Under the Slaughter rule, the Senate health care bill itself would be “deemed” to have passed the House if the full House of Representatives subsequently passes the budget reconciliation bill. The "reconciliation bill" is full of amendments to the Senate bill. Tell me again how one can amend a bill that has not become law? How does one enact a law that is only being considered to have passed? Their OPINION that the Senate bill has passed is not worth spit.

They can BELIEVE all they want that the Senate bill is passed. But, then again, they also DEEM that the Senate Bill will improve heath care.

They are all delusional and should be removed for health reasons. OUR health.
