This Sunday, the U.S. House of Representatives will be voting on a budget reconciliation bill. The contents of that bill, while damaging to the economy, are secondary in importance to the rule which will precede consideration of the bill itself.
The procedural rule will “deem as passed” the Senate healthcare bill which passed that chamber in December. This is the same bill which contains the “Cornhusker Kickback,” “Gator-Aid,” and all the other shady backroom deals. It contains 19 tax hikes totaling $500 billion. It is loaded with phony and unrealistic budget gimmicks which hide the true cost of the bill from taxpayers.
Most importantly, passage of the rule will directly result in sending the Senate “Christmas Eve” healthcare bill to the President’s desk for his signature. If the rule passes, government-run healthcare becomes law.
A vote for the rule is a vote to directly, actually, and permanently enact government-run healthcare into law.
ATR WILL DOUBLE RATE A VOTE AGAINST THE RULE SINCE ITS PASSAGE WOULD RESULT IN GOVERNMENT-RUN HEALTHCARE BECOMING LAW
