Pelosi not expected to allow any amendments

to the healthcare bill. This is NOT representative democracy, this is authoritarian rule.

But Rep. George Miller (D-Calif.), a key player in the healthcare debate, said Friday he doesn’t expect those groups will have much of a chance.

“Unless there are major problems I would expect the opportunity for amendments to be very limited, if at all,” Miller said in a telephone news conference.

Miller chairs one of the committees of jurisdiction and also the House Democratic Policy Committee. Also, he is possibly House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's closest ally.
