Democracy, what democracy?!?...... I present to you The Slaughter Solution

Via Bookworm Room:  Pelosi is not sure she's got the votes she needs to circumvent the will of the American people so it's possible they are going to try another tact--just leave the House out of the equation on the monster health care bill since some of them are actually showing some backbone (or want to keep their jobs that badly) so that jobs for siblings, in-shower confrontations, and other bribery and strong arm tactics aren't as effective as they hoped.  Forget reconciliation--that's for pansy-ass folks who actually want to try to work within the system.  They're developing  The Slaughter Solution.

Per the article:

House Rules Chairwoman Louise Slaughter is prepping to help usher the healthcare overhaul through the House and potentially avoid a direct vote on the Senate overhaul bill, the chairwoman said Tuesday.

Slaughter is weighing preparing a rule that would consider the Senate bill passed once the House approves a corrections bill that would make changes to the Senate version.

All I have to say is that people have been holding back because they still, down deep, believe the system works and they are trying to work within it.  If they actually pull this stunt, and if the House lets it happen, I really don't think they'll need to fear for their jobs, they are going to need to fear for their lives.  I'm not making a threat, but they really need to wake up and realize that the American people are on the edge here.  They've turned the heat up on the frog way too quickly and we're getting ready to leap out of the pot.
