GOP Responds to "Slaughter Solution"

by jordan forbes / /

This morning, House Republican leaders introduced a resolution to bring the Senate health care bill to the floor for an up or down vote. If passed, this measure would prohibit Speaker Pelosi from implementing the “Slaughter Solution,” a deceptive procedural trick to “deem” Senate health care legislation passed without a roll call vote in the House. For those of you who need a refresher, the Senate bill is more than $1 trillion of unbridled spending, tax hikes, and a more powerful, less accountable government. Recent studies show it will NOT rein in health care costs, nor will it spare taxpayers. The proposals under consideration will inevitably break Obama’s pledge and place an even heavier tax burden on those making less than $250,000 a year. The American people have come out overwhelmingly opposed to this health care legislation and the least they deserve is an up or down vote by the leaders who serve them. Call your representative NOW and tell them you demand representation and transparency in the form of a health care VOTE, not tactic. It is one of the most important issues we will ever face – let your voice be heard!
