Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-FL)

“There ain’t no rules here, we’re trying to accomplish something…When the deal goes down, all this talk about rules… we make ’em up as we go along.”

– Rep. Alcee Hastings (D- FL)

The above statement was made today in a meeting of the Rules Committee of the House of Representatives.

The Rules Committee is charged with setting the rules for debate on the House floor. These are the people who determine how debate will go down and for how long. They also decide the voting procedures. They are meeting today to set the rules for debate preceding tomorrows Health Care vote.

Representative Hastings words reveal the attitude of the Democrats concerning this legislation. They are willing to shred the constitution in their efforts to get this disaster of a bill passed.

UPDATE: Yep, He said it!

They are so desperate to pass such crap legislation. Makes me wonder why they don’t care about November.
