Jon Ward over at the Daily Caller just got a few words with House Rules Committee Chair Louise Slaughter on her so-called “Slaughter Solution” which would subvert the Constitution to pass health care. Amazing stuff:
DAILY CALLER: How realistic is it that they would do that?
SLAUGHTER: Pretty good.
DAILY CALLER: Pretty good?
SLAUGHTER: I, no, I don’t know. I’m just being a smart aleck. That decision’s not been made yet.
DAILY CALLER: Who’s going to make it?
SLAUGHTER: Well, I think the Speaker and I will probably be in on that.
DAILY CALLER: Now, can I ask you a rhetorical question? If you do this, can’t your opponents still say, ‘Well they didn’t technically vote for it but they still—’
SLAUGHTER: Your opponents can say anything.
DAILY CALLER: Right, but which argument will win?
SLAUGHTER: What we’ve got to do here is the right thing.
Just wow. We’re about as close to martial law as we’ve been in about 150 years.
