I posted this clip in another thread in rebuttal to a poster who had suggested the Democrats had IGNORED all Republican Amendments. I feel it is thread-worthy.

Bear in mind, this was during the lead up to the vote, not the final main vote itself. Regardless, it illustrates why the Republicans are rightfully called "The Party of No."

C-SPAN is a worthy source so take 3 minutes to see what a political speed bump looks like.




Republican Sen. Mike Enzi refuses to allow approval of 64 Republican amendments in an attempt to obstruct the process, HELP Committee Health Care Bill



This is a revealing moment from Monday's markup of the health care bill in the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) Committee that illustrates the level of procedural obstruction Senate Republicans are willing to rise to in order to impede its progress and in the hopes of killing its momentum.

They refused to vote on their very own amendments which were ACCEPTED by the Deomcrats.
Boggles the mind.

This was never about health care for most of the Republicans, it was about turning the public against President Obama so that they can take back the presidency in 2012. It's exactly like what was done to Bill Clinton, it was ever about his affairs or lying, it was to win. That is all that matters to the majority of these guys.
