slaughter)

And after debating House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer on the chamber floor, Minority Whip Eric Cantor emerged convinced that Democrats are going to use the tactic, and that they won’t allow Republicans, and the public, to see the text of any legislation for 72 hours before a vote.
House Democrats have been searching for a way to alleviate members’ concerns that if they vote for the Senate bill and the Senate does nothing to fix it, they will be hung out to dry as having supported a piece of legislation that many across the country dislike, either for spending reasons, or because of special provisions like the extra money for Nebraska’s Medicaid population (the “Cornhusker kickback”).

Technically, using the “Slaughter solution,” they’ll never have voted for the bill they find odious, even if their vote on the reconciliation legislation will have been the vote that passed the Senate bill into law.

Ladies and gentlemen, Washington has set a new record for weasels, worms, slimewads and scumbags. Democrats are so proud of this bill (if there even is one) and it will be so good for America that most of them don’t want their names associated with it? Well count me in!

There is an ongoing overthrow of our (former) Constitutional Republic, and their goal is to have it completed by the time we can get to the polls in November.

The word “treason” is thrown around once in a while, but there’s almost no other way to view what’s going on in Congress with the full support of the White House. This is a coup d’état, with the government overthrowing us.

Here’s a brief video explanation of exactly how the “Slaughter solution” works — or rather how it usurps the Constitution (“The what?” Yeah, I know):

Mark Levin promises to take this to court if it happens:

If a court ruling were to overturn the Slaughter solution, look for the House to simply pass the “Nuh uh! Didn’t hear it! LA LA LA LA!” rule and keep doing whatever they want anyway.

Let’s start calling this coming November elections the “Slaughter Solution,” shall we? Two can play this game.
