The One and his congressional allies (e.g. *spit* Pelosi, Reid and Waxman) are hell bent on passing this 1,000-page legislative turd before they all take a well-needed break from all that hard work being a congresscritter. Seeing as how much of the law wouldnâ€™t kick in for another three years, whatâ€™s the rush?
As my constitutional law professor from Maine used to say, â€œTo ahsk the question is to ahnswer it.â€ Obviously, they know that, if the American people at large know whatâ€™s in the bill, it will never be passed. They also know that, once the American people learn what is in the bill, any congressperson who votes for it may well have to leave Washington to find a real job.
Just in case you might be interested, take a look at some of the gems that currently are in the bill.
You also should take a listen to Fred Thompson interviewing Betsy McCoy, New Yorkâ€™s former Lieutenant Governor. She talks about how the bill provides for the â€œhealthcareâ€ of those of us who are on the wrong side of fifty. Ouch!
Thanks to my buddy Brian, the Air Force Vet, for the Fred Thompson link.
