Instead, through a tricky little parliamentary maneuver called deem and pass, the House will simply deem the Senate legislation to have passed, without voting to pass it. This sophomoric dodge has reportedly been used before
Wow, thanks for the heads-up. I hadn't heard that it was back on the table..

(Never attribute to malice what can be adequately explained by stupidity.)
Is it back on the table? Everything I heard yesterday (Sat) said that it was off?
ANyone have a source (aside from this article which may be stale) saying that it ("deem and pass") is going to be used?
