Steve Scalise: gentlewoman from north carolina for yielding. here we are talking, this is about the only opportunity we are going to have for real debate on this because speaker pelosi and her liberal lieutenants have decided they are going to try to ram this down the throats of the american people without even having an actual vote on the house floor. of course violates article one, section 7 of the constitution. there are a tremendous number of constitutional questions

Steve Scalise: what's going on. the people watching this closely and the people will not be fooled by this abomination of the process. but if that bill really was so good, why are they doing all this behind closed doors? they broke every promise they made along the way. they want you to believe don't worry. it's still going to work out the way you want it. if you like what you have, you can keep it.
