The Slaughter Solution is a plan by Rep. Louise Slaughter (D-NY), the Democratic chair of the powerful House Rules Committee and a key ally of Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), to get the health care legislation through the House without an actual vote on the Senate-passed health care bill. You see, Democratic leaders currently lack the votes needed to pass the Senate health care bill through the House. Under Slaughter’s scheme, Democratic leaders will overcome this problem by simply “deeming” the Senate bill passed in the House – without an actual vote by members of the House.
Pelosi is so desperate to pass an unpopular bill she is looking for any way this can be deemed “passed” whether the American people want it or not.
“Passing” this bill through parliamentary manipulation will cause a populist uproar even worse than passing it on a straight up or down vote. The Democrats are determined to destroy their party.
