Pelosi-care Facts

As per Politico:
Length: 1,990 pages
Number of words: Approx 400,000
Cost per word: $2,200,000.

In the unfortunate case you are under the assumption that this bill is to benefit the world, try this little number from the Washington Times on for size:
"House Democrats blocked the public from attending the unveiling ceremony of their health-care bill Thursday morning, allowing only pre-approved visitors whose names appeared on lists to enter the event at the West side of the Capitol....
The West side of the Capitol — the area where President Barack Obama was inaugurated — is traditionally open to the public. But the entrances were blocked off Thursday morning by metal fences, with Capitol police officers standing next to staff members holding clipboards with lists of approved attendees."

This is no longer politics, this is no longer another step towards liberalism. This is another stride on the road to serfdom.

I can remember when George H.W. Bush got so mad at the National Rifle Association for describing government agents as "jackbooted thugs."

Give them time.

Looks like a Republican sweep tonight in NY, Virginia AND New Jersey. Woo hoo! The New Jersey one is huge.
