Key Vote "No" on Slaughter Rule/Senate Bill; Key Vote "No" on Reconciliation Bill

Dear Representative:                                            As the House majority decides how it will proceed with health care legislation against bi-partisan opposition, I thought you might find these two quotes from the early days of our nation enlightening:“If ever the free institutions of America are destroyed, that event may be attributed to the omnipotence of the majority.”

Slaughter Rule Has Become a Constitutional Question Mark...

The recently proposed “Slaughter Rule” specifies that the House can pass a Senate bill as well as a bill amending it, with one vote. The Senate then votes only on the amendatory bill relayed from the House. After this process, the bill is declared as passed. However, this means that the House and the Senate wouldn’t have passed the same bill, which as critics are beginning to point out, is a legislative requirement, as stipulated in the Constitution.
