McConnell (R) - "The Final Bill We’ll Vote on Isn’t Even The One We’ve Had on The Floor"

If I understand this correctly, not only will the Democratic leadership not give our representatives enough time to read the bill; let along the promised waiting period for the American people to read it by Obama which has long ago been thrown out the window, but now the bill they are trying to read is not even the one that is being voted on. (via)

"“Americans were told the purpose of reform was to reduce the cost of health care.

“Instead, Democrat leaders produced a $2.5 trillion, 2,074-page monstrosity that vastly expands government, raises taxes, raises premiums, and wrecks Medicare.

“And they want to rush this bill through by Christmas — one of the most significant, far-reaching pieces of legislation in U.S. history. They want to rush it.

“And here’s the most outrageous part: at the end of this rush, they want us to vote on a bill that no one outside the Majority Leader’s conference room has even seen.

“That’s right. The final bill we’ll vote on isn’t even the one we’ve had on the floor. It’s the deal Democrat leaders have been trying to work out in private.

“That’s what they intend to bring to the floor and force a vote on before Christmas.

“So this entire process is essentially a charade.
