Leaving a meeting of the House Democratic Caucus, lawmakers said they had received few details about what would be in the legislation, on which they may be asked to vote in the next week or two
Read this article… PLEASE read this article from the NY Times. Lawmakers (Democrats) do NOT know what is being put into the bill they will be *asked* to vote on next week !!!! How can we sit back and let this be ???? Where is the outrage? How can we possibly expect someone to vote on one of the biggest legislative packages to hit the floor of the Congress in decades…. without even having a chance to read the bill!! Granted, Pelosi and company don’t care if that’s the case and will twist arms to get the votes she needs… but to deny Americans and their elected representatives time to review the legislation before a vote is to be held is undemocratic, embarrassing, unethical, unpatriotic, etc , etc, etc.
Full Disclosure… I am a firm believer that our system requires reform… true health CARE reform. Not insurance reform marked up along side a whole host of taxes, and hand outs to banks, senators, states and other special interests….
