Obama wants the House to pass health care turd into law and then hope the senate will polish it
This is just crazy. The House passed 290 bills in just the last 14 months that were totally ignored by the Senate. That is a lot of work wasted and must have left a bad taste in the mouths of the representatives.

So now Obama is telling the House to pass the Health Care Bill which no one likes because it is full of shit but he is saying that after he signs it into law the Senate will makes some nifty changes that will polish the turd and make it shine.

Sounds like an idiotic plan to me. It isn't how things are supposed to work when you are dealing with a trillion dollar bill that will fundamentally change one six of the American economy.

Here's what the House Democrats are being asked to do. They're being asked by the president to hold hands, jump off a cliff and hope (Senate Majority Leader) Harry Reid catches them in the Senate after the bill is law," said Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn.

"Trust the untrustworthy Senate," is the message Rep. Anthony Weiner says Democrats are being asked to do this week. Weiner, D-N.Y., who supports a so-called public option that is not in the Senate bill, suggested in a statement Sunday that trust is a big leap for lawmakers who've seen 290 bills passed by the House ignored by the Senate in the last 14 months.

To make matters more complicated, Democratic leaders are considering an option -- never tried before -- to avoid getting stuck with a recorded "yes" vote on a Senate bill they oppose by using a maneuver that some authorities say is unconstitutional.

The procedural move -- proposed by Rep. Louise Slaughter, D-N.Y., chairwoman of the House Rules Committee, would allow Democrats to usher through the Senate bill (which, by the way, still has a House numerical designation) without actually having a vote "on passage" of the legislation.

"The alarming thing that I'm hearing now is that (House) Speaker (Nancy) Pelosi is thinking about bending the rules and, frankly, making it so there's not a direct vote on the Senate health care bill," Rep. Eric Cantor, D-Va., told "Fox News Sunday."
