He just shushed the House!

Racht: cameroncrazy1984:
Uh, what?

This is the "Senate bill" they're voting on. But all revenue bills have to originate in the House. So what the Senate did is to take a random irrelevant revenue bill the House passed (amending the first-time homebuyers' tax credit for the armed forces), strip out all its text and replace it with the entire health care bill.


No, genius, they have been voting on OTHER bills that have been previously debated.

Now we've gone to shushing. Our government at work, folks!
 
2010-03-21 02:18:20 PM
I'm tired of the "mother" of all things. Why do mothers get such a bad rap?


HAHAHAHAHAHAA!

"SHHHHHHHHHH"

Fjornir: Shhhhh!

Mr. Speaker, point of order... we have now passed 2:00 Eastern Daylight Time, which I remind the chair is the designated time for the House Nap.

Without objection, so ordered. Sergeant-at-arms, bring the juice boxes.

Can I get a "STFU Paul Ryan" Mandate?

DamnYankees: So can someone tell me what this reform will be called? Like, if someone has health care under this new system (if it passes), what will they say? We already have Medicare and Medicaid. Is this Medisocialism?

Mediclaid?

We don't have to take a drink whenever a chart is presented, do we?
 
2010-03-21 02:22:28 PM
So what odds do you guys give this of passing? This has been going on waaaaay too long. Hopefully it will pass and kill the tea party as a bonus.
/This has been pretty civil so far. Try harder everyone.
