House may try to pass Senate health-care bill without voting on it

• Washington Post
After laying the groundwork for a decisive vote this week on the Senate's health-care bill, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi suggested Monday that she might attempt to pass the measure without having members vote on it.

Instead, Pelosi (D-Calif.) would rely on a procedural sleight of hand: The House would vote on a more popular package of fixes to the Senate bill; under the House rule for that vote, passage would signify that lawmakers "deem" the health-care bill to be passed.

Any health care bill Obama pushes is contaminated at this point. Most Americans don’t trust Obama or House Democrats to pass a health bill that discloses its true costs to taxpayers. House Democrats when pushing prior defective health bills have too much resembled gangsters in methods used to force health insurance down the throats of Americans. House Democrats repeatedly include threats and penalties, even jail to force Americans to buy health insurance and from certain companies. Democrats increasingly have an odor of Corruption. Repeatedly Democrats have appeared intended to hold Citizens hostage like a (mob protection racket) to higher and higher health insurance premiums and rising medical costs; and prior would have exempted from taxes and penalties special groups, e.g. labor unions and government employees that make higher salaries than most in private sector jobs. Obama has overdosed the public with his obsession to pass a health care bill 70% of Americans don’t want to hear about anymore while he is in Office.
