[UPDATE AT BOTTOM]
Bend over Michigan! We are about to receive the largest rectal insertion of government, and it is happening faster than most of us can keep up.
First, we have the Cap & Trade version that the Wicked Witch of the West Nancy Pelosi has promised to see through to passage. It WILL destroy what is left of the manufacturing sector in Michigan. Between energy cost increases, and Michigan’s recent punishment of manufacturers by our own leadership, consider it all over.
The only projected and “protected” industry is for the automakers signing on to the federal help “Trojan horse!” This as the result of Ring-A-Ding Dingle bargains with Waxman and Pelosi, who could give a rats ass for the rest of industry as long as he has the unequivocal support of labor come election time. And as we hear, our famous “moderate” Vern Ehlers might well sign on to this travesty as well.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s schedule yesterday underscored just how much she is working to try and pass the bill. Pelosi had individual meetings with Democratic freshmen and sophomores, as well as five members of the Ohio Democratic delegation, and seven Republicans who are considered potential supporters (Mike Castle of Delaware, Vernon Ehlers of Michigan, Mark Kirk of Illinois, Leonard Lance and Frank LoBiondo of New Jersey, Thomas Petri of Wisconsin and Dave Reichert of Washington).
THEN there are the Health care Boondoggles!
Folks we are about to see health care in the form of a prostate exam from hell! When the PROJECTED DEBT is already growing under the obama administration from 10 to 14 Trillion, that does not yet include the 1.6 Trillion dollar price tag of health care as reported by the CBO.
But never fear! to add to the ribbon at the one end, we cut it from the other!
Congress wants to tax EXISTING plans? This earns a major WTF in my book. Though Obama NOW says he disagrees with that stance it was reported earlier it was his idea. No matter though because like anything else that is done by this congress and this administration, there is little regard to consequence other than making sure the “special relationships” and “power sharing agreements ” with supporters are maintained.
In fact.. who the hell is funding this Grand Rectobamatomy??
Start Lighting up the phone banks of our SENATORS now! They are leftists as well, but still must pay attention if we make enough noise. It may be too late to get through to your rep in time to make the difference, but we still encourage you to try.
