I got yer majority vote right here!

So, it appears that Barack Obama and his flunkies in Congress are set to pull the trigger on the nuclear option (they call it "reconciliation") in an effort to pass their atrocious atrocity of a health care control bill into law.

Radio host Hugh Hewitt has endorsed a wonderful idea as to how to stop this process in its tracks. Obama, Pelosi, and Reid want to bypass a filibuster and get a simple majority vote to pass this thing? Then let's give them what they want: A flood of amendments to the bill from the Republicans. Each amendment would require an up-or-down roll call vote.

Hewitt is directing people to the website of the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) where they can draft and submit their own amendment that could be submitted by a congressmember on the floor. As long as the Republicans don't lose their nerve here (and Lord knows they are prone to do so), they could keep the Dems tied up with literally thousands of amendments to the original bill.

At this point, something must be done to stop this government takeover of our health care system from happening. Once it gets passed, good luck ever getting rid of it.

Good Day to You, Sir

I did a post showing what the Dems in charged used to think of the so-called nuclear option:
