Today is the day that Congress will make a VERY important vote. Not only will they be voting on 1/6 of our economy and the future of our health care but also the significance and relevance of our Constitution. Are you excited? Waiting with bated breath? Are you near tears? From sorrow or humor? What are your hopes and fears? What do you think of their use of the slaughter solutions? Do you think deem and pass is right? Ethical?

I find nothing exciting about someone else telling me how to live my life. I find nothing fun about this whole process. You got to love how people think they have the moral authority to control my life just because they won an election. It is not hope nor fear, but anger. I could care less about the Slaughter solution, I only care about the GewCew23 solution. So no I find nothing ethical about it.

You find nothing exciting about "someone telling me how to live my life"? Wouldn't the seatbelt law, auto insurance requirement and other similar laws fall into that catagory? Unfortunately the healthcare system is broken and needs fixed.

But, just to make a point, you are not REQUIRED to drive a car.

Slaughter is the queen of Village Idiots. She's beyond stupid. They put her in the position they did not because of any smarts she has, but to be the scapegoat and she's too stupid to realize it.

I wouldn't say I'm excited; I'd say I'm anxious. My hope is that this legislation will go down in defeat; my fear is that too many Dems have been bought off, including my own. I am waiting with bated breath; in fact, I'm afraid to turn on the TV for fear of bad news. I'm not near tears, yet...but when I get angry, and I'm angry, I do tend to shed tears. The use of the Slaughter solution is a slaughter of the Constitution and Bill of Rights. I think the deem and pass is a slaughter of the rules and is totally unethical. I didn't like it when it was used before and I don't like it now. I think that answers the questions :}
