Princess Pelosi’s Magic Tongue

1990 Pages and at 2.2 million a word the Nancy Pelosi Legacy Bill is out and what a load of crap it is too!

She claims it will not add one dime to the deficit but the largest item in the bill that will generate revenue outside an outright tax hike of unimaginable amount is the $500 Billion dollar cut to Medicare. However it is only a "proposed" cut and would likely be in another Bill. That means revenue for this bill will be mired in another bill wrought with its own political life. So, most likely that $500 Billion will be paid for by advancing this bill the money out of the treasury, or from out of that deep pit known as the Deficit.

Way to go Nancy, nothing like standing before the media and flat out lying to them, to all of us.

And here is another Gift – to the Trial Lawyers to boot!!

Section 2531, entitled "Medical Liability Alternatives," establishes an incentive program for states to adopt and implement alternatives to medical liability litigation.

Now who could be against that? And have not some of us out here been screaming for some tort reform? Well kind of, just answer me why you need an "incentive" program to save money in the first place, only a Democrat sees that as the way to do business. But let us take a look at the fine print in the measure.

….a state is not eligible for the incentive payments if that state establishes limits on attorneys' fees or imposes caps on damages.

There you go, protecting the Trial Lawyers once again and being able to say you are being inclusive with respect to the alternate party.

Oh yeah, this is how you speak out of both sides of your face at the same time.

BT: Jimmy T sends.

Every once in a while I get to thinkin' the ONLY answer to all this shi'ite is another revolution or perhaps a military coup d'etat. To say I'm fed up is an understatement of MASSIVE proportions.

Buck, I know what you mean, time to rumble down Pennslvina Avenue, flipping and burning cars as we go. Like the hippies in the olden days. You know, get their attention.
