How a (horrible) bill becomes a law (in 2010)

If you have a strong stomach, check out this article from Kimberley Strassel on the wrangling, threats and capitulations that led to the passage of "health care reform" (just wondering: how one can inevitably lower quality and increase costs and call it reform?). The plain truth is that votes last night were bought, pure and simple, and no one is even really trying to hide it.

At the center of the maelstrom will be Bart Stupak who up until a few days ago was playing the part of principled pro-life Democrat and today is recognized (at least by me) as "Benedict Bart". Apparently someone shouted "baby killer" from the Republican side of the House, aimed at him. Rightly so. It is time that this faux-friend of life gets run out of Congress by Northern Michiganders. He is either too dense to realize that he was sold a pig-in-a-poke with the toothless "executive order" or he knows it full well and doesn't care. Either way, he has no business representing Northern Michigan.

Let's hope that the voters in this country run every one of these people out of our House in November so we the people can get started on the hard work of undoing this giant step toward socialized medicine. We have let these clowns run wild with our money and our country for too long. No more.
