You did not think she was going to give up, did you? She’s a progressive socialist, and control of every single American’s life through healthcare is the brass ring. Do not be fooled by the “series of smaller sidebar healthcare provisions” language.
I am searching for the video for this quote. FoxNews had it this morning.
You go through the gate. If the gate’s closed, you go over the fence. If the fence is too high, we’ll pole-vault in. If that doesn’t work, we’ll parachute in. But we’re going to get health care reform passed for the American people.
Deaf and dumb….
House Democrats are readying a series of smaller “sidebar” healthcare provisions to introduce by mid-February even as they push for using reconciliation rules to move a broader healthcare package, according to leadership aides.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Thursday described a two-track healthcare strategy, in which House Democrats will look to move a number of smaller measures that can gain widespread support as they try to pressure the Senate into adopting, through reconciliation, a package of House-made changes to the Senate healthcare bill.
“Some things we can do on the side which may not fit into a bigger plan. That doesn’t mean that’s a substitute for doing comprehensive [healthcare reform]. It means we will move on many fronts, on any front we can.”
Using budget reconciliation rules to pass parts of the healthcare package would require only 51 votes in the Senate. But those rules can only be used to move provisions affecting the federal budget.
