  • The House Cloakroom: Nov. 2 – 6

    Analysis –

    After unveiling her 1,990 page health care bill late this week, Speaker Pelosi hopes to have the bill on the House floor by Thursday with work possibly going into Saturday or even into the following week to finish consideration of the legislation. A manager’s amendment is expected to be introduced on Monday with additional details. However, no one is exactly sure how this will play out or if the Speaker has the necessary votes to pass the legislation. You can bet this will dominant the discussion in Washington.

    Major Floor Action –

    • As early as Thursday the H.R. 3962, the new 1,990 page health care bill could be on the House floor. Heritage Analyst Nina Owcharenko outlines five major faults with the different health care bills be discussed by Congress here.

      Thank you for sharing Tom Feeney's Preserving freedom and federalism: what's at stake for Americans in the health care debate, October 13.

      As an anti-federalist independent, I don't believe Tom goes far enough in removing the federal government's unnecessary and improper intrusion into individual states' business and social matters. But he does offer a good starting point for returning to the constitution's original intent and ingenious design of limited government.

      Pelosi's "1,990 page health care bill" is a misguided constitutional transgression and grandiose mistake that needs to be scrapped in its entirety.
