This is a quote from an email that I received that summarizes this video. The decision made in this video is unbelievable to me. Rules and law don't mean a thing to Congress any more.

"Beginning on page 1,000 of the measure, Section 3403 reads in part: '. it
shall not be in order in the Senate or the House of Representatives to
consider any bill, resolution, amendment or conference report that would
repeal or otherwise change this subsection.'

In other words, if President Barack Obama signs this measure into law, no
future Senate or House will be able to change a single word of Section 3403,
regardless whether future Americans or their representatives in Congress
wish otherwise!!"

Note that the subsection at issue here concerns the regulatory power of the
Independent Medicare Advisory Board (IMAB) to "reduce the per capita rate of
growth in Medicare spending."

That is precisely the kind of open-ended grant of regulatory power that
effectively establishes the IMAB as the ultimate arbiter of the cost,
quality and quantity of health care to be made available to the American
people.And Reid wants the decisions of this group of unelected federal
bureaucrats to be untouchable for all time.
