Transparency as thick as London Fog

About: new rx for health plan: split bill - wsj.com

I'll bet that 95% of the public doesn't even understand this way of legislation perpertrated by the most "transparent administration in history". I suspect that none of the bills will be posted in their final form on the internet for 5 days (ow whatever Obama promised) before signing. Basically a 1000 page bill is being split in two so that the financial parts get buried in a finance bill requiring only a simple majority to pass & can't be philibustered.   The other half will be nuanced into some kind of a compromise bill which can be passed on the Democrats only senate.
<<== Obamacare as seen by the Obami Loyalists.

Splitting the bill and using reconciliation is called fighting for what you believe is best.  "Transparency" is unrelated.
Nope! What it means is the end of so called bipartisanshit!  What it means is ramming the bill down the public's throats in spite of the public not trusting government nor Congress.
Someday your children will say:

Fuck ALL Y'ALL!  for the terrible mess & the slavery to debt that you assholes have created!

R.I.P.
Never was any bipartisanship. It was always we won we're going to have it our way. Look at the results - stimulus, Iraq withdrawl, Afganistan, GM & Chrysler takeovers, Global Boondoggle, etc. Get used to what it looks like, you folks won't last forever & it looks to me like Congress has only until 2010.
