How
 
Obamacare
 
Became
 
the
 
“Law
 
of 
 
the
 
Land”
 
So
 
how
 
did
 
Obamacare
 
become
 
a
 
law?
 
It’s
 
actually
 
pretty
 
interesting.
 
If 
 
you
 
recall,
 
the
 
Democrats
 
in
 
the
 
House
 
weren’t
 
able
 
to
 
pass
 
their
 
version
 
of 
 
a
 
Healthcare
 
law.
 
Because
 
all
 
revenue
 
bills
 
have
 
to
 
originate
 
in
 
the
 
House
 
of 
 
Representatives,
 
the
 
Senate
 
found
 
a
 
bill
 
that
 
met
 
those
 
qualifications:
 
HR3590,
 
a
 
military
 
housing
 
bill
.
 
They
 
took
 
out
 
essentially
 
all
 
of 
 
the
 
wording
 
of 
 
it,
 
and
 
turned
 
it
 
into
 
the
 
Patient
 
Protection
 
and
 
Affordable
 
Care
 
Act,
 
Obamacare.
 
It
 
gets
 
better.
 
The
 
Senate
 
at
 
that
 
time
 
had
 
60
 
Democrats,
 
 just
 
enough
 
to
 
pass
 
Obamacare.
 
After
 
the
 
bill
 
passed
 
the
 
Senate
 
tho,
 
Democrat
 
Senator
 
Ted
 
Kennedy
 
died.
 
In
 
his
 
place,
 
Massachusetts
 
elected
 
Republican
 
Scott
 
Brown.
 
That
 
meant
 
that,
 
if 
 
the
 
House
 
made
 
any
 
changes
 
to
 
the
 
bill,
 
the
 
Senate
 
wouldn’t
 
have
 
the
 
necessary
 
number
 
of 
 
votes
 
to
 
pass
 
the
 
corrected
 
bill,
 
since
 
they
 
knew
 
no
 
Republicans
 
would
 
vote
 
for
 
Obamacare.
 
So
 
they
 
made
 
a
 
deal
 
with
 
the
 
Democrat
controlled
 
House
 
of 
 
Representatives:
 
the
 
House
 
would
 
pass
 
the
 
Senate
 
bill
 
without
 
any
 
changes,
 
IF
 
the
 
Senate
 
agreed
 
to
 
pass
 
a
 
separate
 
bill
 
by
 
the
 
House
 
that
 
made
 
changes
 
to
 
the
 
Senate
 
version
 
of 
 
Obamacare.
 
This
 
second
 
bill
 
was
 
called
 
the
 
Reconciliation
 
Act
 
of 
 
2010
.
 
It
 
made
 
a
 
bunch
 
of 
 
detail
 
changes,
 
and
 
added
 
some
 
things.
 
So
 
the
 
House
 
passed
 
PPACA,
 
the
 
Senate
 
bill,
 
as
 
well
 
as
 
their
 
Reconciliation
 
Act.
 
So
 
now
 
PPACA
 
was
 
ready
 
for
 
the
 
President
 
to
 
sign,
 
but
 
the
 
Senate
 
still
 
needed
 
to
 
pass
 
the
 
Reconciliation
 
Act
 
from
 
the
 
House.
 
Confused
 
yet?
 
Now,
 
remember
 
that
 
the
 
Senate
 
only
 
had
 
59
 
votes
 
to
 
pass
 
the
 
Reconciliation
 
Act
 
since
 
Republican
 
Scott
 
Brown
 
replaced
 
Democrat
 
Ted
 
Kennedy.
 
In
 
order
 
to
 
pass
 
the
 
Reconciliation
 
Act,
 
therefore,
 
the
 
Democrats
 
in
 
the
 
Senate
 
decided
 
to
 
change
 
the
 
rules.
 
They
 
declared
 
that
 
they
 
could
 
use
 
the
 
“Reconciliation
 
Rule”—this
 
is
 
a
 
different
 
“reconciliation”
 
than
 
the
 
House
 
bill
 
now.
 
This
 
rule
 
was
 
only
 
used
 
for
 
budget
 
item
 
approval,
 
so
 
that
 
budget
 
items
 
could
 
be
 
passed
 
with
 
only
 
51
 
votes
 
in
 
the
 
Senate,
 
not
 
the
 
usual
 
60.
 
This
 
rule
 
was
 
never
 
intended
 
to
 
be
 
used
 
for
 
legislation
 
of 
 
the
 
magnitude
 
of 
 
Obamacare.
 
Too
 
bad…
 
they
 
used
 
it
 
anyway
.
 
So
 
then
 
both
 
of 
 
the
 
“Acts”
 
passed
 
both
 
houses
 
of 
 
Congress
 
and
 
were
 
then
 
signed
 
by
 
President
 
Obama.
 
All
 
done
 
by
 
Democrats
 
without
 
a
 
single
 
Republican
 
vote
 
in
 
favor
 
of 
 
it.
 
To
 
quote
 
Democrat
 
Rep.
 
Alcee
 
Hastings
 
of 
 
the
 
House
 
Rules
 
Committee
 
during
 
the
 
bill
 
process:
 
“We’re
 
making
 
up
 
the
 
rules
 
as
 
we
 
go
 
along”.
 
They
 
certainly
 
couldn’t
 
have
 
made
 
this
 
law
 
without
 
it.
 
How
 
do
 
you
 
feel
 
about
 
that?
