I wrote a few days ago about the anti-constitutional “rule” Representative Louise Slaughter plans to use to enable passage of the widely unpopular Senate health-care reform plan without actually having to vote on it.

Party to ram down the throats of the American people a bill that a passionate majority doesn’t want.
Wisconsin Representative Paul Ryan (R), who had already impressed observers with his performance at the so-called “health care summit,” roundly denounces the entire farcical process in his opening statement this week as the House Budget Committee considers the Senate bill:
This guy is good. He’s sharp, well-spoken, and has a command of both the facts and the political philosophy at stake here. Whatever the outcome, Mr. Ryan is one to keep an eye on.
