The Slaughter Solution is now dead.
See:House Opts Against 'Deeming' Health Care Bill Passed
House Democrats on Saturday decided against using a controversial tactic to pass the Senate's version of the health care bill, a senior House source confirmed to Fox News.
The decision capped an ongoing discussion on whether to use a so-called "deem and pass" strategy that would allow House members to approve the Senate version of health care bill without an actual vote before casting votes on a second "fix-it" resolution, known as reconciliation.
This is a big win for Republicans.
Now the Democrats will have to put their names on the Yea's and Nay's of their plans to ration health-care. Now we can hold them accountable for this monstrosity without them being able to pretend that they did not vote for the damnable thing.
