White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs told reporters yesterday that the Democrats will use the “Slaughter Rule” to pass other pieces of legislation, including immigration.
From the White House Press Briefing yesterday, via BreitbartTV:

QUESTION: Thank you, Robert. Mark Levin with the Landmark Legal Foundation has prepared a suit against the President that if he signs the health care bill passed by the House without a recorded yea or nay vote required by Article I, Section 7 — my question on that is, would the President rule out signing future bills such as immigration reform or finance reform you mentioned earlier that are not subject to a yea or nay vote in both chambers?

MR. GIBBS: Again, this is — I think we’ve discussed on a number of occasions, certainly the last time we met inside, that this was — this is the type of thing that — the type of rule that you’ve seen pass on any number of instances. So I understand that there are those that want to discuss this as being a unique thing. It is not. I stated earlier that when this bill passes the House the President will be happy to sign it.
