The spin cycle has been loaded up with quarters by the Lefties and it’s just disgusting. Stepping barefoot upon a steamy pile of dog shit is better than engaging these people.The newest spin is how “deem and pass” has been used a number of times. Some of the spinners will concede it’s a crappy procedure but hey “majority rules”.
The thing is the Senate doesn’t work that way because our democracy,ironically,doesn’t work that way.
I would also like to point out the past instances of “deem and pass” pale in comparison to a trillion dollar,industry crushing,bureaucracy growing monster such as ObamaCare.
Some examples of recent occurences via the Congressional Record Service:
On August 2, 1989, the House adopted a rule (H.Res. 221) that
automatically incorporated into the text of the bill made in order for
consideration a provision that prohibited smoking on domestic airline
flights of two hours or less duration.
On March 19, 1996, the House adopted a rule (H.Res. 384) that
incorporated a voluntary employee verification program — addressing
the employment of illegal immigrants — into a committee substitute
made in order as original text.
H.Res. 239, agreed to on September 24, 1997, automatically incorporated
into the base bill a provision to block the use of statistical sampling for
the 2000 census until federal courts had an opportunity to rule on its
A closed rule (H.Res. 303) on an IRS reform bill provided for automatic
adoption of four amendments to the committee substitute made in order
as original text. The rule was adopted on November 5, 1997, with
On May 7, 1998, an intelligence authorization bill was made in order by
H.Res. 420. This self-executing rule dropped a section from the
intelligence measure that would have permitted the CIA to offer their
employees an early-out retirement program.
On February 20, 2005, the House adopted H.Res. 75, which provided that
a manager’s amendment dealing with immigration issues shall be
considered as adopted in the House and in the Committee of the Whole
and the bill (H.R. 418), as amended, shall be considered as the original
bill for purposes of amendment.
So, truth be told the undertaking that the Congressional Dems specifically Nancy Pelosi the Botox cunt from San Fran is unprecedented.
