Dirty deals, open threats, broken promises and disregard for democracy.... it’s a democrat thing. but Pelosi may have awoken the sleeping giant with a terrible wrath.....I know I'm awake.
Never before has the average American been treated to such a live-action view of the sordid politics necessary to push a deeply flawed bill to completion. It was dirty deals, open threats, broken promises and disregard for democracy that pulled ObamaCare to this point, and yesterday the same machinations pushed it across the finish line. Read the WSJ about how this bill became a law in "The Pelosi Sausage Factory"
What is different than in previous times is that all of these underhanded deals and outright bribes will quickly become publicly known at a time when the approval of Congress is already at 20% or less. The majority of the American people opposed this bill and their Democrat members of the House simply ignored the wishes of their constituents and think that bringing home some local "goodies" will make it right with the voters.
A few airports, more water to some farmers and other "deals" will seem very hollow when this and other travesties created by the Congress cause the US economy to collapse. The American people are starting to see that the US Congress and the Obama administration have made thug style Chicago politics national.
Anybody remember seeing "How a Bill becomes a Law" in grade school civics class?....Well, since the power grab of the Health Care bill that just passed, they will have to rewrite that.....another job created by Captain Bullshit.
