Will the Democrats "SLAUGHTER" the Constitution?

The message regarding the "Slaughter Strategy" was sent in from The Republican Party of Texas:
The Democrats will stop at nothing to pass ObamaCare.
The American people want sensible health care reform. But they know that ObamaCare is not the answer. And Texans know that the Democrats' prescription is bad medicine for Texas.
But the liberal Democrats are dead set on passing their bill anyway.
Reportedly, the Pelosi-Reid-Obama Democrats are even considering invoking the so-called Slaughter Strategy. This strategy would have the House "pass" the Senate version of ObamaCare - without ever actually voting on it.
Writing in the Wall Street Journal, retired federal judge Michael McConnell says that using the Slaughter Strategy to pass ObamaCare "cannot be squared with Article I, Section 7 of the Constitution." Passing ObamaCare via the Slaughter Strategy may be constitutionally illegitimate. Even the Washington Post calls the Slaughter Strategy "dodgy" "legislative sleight of hand," while the Cincinatti Enquirer calls the Democrats' process "arrogant" and "disgusting."
The Democrats have already played dishonest games with your health care.
They built their health care takeover bills via backroom manuevers and shady deals. The House passed its version of ObamaCare in a midnight, weekend vote last November when they thought no one was watching. The Senate passed its own version of ObamaCare on Christmas Eve 2009, again when they thought no one was watching.
And now they're planning on "Slaughtering" the Constitution.
Call your Congressman and tell them that the Slaughter Strategy must not be used to pass ObamaCare. Call wavering Democrats, listed below, and demand that they follow the Constitution. Tell them to reject the Slaughter Strategy, and reject ObamaCare. Tell them to scrap ObamaCare and start over with sensible, market-oriented reforms that will begin to bring health care costs in line.
