In yet another unethical attempt to pass the unpopular Obamacare, the House will try a rule never before used to ‘pass’ a bill without a vote

The procedure is called the ‘Slaughter’ solution after Rep. Louise Slaughter who came up with it, but really it is a slaughter of the constitution.

Washington Examiner Reports:

Members of the U.S. House of Representatives have never before been asked to pass legislation by “deeming” it approved under a House rule instead of following the process required by the U.S. Constitution in which they actually vote on the proposal itself, according to a senior aide to House Republicans.

The procedure – dubbed by critics as the “Slaughter Solution” – is the brain-child of House Rules Committee Chairman Rep. Louise Slaughter, D-NY, who, at the request of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-CA, is trying to fashion a rule that would allow the House to move toward passage of a health care reform bill without a recorded vote on the Senate version.
