Has the American public been subjected to a crude political ruse this past week? Harry Reid provides some evidence by his scheduling of another Saturday Night Special (this group does everything on Friday and Saturday, apparently) to vote on socialized medicine.
Meanwhile the entire week is almost gone and the buzz has been about a terrorist captured in 2003 instead of the pending take over of 1/6 of the economy, and the cheap and tawdry deals being made to get it done. And through it all the president was on the other side of the world.
As Harry the Loser said, they will get something done by hook or by crook (he didn't quite use those words) so perhaps it's worthless to whine. McCain said it--elections matter. But it would be nice for our republic if the GOP would hold firm on their suggestion to read all 34 hours of the bill's text before it can be voted on. Or maybe three readings. For the people's sake.
