Get Ready! Healthcare by reconciliation...

From the Washington Examiner:

"House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's senior health care advisor has told Congress Daily that congressional Democratic leaders have settled on a strategy they believe will allow them to make changes in both Senate and House Obamacare bills, then send a single, revised version to President Obama for signature."

And Mark Tapscott of The Examnier explains:

"The comments from Primus raise an obvious question: Since it is inconceivable that Democratic congressional leaders are moving in this direction without the knowledge of the White House, why call a health care summit and challenge congressional Republicans to come with their best ideas when the plan is already in place to use legislative trickery to pass Obamacare?
The most logical answer would seem to be that the summit is part and parcel of a White House/congressional Democratic strategy to distract attention from what is about to happen on the Hill. It's the classic magician's trick of distracting you with the left hand while the right hand does the "trick.""

Like we've never seen that trick before. I just hope the GOP is smart enough to see it!
