I still do not understand why Bernie Sanders, A SOCIALIST, had to be paid to support this bill.

This is so sickening. These people play with others money like it’s a game. Inmates running the asylum.

I have to bookmark this post for careful reading. I must admit I have been so absorbed in the global warming issues issue I have not put enough careful examination into key issues as is spelled out here on things just as close to home and the wallet, and future state of the Republic.

For those that do not have time to read the closing statements by the Hot Air author:

"It seems to me that if ObamaCare really reformed the process, we wouldn’t need all of these exceptions to its rules. After all, it’s supposed to “bend the cost curve downward” for everyone. If it does that, then why does Hawaii need a DSH extension? Why does Connecticut need exemptions for its hospitals and a $100 million grant, if we’re leveling the playing field?

This list shows why Congress wants to pass this overhaul. They want the ability to demand these favors not just now, but forever. When government controls the system, then the politicians control the spoils. This list is just the appetizers. They’ll be chowing down on pork banquets for decades if this passes into law, and doing it just as dishonestly as this process has been handled all along."

Bold face added by me.
