The Kangaroo Congress of 2010: Is Voting For the “Slaughter Solution” An Even Worse Stain Than Voting For The Cornhusker Kickback?

Tuesday, March 16, 2010  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

House Democratic leadership seems to have lost its collective mind with the embrace of the so-called “Slaughter Solution” that will “deem passed” the Senate bill without a straight vote.

This outrageous sleight-of-hand suspend the Constitution’s clear requirements. Every House member who votes “yes” on this rule not only votes for the Senate bill with all of its special interest provisions, they also vote to push the Constitution aside because the Speaker and the SEIU threatened them.

Every senator who goes along with the charade should it pass will also be part of the Kangaroo Congress of 2010. The class of 2012 will be defending their actions from this month 30 months from now, and those on the ballot in the fall can expect every ad to remind votersof this assault on the clear language of the Constitution.
