After promising an open process, they crafted their bills behind closed doors. After promising a change from dirty politics, they gave us backroom deals like theLouisiana Purchase and the Cornhusker Kickback. And after promising to post bills online 72 hours before votes, they pulled the worst scam yet, posting last fall’s 2,309-page health care bill this weekend knowing full well that that’s not the bill that Congress will ultimately vote on. It’s just a shell bill, full of the same hidden tax increases and big government policies that have angered the American people for months.
There may not even be a vote at all: If the Democrats follow the Slaughter Strategy, the House would pass the Senate version of ObamaCare without actually voting up or down on it at all. President Obama would sign a bill into law that would not have followed the process that the framers laid down in the Constitution.
If ObamaCare passes, your taxes will go up immediately, while you won’t see any of its alleged benefits for years. That scam allowed the Democrats to claim that their bill costs under $1 trillion. The fact is, ObamaCare is only the beginning, and will cost far more than the Democrats are willing to admit.
The time for games is over: Our health care is simply too important.
