Forget About Slaughter, Let’s Go for the Chavez Rule

Why all this haggling? Why all the hubbub about the Slaughter rule?

If the Slaughter rule allows Madame Chairman to  “deem” the House to have passed Obamacare, why even bother? Why not just have President Obama “deem” that  both the Senate and the House have voted on, and passed, Obamacare? Like they do in Venezuela.

We could  call it the “Chavez Rule.” It would make all this messy business of governing much, much easier.

Chavez demands regulation of Internet

Venezuelan TV stations taken off the air

Venezuela takes over refineries

Venezuela takes over oil companies

Well, I think you get the idea. All aboard!
