ObamaNationCare explained

In addition to capturing the massive expansion of government and the overwhelming complexity of new regulations and taxes, the chart portrays:
  • $569 billion in higher taxes;
  • $529 billion in cuts to Medicare;
  • swelling of the ranks of Medicaid by 16 million;
  • 17 major insurance mandates; and
  • the creation of two new bureaucracies with powers to impose future rationing: the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute and the Independent Payments Advisory Board.

Brady admits committee analysts could not fit the entire health care bill on one chart. "This portrays only about one-third of the complexity of the final bill. It’s actually worse than this."

Putrid Unethical Waters

Rep. Waters charged on three counts
The House ethics committee on Monday outlined its charges against Rep. Maxine Waters, who is accused of helping a bank in which her husband owned stock secure federal bailout funds.

The committee charged the 10-term California Democrat with three counts of violating House rules and the federal ethics code in connection with her effort to arrange a 2008 meeting between Treasury officials and representatives with OneUnited bank.
Crooked as a dog's hind leg.

Standard behavior for Democrats lately.

Most ethical congress in history my ass.

Judicial Legislation

Judge re-writes California Constitution.
(08-04) 14:34 PDT SAN FRANCISCO -- A federal judge today struck down Proposition 8, the voter-passed November 2008 initiative that defined marriage as the union of a man and a woman.

U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker found that the ban on same-sex marriage violated the constitutional due process and equal protection rights of a pair of couples - one lesbian and one gay - who sued.
Due process? What process?

Equal protection?
Whether you are homo or hetro, we all have the same rights.
The judge ordered an injunction against enforcement of Prop. 8 but issued a temporary stay until he decides whether to suspend his ruling while it is being appealed. The stay means that same-sex couples are still prohibited from marrying.
Well, at least the judge didn't completely poke a stick into the eye of the people of California.

"Proposition 8 fails to advance any rational basis in singling out gay men and lesbians for denial of a marriage license," Walker wrote in a 136-page rulin
Wrong! A homo can get married just like a hetro.

Did this Judge always have a desire to marry a sibling?
Did he want to marry his father?
The constitutional right to marry, Walker said, "protects an individual's choice of marital partner regardless of gender."
Of which right does this nut job speak?

And don't make me go all Tina Turner on your ass!

Whether you are homo or hetro, we all have the same rights.

Emmer's bill crafted for more prescription drug options.

Yes, the left is all in a tizzy over Emmer's DUI bill. Mitch Berg shreds the left's argument to pieces here and here.

But we all know the real reason for Emmer's proposal was to enable Minnesotans the ability to enter Canada and buy cheaper prescription drugs if they had a DUI more than 10 years ago.

As I have posted before:
According to Canadian Law, anyone with a past DUI is considered a member of an Inadmissible Class. A DUI on your record from 20 years ago will prevent you from entering the country.

Now it is quite obvious that Emmer's proposal to remove a DUI from a person's record after 10 years of good behavior would indeed help those that need to join Dayton and go to Canada to get cheaper drugs.

Might I also suggest someone with a past DUI hop on the next Dayton Drug Bus and be sure to notify Canadian customs. Heh heh heh. Turn that bus around.
