Halloween is Saturday and the House of Representatives has contributed to the fright fest by unveiling their new and improved – GAG – healthcare bill. PlastiGirl announced the bill before an invite-only group of people and no, that was not a mask, that is her real face. House Democrats blocked the public from attending the unveiling ceremony and allowed only special guests that included Hill staffers, union workers, healthcare providers and students. The bill weighed in at a terrifying 1,990 pages and 400,000 words. And the idea of reading the following passages from the bill is truly horrifying:
“(a) Outpatient Hospitals – (1) In General – Section 1833(t)(3)(C)(iv) of the Social Security Act (42 U.S.C. 1395(t)(3)(C)(iv)) is amended – (A) in the first sentence – (i) by inserting “(which is subject to the productivity adjustment described in subclause (II) of such section)” after “1886(b)(3)(B)(iii); and (ii) by inserting “(but not below 0)” after “reduced”; and (B) in the second sentence, by inserting “and which is subject, beginning with 2010 to the productivity adjustment described in section 1886(b)(3)(B)(iii)(II)”.
It is alarming to think that it could easily take a week for lawmakers to read through this bill and that most of them will not bother. And they only have a week to read it because PlastiGirl wants to vote on this freakish bill next week. Words like “taxes” and “death” are all over this bill, which is bloodcurdling to a middle class business owner like myself who knows that those taxes will fall to me eventually. We do not have enough filthy, evil rich people to pay for this monstrosity. The CBO said this bill will cost $1.055 trillion, but have some of that cost offset by fines on businesses and individuals who do not buy insurance coverage. Are people paying attention to this? This is more frightening than the movie “Paranormal Activity”. The government will mandate what you have to do in your private life and punish you for not doing it.
Put on your jackboots for Halloween everyone!
