Because no one will pay attention due to the holidays?

It's already done. I think it happened this morning at 7 am, didn't it? They still have to find a way to mesh the two bills together and have enough votes to pass this monstrosity. I am holding out hope that it will never come to fruition. This is not reform in the least. They touted this as such an emergency, yet they don't plan on giving anyone benefits from it until 2014. Yeah, real emergency.

Politicians know they can prosper in their lobbyist filled spending agendas when they think their voters are pre occupied. What better diversion than Christmas... Those who agree with these cheap tactics are just as pathetic as the politicians. Is this how you want America to be Changed? Accountable? nope. Responsible? nope..

Oh, and I don't know how sneaky it was, but it was a desperate move on behalf of Reid. He knows that the Democrat senators will go back home for the holidays and hear a load of what their constituency thinks about this sham of a bill. He didn't want to risk the fear setting in, preventing passage. JMO.

I don't think its sneaky - we all obviously know they are trying to do it. I do think it is incredibly STUPID though. They say it's "their gift to America" please......ridiculous
