Oh, Jeez...

The Democrats are playing dangerous games again.  This time they're trying to make Senate rules changes inside a bill – something that has never been tried before, to my knowledge.  Normally a Senate rules change requires a 2/3 vote, which of course the health care reform bill will never get.

There are several such rules changes embedded.  The most egregious one is on page 1020 of the bill:
It shall not be in order in the Senate or the House of Representatives to consider any bill, resolution, amendment, or conference report that would repeal or otherwise change this subsection.
They want to prohibit future Congresses from modifying or repealing this bill.

Of course, future Congresses can defund the bill, effectively repealing it.

What a bunch of clowns!  Dangerous clowns, though...
