<u>By Debbie Schlussel</u>

As you know by now, yesterday the ObamaCare formula for nationalizing healthcare passed–making us no different than Canada, the UK, and most other flailing Western democracies from which excellent doctors have fled. It will ruin our already dying economy, irreparably. If you like the current levels of job loss, you’ll love the enactment of this bill. Today, it’s the set of “Deliverance,” and all of America is Ned Beatty.

Today, All of America is Ned Beatty in “Deliverance”

But all is not lost. There is a “sidecar bill” of amendments that the House passed along with the actual bill. Hopefully, many of the provisions in the House bill may be challenged and struck down in the Senate. Unfortunately, that is set for a railroading, too, with the Senate setting “reconciliation” rules requiring only 50 votes for passage. We’ll see what happens. Even if there are some things that get struck down, though, it’s a disaster. We can only hope that enough is struck down that much of the teeth of the legislation are removed. That’s not likely. </div></div>

Reconciliation is not going to be that simple. Each part of the bill must be voted on individually, and each part must meet the requirement of cost cutting before it can be allowed. Of course, as we have seen, the Dems aren't too worried about following the rules of their own chamber, so we will see.

My greater point was how our collectivist members cling so desperately to Ms Schlussel's slander against conservatives, claiming she simply is right because she "ISN'T BACKING DOWN" yet disavow her when she says Obamacare is a public porking and that Media Matters is funded by the Nazis ... doublethink, indeed, is the only explanation for such curious logic.
