Pelosi Breaks Pledge to Put Final Health Care Bill Online for 72 Hours Before Vote

Speaker Nancy Pelosi's office tells THE WEEKLY STANDARD that the speaker will not allow the final language of the health care to be posted online for 72 hours before bringing the bill to a vote on the House floor, despite her September 24 statement that she was "absolutely" committed to doing so.

House members are still negotiating important issues in the bill--whether it will provide taxpayer-funding for abortions, for example. Pelosi is pushing for a Saturday House vote, and a number of big changes will be introduced, likely less than 24 hours before the vote takes place (if in fact it does). The Rules Committee hasn't yet released its resolution, or rule, that must be passed before the bill can move from committee to the floor. The rule will set the terms of debate and determine what amendments are in order.

It seems likely that the rule will allow very few, if any, up-or-down votes on amendments on the House floor. Rather, the rule will include a series of amendments that will all be adopted at once if the rule passes.

On September 24, Speaker Nancy Pelosi told THE WEEKLY STANDARD that she was "absolutely" committed to putting the text of the final House bill online for 72 hours before the House votes:

The following is from washingtonpost.com. I love this comment from the DNC spokesperson:

"If the Republican Party wants to make Michele Bachmann the voice of the party, that's more than fine with us," Democratic National Committee spokesman Hari Sevugan said in a statement. "It's their extreme right-wing, rigid ideological agenda that has Americans leaving the Republican Party in droves -- and so, if displays like today are what they think is a smart political strategy, all we can say is: Go for it."

Health-care protest at Capitol draws thousands

By Philip Rucker
Washington Post Staff Writer
Thursday, November 5, 2009; 2:53 PM

Thousands of emboldened conservative activists converged on Capitol Hill for a midday rally Thursday, a last-ditch effort to kill the Democrats' health-care reform legislation they called "Pelosi Care."

Protesters from across the Eastern Seaboard waved flags, held signs and rang cowbells as their chants of "Kill This Bill" echoed across the Mall. Dozens of Republican lawmakers, led by Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.), stood on the Capitol steps and pledged to do everything they could to defeat the health-care reform bill by Saturday, when House members plan to vote.

"You came! You came to your House!" said Bachmann, who organized the "Hands Off Our Health Care!" rally in recent days with impassioned pleas on conservative talk radio and cable television shows.

"Quite simply the Republicans don't have enough votes to kill this bill," Bachmann said. "We knew we were limited. But what we knew was unlimited were the voices of persuasion of the American people."

Bachmann had promised to lead activists to the offices of Democratic senators and representatives, including moderate Blue Dog Democrats, who she believes could be swayed to vote against the health bill.

Many of the protesters are members of local "Tea Party" movements and have demonstrated in recent months against health-care reform in Washington and in communities across the country. Democrats cast the demonstrators as an "extreme Tea Party crowd."

"If the Republican Party wants to make Michele Bachmann the voice of the party, that's more than fine with us," Democratic National Committee spokesman Hari Sevugan said in a statement. "It's their extreme right-wing, rigid ideological agenda that has Americans leaving the Republican Party in droves -- and so, if displays like today are what they think is a smart political strategy, all we can say is: Go for it."

Hours before the rally began, Capitol Police arrested nine protesters in the Hart Senate Office Building and charged them with unlawful entry. It was unclear whether the protesters were affiliated with the Tea Party protests or were with other groups. They were arrested about 10 a.m. in the seventh-floor office of Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman (I-Conn.), a Capitol Police spokeswoman said.

"They were inside an office and didn't leave," Sgt. Kimberly Schneider said.

In front of the Capitol, a parade of Republican lawmakers used fiery rhetoric to build on the momentum of their party's electoral victories Tuesday and stop health-care reform, President Obama's top domestic policy priority.

"As a physician, I've read the majority of this bill and I've got a diagnosis: It's legislative malpractice," said Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.).

Rep. Mike Pence (R-Ind.), chairman of the Republican Caucus, said the health-care bill is "a freight train of government spending" and said the demonstrators were delivering a message to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.):

"Madam Speaker: We the people are tired of runaway spending in Washington, D.C., and we the people want health reform that lowers the cost of health care, not grows the size of the federal government," Pence said.

Conservative activists who traveled far to come to Washington seemed moved by the speeches. Scott Krafft, 51, an investment consultant from Ft. Wayne, Ind., drove 10 hours overnight with his wife and three children to attend. He said he was inspired to attend by listening to Bachmann this week on Sean Hannity's radio show.

"We want to keep capitalism and individual responsibility at the center of our society," Krafft said. "We love the Constitution of the United States that has given us the greatest country in the world. The principles of our founding are being eroded very quickly."
