A few weeks ago, intrepid Harry Reid was telling us he wouldn’t be “bound by any timelines” and wouldn’t rush the government health care takeover through the Senate on a White House-imposed schedule.

Neeeever mind:

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) late Tuesday laid the groundwork for the Senate’s healthcare reform debate to start next Tuesday.

Reid filed a motion to introduce the bill on Monday, Nov. 16. Anticipating a Republican objection, the bill would be pushed onto the Senate calendar.

“A motion to proceed to the bill would be in order the next legislative day,” said Reid spokesman Jim Manley.

In doing so, Reid heeded the advice of former President Bill Clinton, who visited Senate Democrats Tuesday at their weekly caucus lunch and urged them to move quickly to pass health reform…

…Reid’s action late Tuesday sets up a critical vote next week on a motion to proceed to the bill. Such a motion would require 60 votes to succeed — an important, early test of the Democratic caucus’s unity on procedural votes.

Yes, by all means, keep heeding Bill Clinton’s advice and may Obamacare/Pelosicare/Reidcare go the way of Clintoncare: Straight to the graveyard of failed ideas.

Speaking of which…the White House is still leaving the door open to abusing the budget reconciliation process to ram the government health care takeover through.

Has anyone seen the Harrycare bill yet? It’s still vapor.

Once again: Welcome to the death of deliberative democracy.
