Rush: Congress will break ObamaCare into parts; attach parts to other bills for "stealth pass"

Didn't see this posted elsewhere. According to Limbaugh, Pelosi/Reid are meeting in back rooms with other Dems to stealth-pass Obamacare.

Tactic is to break-up Obamacare into several parts, then attach each part as an amendment to something completely unrelated but popular. Perfectly legal, and when the bills come to reconciliation, only 50 votes needed in Senate (Biden makes 51).

Suddenly, we have ObamaCare, complete with government seizing the healthcare industry and using it to punish those with whom they disagree. No further details heard.

Sounds pretty similar to what Glenn has been saying.

Megs,

I'm not trying to take over the thread. I just have a copy of the summary of the health scare plan here (House Version) and I wanted smarter heads than my own to take a look at it. This thing is terrifying me and privacy goes right out the damned window, but I'm wondering how many of the details I am missing. I am afraid that I eventually won't be able to keep my health insurance. I don't want the government to know that I have a flu or chronic condition. It's none of their damned business.

Anyhow, here is the summary:

Obamas hell bent on taking over the Americas health Care Industry to pay back all of those political promises he made to his supporters.

The Liberals in Congress are all pushing for the same thing .I'm not sure what will happen if they force it through by deception ?Perhaps there will be an national uprising,perhaps an full revolution but they are taking a large calculated chance that America will do nothing !
