MEMBER DIARY

Huh? Parliamentarian’s ruling misinterpreted by GOP aides and Kent Conrad?

Democrats still have more than one option on Obamacare again?  Take this with a grain of salt as this is being floated by leftist blogs and Politico.  What I find interesting is that both McConnell and Conrad interpreted this apparent ruling yesterday the same way.  What could be the point of this? 

Diversionary tactic to take the stress off of House Democratic members who are undecided or leaning to vote no.  Also, it further solidifies that Pelosi assuredly doesn’t have to votes without Stupak.  We’ve seen tricks like this before.  Keep your antenna up.  Keep the phone calls up to your congressmen to make sure this thing gets killed.
