Whachu talking bout Willis?

Pelosi unveiled the House version of the bill several days ago.

www.abovetopsecret.com...

You can download it and read it here (warning 1990 pages big pdf).

What they are referring to is the final version being posted, which is still being negotiated. Is that really enough of a reason to bash her? Of coarse it is, if you are a right wing extremist.


That is EXACTLY the time you want to watch a bill because THAT is the time when all the weird stuff gets slipped in!!!

A farmer had prodded her state rep to sponsor a bill that was against NAIS - Animal ID. She watch the bill go through one house get passed go into committee and come out for a vote only to find a few words had been inserted to make the bill REQUIRE Animal ID. She had a devil of a time to get to all the reps she had lined up to support the bill to stop them from voting for it. Then she had to start the whole process over to try and get a decent bill passed.

That is why anyone who has experienced the legislative "sausage-making" will tell you the 11th hour is when you have to watch a bill very closely. That is when all the nasty bits get slipped into the bills. Do you really think anyone is going to READ the final version before they vote on it?? Don't you think it is very suspect that the final version will not be available for anyone to read? Heck they can slip in a completely new bill and no one would know as long as the first couple of pages were similar!

And do they say what type of lawyers they are? Because a medical attorney would be able to read it, but a copyrights attorney or corporate attorney may not.

See, Fox tries to pass off people as experts when they are not. Fox also has been proven over and over again to have an agenda. so why would it be in their best interest to actually tell people what is in the bill?

If it is indeed that difficult to read, not sure about you, but to me, that is a huge red flag.

It is quite a leap to believe that much complexity is for our benefit and not personal gain for the writers and their lobbyists.

Debate on the bill has been going on today, broadcast live on CSPAN, they will be voting on 2 more amendments to the bill, it is over 2000 pages already.

Comments in the debate included questions as to why loan forgiveness for veterinarians is included in the bill as well as other items that have absolutely nothing to do with health care.

Here's a good reason why the bill probably isn't going to be posted in it's finally form:

Now, want to guess who the real enemy is?

No wonder US citizens are appalled at the behaviour of our (experienced) representatives!
YOU WILL NOT BELIEVE THIS! Straight from C-Span. This is how the House will pass Obamacare!
Just watch this. This is our Democratic-Controlled house at work. It's their way all the way. (the video is very short and very maddening).

If anyone wonders about our current Congress and especially the House of Representatives this youtube will open their eyes. Watch this then cry. We are losing our nation and everything it stands for.
OUR CONGRESS AT IT'S FINEST. How long can they get away with this?
