Congress Secret Plan to Get Obamacare Passed--Confirmed!

I received this be email this afternoon as well. This information is CONFIRMED. Not rumor.

The ramifications of this bill passing will be great. Americans will NOT stand for this betrayal by these traitors. Many members of Congress will be looking for work in 2010. Let's do everything we possibly can to stop this bill from passing!

From The Heritage Foundation: Frighteningly Confirmed: Congress’ Secret Plan To Privately Pass Obamacare

pelosiandhoyer
The Heritage Foundation:
Leaders in the House and Senate have a plan to pass President Barack Obama’s sweeping health care plan by Thanksgiving without any significant participation by the American public. CNS News has confirmed the details in our September 22nd titled “Passing a Shell of A Bill: Congress’ Secret Plan to Ram Through Health Care Reform.” Nicholas Ballasy reports “a senior aide to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) told
CNSNews.com that it is ‘likely’ that Reid will use H.R. 1586—a bill passed by the House in March to impose a 90-percent tax on bonuses paid to employees of certain bailed-out financial institutions—as a ‘shell’ for enacting the final version of the Senate’s health care bill, which Reid is responsible for crafting.”
This story confirms the four part scenario that would railroad the bill through the Senate using a very unusual closed door procedure to craft the bill with no input from the American people.
The four stage plan to pass Obamacare has been publicly confirmed and is ready to be implemented. The following is a comprehensive update:
Step One: “The Senate Finance Committee will finish work on the marking up of Senator Max Baucus’ (D-MT) conceptual framework for legislation by this Friday.” Progress on this had been stalled and the bill was not passed by the end of last week.
Foxnews.com is reporting that the Congressional Budget Office score of the bill will be released later today and a high score may further stall progress on the Committee’s Vapor Bill. Senate Finance Committee’s progress on passing something out of committee – INCOMPLETE.
Step Two: Next, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid will take the final product of the Senate Finance Committee and merge it with the product of the Senate Health, Education, Labor & Pensions (HELP) Committee. CNSnews.com has confirmed that “the actual final text of the legislation will be determined by Reid himself, who will consolidate the legislation approved by the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee and the still-unapproved legislation from the Senate Finance Committee. Reid will be able to draft and insert textual language that was not expressly approved by either committee.” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid will write the final version of Obamacare to be considered in the Senate with no input from the American people. This is an extremely complex procedure that will not be done in public, or in the form of a hearing, or a public conference committee, and only Senator Harry Reid, some other Senators chosen by Reid and Obama Administration officials will be allowed to read the bill before the Senate debate starts. Merger of the bills – IN PROGRESS.
Step Three: Senator Reid will then move to proceed to H.R. 1586, a bill to impose a tax on bonuses received by certain TARP recipients. A senior aid to Senate Majority Leader Ried has confirmed that he will move to proceed to Senate Calendar Number 36, H.R. 1586, or another House passed tax measure, so the Senate can avoid the Constitutional mandate that tax bills originate in the House. Proceed to tax shell of a bill – CONFIRMED.
Step Four: This scenario would most likely be implemented after the Massachusetts state legislature gives Governor Deval Patrick the power to appoint a new Senator and that Senator is seated by the Senate. The Senate swore in new Massachusetts Senator Paul Kirk on September 25th. Change Law of Massachusetts to allow for interim Senator – COMPLETE.
The final step in this plan is for the House to take up Obama care, without amending the legislation, and then sending that bill directly to the President for his signature. Matt Cover at CNSnews.com reports “House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) won’t rule out having the House vote on the Senate health-care bill without making any changes in it, which would allow the bill to go directly to President Barack Obama without having to pass through a House-Senate conference committee and another round of votes in the House and Senate–and a longer period of public scrutiny of what the text of the proposed law actually says.” This scenario is in the process of being implemented and, if successful, it will result in Obamacare being on the President’s desk in time for Thansgiving with minimal participation of the American public.
The San Francisco Examiner published an editorial today that exposed the fact that the American people can’t see the bill. “When then-Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama promised not to sign major legislation until it had been posted on the Internet for public reading at least five days, trusting voters took him at his word. Now they know better. Not only is the actual language of what is likely to become the main legislative vehicle for Obama’s signature health care reform not available on the Internet, it hasn’t been given to members of the key Senate committees or the Congressional Budget Office.” The procedure being used, in addition to the exclusion of the American people from the process, should be of grave concern to all who want to participate in democracy and have a say in Congress’ health care reforms that will touch 1/6th of the American economy.

I hope Harry Reid thrives after he retires from the US Senate...

Holy Crap, this is worse every day, Opie. And then I read on Gateway Pundit that obummer is partnering with the Taliban! This is a nightmare! I don't know what to do anymore, I"m calling/emailing, but I'm afraid it's all for naught...we have to vote them ALL OUT, but it will be too late. Dear Lord, Help us.

Lucky Girl said...

Wow this is scary..thanks for the heads up!

Opus #6 said...

LL, your attitude drips of the milk of human kindness.

Opus #6 said...

Bunni, prayer is always in order.

Opus #6 said...

Lucky girl, welcome! With any luck, we will live in a constitutional republic someday.

Dr. Dave said...

THERE IS NO BAUCUS BILL.

Opus #6 said...

Dr. Dave, correct. They referred to Sen Baucus' "conceptual framework" in this article.

I call it something else. I call it a blank check for these hoodlums to overthrow our republic.

Nickie Goomba said...

This is a great post, Ope, but I actually felt physically ill while reading it. I'm watching my country destroyed and looted by Socialists.

Opus #6 said...

Nickie, I feel the same way. I have a new tag for the posts this week. "These politicians make me sick." I can't think of another label for all of this.

The_Kid said...

I find it fascinating that they have the thing scheduled to go into effect in 2013.

I'm assuming this would stand if the Repubs win. The absolute horror of the effects of natl health care would then be tagged to the repubs. The Dems and the state run media would be sure to make that happen. I can hear the bimbos on msnbc yapping away about how the repubs have screwed up "obama's perfect vision of health care."

But the fact that they KNOW they can tag it on the Repubss purely by not having it go into effect until then proves how stupid their voter base is and how confident of that stupidity they are.

Hear that Dems? They Know that you are so stupid that they can play this in such an obvious fashion and not be the least bit worried that you'll 'catch on'.

It's like they are slapping you in the face, pointing to some guy across the room saying "He did it" and you believe them. Holy Carp. No exaggeration.

I mean, God, is there NO Spark of self respect within you?

And if their legions of morons actually manage to vote them in again in 2012, they'll simply delay it until 2017.

The greatest country in the world, brought to it's knees by the dumbest sob's to ever walk the planet. That would be the media and the obama supporters.

Let's think a year out...I don't think this is all bad, even if they pass this, it will take years for it to take effect, while the level of anger towards congress will only rise. The left will be angry because nothing has changed as far as health care goes, the economy will worsen as public confidence in the economy drops, Obama will halfheartedly send a few more troops to Afganistan but not enough to make a difference. So passing this will be fresh on the minds of voters in 2010. There will be such anger over this that the rioting will lead to a midterm election that will lead to this, and everything else the commies want getting overturned. This upcoming election may make 94 look like 06. The more the dems overreach, the likelyhood of every incumbent up for reelection getting voted out increases. Also, the healthcare plan doesn't kick in until 2013, that is a long time for it to get repealed if it passes. I don't trust any rumor coming out of Capitol hill right now. It would be a huge humiliation for Reid and Pelosi to actually have votes and lose. I believe there are quite a few moderate dems on Capitol hill who are very unhappy with their leadership and this could just as easily lead to a majority party leadership coup as a bill passage. Nobody really knows what will pass, but I know that if they had the votes, they would pass it yesterday, not next week.

Z said...

I can't add anything more than Kidd's last paragraph..AMEN

Opus #6 said...

Kid, hopefully the delay in implementation will give us time to repeal anything that goes through.

Opus #6 said...

Andrew, thank you for your hopeful comment. Surely if they had the votes this would be a done deal. But they are sneaky. I worry.

Opus #6 said...

Z, I guess it all comes down to confidence in the American people.

Candle said...

This is the kind of stuff that makes me mad. I won't say anymore.

The Conservative Lady said...

Opie:
Thanks for posting this, I think. I gotta go...I'm about to lose my lunch.

The_Kid said...

Z, Thanks.

Opus, that is my thought. Because I'm an optimistic person. Realist, but optimistic.

Opus #6 said...

Candle, it is an ugly reality that must be confronted to be defeated.

Opus #6 said...

Conservative Lady, sorry for the ickiness. We really do need to look this square in the face, though. No free pass to these bozos.

Opus #6 said...

Kid, when I see the American people in action, like they were on 9/12 (see top pic on my blog) I am in awe of the potential for good. It is these fellow patriots who give me hope in dark days.
