White House To Use Reconciliation To Shove Obamacare Through

You'll recall that I mentioned before that if they can't get 60 votes in the Senate, Rahm Emanuel,Harry Reid,Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats are fully prepared to make ObamaCare the law of the land the same way they passed Obama's bogus 'stimulus' - by misusing budget reconciliation rules to lock Republicans out of the room while they craft whatever they want, rush it through the House and send it to the White House for Obama's signature.

White House Spokesmouth Robert Gibbs just confirmed it:

President Barack Obama is hopeful that the Senate will pass a healthcare bill with 60 votes, but White House press secretary Robert Gibbs held out the possibility that budget reconciliation rules could still be used.

He said Senate leaders and the White House would turn to those rules, which would prevent the Senate from needing to secure 60 votes for procedural steps, only if they are not making progress.

As long as “we continue to make progress, then we don't see any need to change the process,” Gibbs said.

Translation? "Hey baby, we're gonna rape you anyway no matter what,so why not avoid a beat up and co-operate?"

Leftist fascism what we want and we'll observe the formalities. If not, we'll subvert the legislative process to do whatever we want just the same.

Oh, and the Stupak amendment th eGOP stupidly voted for? On the cutting room floor,guaranteed.

This will cost the Democrats majorities in both Houses,but it is up to us to make sure it happens so this monstrous nonsense canbe repealed before it goes into effect in 2013.
