Skip to comments.Malkin: Obama and the Vampire Congress
Posted on 01/05/2010 9:31:28 PM PST by thedailyjabber
Meet the Beltway bloodsuckers. They convene in the dead of night, when most ordinary mortals have left work and let their guard down or are lying asleep in bed. Pale-faced and insatiable, the nocturnal thieves do their nefarious business in backrooms and secret chambers. Their primary victims? Taxpayers, the free market and deliberative democracy.
Democratic leaders have been promising the most ethical, transparent, open and engaged administration for years. Instead, they have delivered a bleak and creepy legislative environment that could double as a Twilight movie set.
Skulking Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid rammed the government health care takeover package through under the cover of darkness before Thanksgiving and Christmas. House Democratic leaders forbade debate on all but one amendment not authored by themselves. The Senate Finance Committee killed a GOP amendment that would have required Demcare to be available online for 72 hours before the committee voted. Reid and his Volterra-style henchmen cut last-minute cash-for-cloture deals behind closed doors.
And now House and Senate Democratic leaders are reportedly preparing to cut dissenters out of the reconciliation process by bypassing the formal conference committee.
In Hill parlance, this legislative shortcut is called ping-ponging.

The Word of God says they love the darkness because their deeds are evil.
They’re doing this because their forebears, the early twentieth century Demonrats, rammed the heretofore resisted Federal Reserve bill through Congress on the eve of the Christmas vacation when everybody was itching to leave. It worked then and its working now.
And then Nancy Pelosi calls this “transparent”. That must be demon humor.

Pelosi believes that what you call it, it becomes. “This is transparent.” How many will buy that?
"Hey, Harry. Wanna go down the fruit cellar with me, say hello to Mother?"
