If the US House "deems" the Senate bill passed by having members vote on another bill (the reconciliation one), can we citizens "deem" our taxes paid by paying our credit card bills? According to the online dictionary, deem means to regard or consider in a specified way. Examples: the event was deemed a great success or the strike was deemed to be illegal. If the political class can deem, why can't the taxpaying class deem?

BTW, the House Whip (the one who keeps tallies on who is for/against/undecided on bills) just said the the vote may not be held until Easter.

Hmmmm. Those nationwide protests must finally be making an imprint. Keep praying.
