Wow. I mean, I totally understand that the stack of papers is literally a pile of crap. But I never expected Obama to acknowledge it as merely a prop. :)

I’m surprised the Dems didn’t go greenie and lecture about how many trees were killed to print the pile of crap.

That was funny about Obama calling his legislation a “prop”. He inadvertently told the truth.

Obama will have the last laugh. They have the votes to pass the reconciliation on Monday. Once its law, you can’t get rid of it.

The Republicans brought the legislation. The Democrats brought anecdotes of people wearing dead sister’s dentures, who may or may not exist.

Legislation as a prop? Anyone remember this "prop" during the infamous 'You Lie' speech to Congress last September? The GOP was accused of having no ideas or healthcare proposals of their own. 0bama PWNED ... again.

Surprisingly, McCain was on his toes also.
His “We needed 60 votes” was great.
I still wouldn’t vote for him though.

The only “prop” Cantor had with him was Obama’s 22 page “healthcare program”.

TRI CARE FOR LIFE This from a google search:

This option would help reduce the costs of TFL, as well as costs for Medicare, by introducing minimum out-of pocket requirements for beneficiaries. Under this option, TFL would not cover any of the first $525 of an enrollee’s cost-sharing liabilities for calendar year 2011 and would limit coverage to 50 percent of the next $4,725 in Medicare cost sharing that the beneficiary incurred. (Because all further cost sharing would be covered by TFL, enrollees could not pay more than $2,888 in cost sharing in that year.) http://www.cbo.gov/ftpdocs/99xx/doc9925/12-18-HealthOptions.pdf

By Rick Maze - Staff writer, Oct 7, 2009

Tricare fee increases imposed last week by the Defense Department will be repealed by a provision of the compromise 2010 defense authorization bill unveiled Wednesday by House and Senate negotiators.
Snip The fee increases were announced on Sept. 30 and took effect on Oct. 1, but the defense bill, HR 2647, includes a provision barring any fee increases until the start of fiscal 2011.

Snip

Retired Army Maj. Gen. Bill Matz, president of the National Association for Uniformed Services, said the announcement of fee increases was shocking considering that the Obama administration promised earlier this year to hold off on any new fee Tricare fee increases until fiscal 2011.

“President Obama and DoD assured NAUS and the entire military family earlier this year that there would rightly be no increases in any Tricare fees” in fiscal 2010, Matz said. “We took them at their word, and I can’t believe that a co-pay increase like this was allowed to go forward,” he added.

Obama is his own worst enemy. Nobody can be that stupid.

I suppose strictly speaking is was a prop.
Legislation written without the input of any opposing party whatsoever.
Two thousand, four hundred pages that the "authors" have the nerve to admit they haven't read.

But it's all too "urgent" to do it right?

Umm.
OK.

Now legislation is nothing but a “stunt”. Congress is not a body of lawmakers. No, they are “stunt-makers”. No wonder 0 voted “present” so much.

“The least experienced person in the room.” Yes, and the goofiest.

“Obama looked childish. He doesn’t realize he looked so foolish.” Exactly what I was thinking. This was a Grade AAA “Stand up Chuck” moment.

“I’m surprised the Dems didn’t go greenie and lecture about how many trees were killed to print the pile of crap.” Someone might.

“But it’s all too “urgent” to do it right?” Right. They need it so “urgently” that they have no time to read it, even though its affects are delayed for years. Oh, and trying to forbid future “stunt-makers” from writing “stunts” that can overturn this “stunt”.
