Reid Is Stupid, Cunning, Deceitful, or Incompetent

You be the judge. We told you about the provision which prohibits the repeal of certain sections of the healthcare bill.

The impudent tyranny of Harry Reid
Examiner Editorial
December 23, 2009

The final Orwellian touch in this subversion of democratic procedure is found in the ruling of the Reid-controlled Senate parliamentarian that the anti-repeal provision is not a change in Senate rules, but rather of Senate "procedures." Why is that significant? Because for 200 years, changes in the Senate's standing rules have required approval by two-thirds of those voting, or 67 votes rather than the 60 Reid's amendment received. Reid has flouted two centuries of standing Senate rules to pass a measure in the dead of night that no senator has read, and part of which can never be changed. If this is not tyranny, then what is?
