Dems May Use Obscure Rule To Pass Reform

Posted:

Nancy Pelosi says the House could pass a Senate version of the health-care bill -- without members even voting on it.

They'd vote on more popular fixes and under house rule, passage would signify lawmakers deem the health care bill to be passed.

Republicans are outraged at the possible tactic.

Casie Hunt from Politico.com and Fox 29’s Bruce Gordon explain how this self-executing rule could change politics in Washington.
