We have to pass it to see what's in it...


quote:

Your medical plan is facing an unexpected expense, so you probably are, too. It's a new, $63-per-head fee to cushion the cost of covering people with pre-existing conditions under President Barack Obama's health care overhaul.

The charge, buried in a recent regulation, works out to tens of millions of dollars for the largest companies, employers say. Most of that is likely to be passed on to workers.

I honestly don't understand how she was not ran out of office by this statement. It goes against every thing that a US Representative is supposed to be about. She basically just told everyone that she doesn't even read the bills, she just votes yes or no based off of who sponsored the bill.

It's such a shame that the media didn't run her out of office with that assinine statement.

Kind of like how we passed Homeland Security and the Patriot Act without giving ample time for it to be read. 500 pages of information and they were given one night.. they should throw em all out.

At least with Obamacare there were no closed-door negotiations. We were able to watch, (in its entirety), congress debate the issue on C-SPAN, and we citizens had five days to read the bill online before Obama signed it.
