Let’s See If I’ve Got This Straight

Posted on August 12, 2009 11:45 pm

If the government gives a big wad of cash to your business, they can tell you how much you can pay your employees, what mode of transportation you can take, and where you can travel to because you’re on the taxpayer’s dime.

BUT

If the government is spending big wads of cash on your health care, they promise not to interfere with any health-related choices you’d care to make, no matter how many taxpayer’s dimes it costs.

Anybody buying this?

    A promise is a promise.
    What, like you can’t trust the word of a politician.
    C’mon, man quit being a nay-saying, hate filled racist.

    You know everything that comes out of the White House is TRUTH, especially the latest , truthier truth that is opposite the truth that was released a few hours, days or weeks ago.
    Like the campaign slogan said:
    “Change you can believe in, (as you wait for the next change).”

    Oh, and you’ll have really tough negotiations about the minutiae of the health-related choices they ARE going to interfere with, and it’s ok once the bill is passed because the rules will NEVER change.

    It’s HEALTHCARE CALVINBALL!!!!

    Congressional Rules permit the speakers who have the floor to revise and extend their comments before they(their words) are entered into the Congressional Record, with the Mr./Madam Speaker’s permission. They revise and amend bills all the time, so in essence they have been playing CONGRESSIONAL CALVINBALL for a long, long time.

    Excellent post, Harvey (ITYRN).

    It’s a corollary to “If you take the king’s dollar, you must do the king’s bidding.”
