Policy Wonk Doesn’t Understand How Bill Becomes Law

Hiway-to-Hell

Due to the arcane rules in the Senate, well, it seems that ZEGS might need to hold a re-vote on the Trickle-Down Healthcare ActHouse May Need to Vote Again on GOP Obamacare Repeal Bill

…According to several aides and other procedural experts, if Republicans send the bill to the Senate now and the CBO later concludes it doesn’t save at least $2 billion, it would doom the bill and Republicans would have to start their repeal effort all over with a new budget resolution. Congressional rules would likely prevent Republicans from fixing the bill after it’s in the Senate, the aides said.

…reluctant Republicans will once again be forced to decide whether to back it. Only this time, they would also be saddled with the CBO’s latest findings about the bill’s costs and impacts.

Ooh, they would get another chance to prove to their constituents that they don’t represent their interests? That could leave a mark!

And this is where we see that there is some fall-out from not understanding process and totally not paying attention to Calendars:

May we suggest some remedial School House Rock, ZEGS?

    If either Ossoff or Quinn is elected, I think the GOP HOR may end up just dropping the whole thing.

    Oops. Another example proving that the GOP has completely forgotten how to govern.

    Roket, et al. The GOP hasn’t had a positive legislative agenda since at least before Gingrich. I am beginning to think there was a reason that the House was always run by Democrats. . . it is not that they have forgotten how, it is more that anyone who ever knew how to govern through legislation instead of bomb-throwing is dead or primaried out (same diff, really).
