Dick Morris: Pelosi and Reid Plot Secret Plan for Obamacare

Dick Morris: Pelosi and Reid Plot Secret Plan for Obamacare

Highly informed sources on Capitol Hill have revealed to me details of the Democratic plan to sneak Obamacare through Congress, despite collapsing public approval for healthcare "reform" and disintegrating congressional support in the wake of Republican Scott Brown's victory in Massachusetts.

President Obama, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid all have agreed to the basic framework of the plan.

Their plan is clever but can be stopped if opponents of radical healthcare reform act quickly and focus on a core group of 23 Democratic Congressman. If just a few of these 23 Democrats are "flipped" and decide to oppose the bill, the whole Obama-Pelosi-Reid stratagem falls apart.

Here's what I learned top Democrats are planning to implement.

Senate Democrats will go to the House with a two-part deal.

First, the House will pass the Senate's Obamacare bill that passed the Senate in December. The House leadership will vote on the Senate bill, and Pelosi will allow no amendments or modifications to the Senate bill.

How will Pelosi's deal fly with rambunctious liberal members of her majority who don't like the Senate bill, especially its failure to include a public option, put heavy fines on those who don't get insurance, and offering no income tax surcharge on the "rich"?

That's where the second part of the Pelosi-deal comes in.

Behind closed doors, Reid and Pelosi have agreed in principle that changes to the Senate bill will be made to satisfy liberal House members — but only after the Senate bill is passed and signed into law by Obama.

This deal will be secured by a pledge from Reid and the Senate's Democratic caucus that they will make "fixes" to the Senate bill after it becomes law with Obama's John Hancock.


Wild Thing's comment........

This sounds like a coup, organized by the House Speaker an Majority leader, to subvert and defeat our Republic.

Socialists have proven throughout history that the cause of socialism outweigh the cause of freedom and democracy. Reid and Pelosi play by this rule as well. Any dems that go along with this scheme are just as bad.

They are really itching for a public uprising if they go this route.

Obama told an audience in Elyria, Ohio that he would still try to convince the American public to accept Obamacare.
He told the audience that "We're going to keep working to get this done with Democrats." He behaves as if the election of Republican Senator-elect Scott Brown had never taken place.

It is about taking our freedoms away with massive government control over our lives.

....Thank you Mark for sending this to me.

Did we really think they care about the law and the constitutionality of this bill? These people are dangerous and probably psychotic. They need to be drummed out, locked into a mental institution and have their brains examined. I think you'll find their brains work much the way any dictator's brain works. They're wired in backwards!

Obama believes that he can get this done with democrats only, this may be a hard sell, since the election.

But what they are suggesting to do is an attempt to corrupt the whole system. These people are Progressives, the masses are asses and will be pushed aside until they get their agenda rammed through. The closer we get to the election, though, the closer this Health Care disaster will come to being on life support. The dems will want to issue a DNR order, Do not resuscitate because the dems will not want to touch this within 6 months of the election. Then we can change the thing and bury that horrible idea.

Thats why the hurry to get something anything done they can always change it later. Now it will be critical to put pressure on these nitwits to KILL the Bill.

We saw and knew what we would get if this POS was elected. Unfortunately to many others did not, or refused to believe what he`was.

I always listen closely to what Dick Morris says. He was in tight with the Clinton's from back when Bill was Governor or Arkansas. If anybody knows the dark dealings of Democrats, it's him.

A sneaky act like this is certainly possible with Reid,Pelosi and Obugger pulling the strings. I doubt this will work, but then to be forewarned in good.

These people are so corrupt, it goes beyond anything I have ever seen in politics.

I think Pelosi and Reid will look great when they're hanging by their necks side by side.
