Tale of two Bills

These are competing Health Care Reform Bills, the one on the Left is from the Republicans and the one on the Right is the Nancy Pelosi monstrosity.

The one on the left actually lowers costs to holders of Insurance Plans, will actually reduce the deficit over 10 years and is paid for in a straight forward method, no funding gimmicks or accounting doublespeak.

The one on the right is what you get when you want to buy votes and don't care what it costs to buy those votes.

Only the monstrosity on the right will actually get a vote, the one on the right will be put into the nearest recycling bin. A shame, waste of good trees.

BT: Jimmy T sends.

I'm thinking our congresscritters should be forced to eat the bill they vote on... literally. That might influence the complexity of bills introduced on the floor and save us all a lot of time and money.

Buck, that is a novel approach to this huge problem they have, and some of that great big bill is still in open brackets!! Meaning it there are still parts missing! That is why the CBO grade includes a "high risk" statement that no one talks about, meaning the 'quote' they gave on its cost is well, subject to change!

Too many Lawyers, we need a season on them right along with Deer.
