"This Is Politics at its Very Worst."

Last Saturday night Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) forced through a vote on her 2,032 page health care bill only a few days after releasing it to the public. Now Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) is poised for another Saturday night cram down, forcing a Senate cloture vote mere days before his 2,074 page bill was given to Senators. Yet again, Congress will be forced to vote on a bill that none of them have actually read. More importantly, as we pour through the details, it becomes obvious that none of them even believe the plan will do what the bill says...

Conn Carroll's brief but potent analysis continues over at The Foundry, showing how this proposed legislation will kill jobs, hurt small business, hurt families, hurt the individual states, finance abortion, and hide the real costs (which are beyond imagination).

This is politics at its very worst, not only in the horrid consequences this legislation would produce but also in the downright wicked ways in which the Democrats are running roughshod over the Constitution, democracy and common sense.

Call your Senators.
