This wouldn't be the first time Obama has got a way round the accepted democratic channels [see Obamachart HERE] and the Slaughter Solution could well cause a spark to further problems. Certainly that's what Glenn- this-is-equivalent-to-Pearl-Harbour Beck thinks! A tad OTT Glenn but I know what you mean!
House Rules Chairwoman Louise Slaughter is prepping to help usher the healthcare overhaul through the House and potentially avoid a direct vote on the Senate overhaul bill...
Slaughter is weighing preparing a rule that would consider the Senate bill passed once the House approves a corrections bill that would make changes to the Senate version.
Update Tuesday, 11:30 am ET: Well I guess everyone knows how it went, I watched some of it live on Sunday night: 7 votes seperated the counts so the difference between 'win/lose' was only 4 votes; now: "The vote is over. The fight is just beginning."... ..."Repercussions from the 219-to-212 vote late Sunday in favor of the Senate's original health care bill could be enormous." [USA Today]. Listening to Joe Biden introduce Obama just now was seriously nauseous but with one bonus good for a laugh. :-)
