I swear the planet I grew up on was different than this one. How else to explain the Mad Hatter logic of Nancy Pelosi giggling "No money changed hands!" as she presided over the most corrupt, bribery-ridden legislative process since Teapot Dome. I next expect to see her widen her already bulging eyes at a press conference and say "but it was the very BEST butter!" to refute charges that nobody, not even the Congressional Janitor, has read the entire Healthcare Bill. They've discovered a few missing things already (oops, pre-existing conditions for children not covered
), and some interesting bits that boggle my mind (what, precisely, is this reserve corps mentioned in section 430?). If they keep looking they will probably find Jimmy Hoffa stuffed in the Ark of the Covenant.
Other items that should be hashish fumes, but are unfortunately reality ...
-Obama dares Republicans to repeal Obamacare
. How cute. Like we need his permission.
-As a general rule, if Castro is saying you did something right
, you screwed up big time.
-Democrats would rather vote for Viagra for sex offenders
than stop the passage of the healthcare debacle.
-Caterpillar and John Deere
lose total of $250 million for coverage of prescriptions for retirees due to tax changes in Obamacare bill, throwing the retirees back on ... Medicare part D. Total tax savings to the country, NONE. It will cost more
money. Gee, thanks Congress! Plus all those jobs those companies won't hire for, etc. making the economy even more zombie-like.
