Obama May Use Legislative Ploy to Jam Through Health, Tax Bills

President Barack Obama may try to push through Congress a health-care overhaul, energy proposals and tax increases by using a partisan tactic that would thwart Republican efforts to block the measures.

The administration and congressional Democrats are debating whether to use a parliamentary procedure called reconciliation to advance some of the biggest items on the president's agenda.

The move would allow Democrats to approve plans to raise taxes by $1 trillion, create a cap-and-trade system to rein in greenhouse-gas emissions, and overhaul health care
without a single Republican vote.

The press is saying Republicans to better wet your appetite for vengeance, but they do mean anybody with an opposing opinion, including you if who have "creative criticism" for any federal program - and I really do mean YOU. Your input is prohibited.

Welcome to CHANGE.
