GOP to use amendments as tactic
Again what is Not talked about is the Positive ID Chip that goes along with this heathcare plan.
Be sure to read through all it. Know what it is, and show others as well.
Even though Democratic leaders on Sunday conceded they didn't yet have the votes to pass President Obama's overhaul out of the House, Senate Republicans are threatening to put up hundreds of amendments — one of the few weapons in their limited arsenal — to force Democrats to take difficult votes on politically sensitive subjects.
Amendments don't have to be relevant to the subject matter under the controversial tactic Democrats are using to avoid a filibuster, so Republicans can force Democrats to take tough votes on any number of matters, such as closing the detention facility for terrorism suspects at the U.S. Naval Base Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
Democratic leaders said they can't risk passing any amendments to the bill, even if they agree with them. If they were to pass, it would require more time — and possibly more votes — to marry the Senate legislation with what passed in the House.
