House Speaker Nancy Pelosi famously said "we have to pass the bill so you can find out what's in it."
Unfortunately, it turns out the Democrats had to pass the bill so they could find out what's in it too.
Oh, they knew about the well-documented kickbacks and bribes they'd be receiving, all of which made it into law. But they didn't know that their 2000-page bill fails to give promised coverage to kids with pre-existing illnesses. They didn't know that their bill lacks the $10 billion in funding the IRS will need to monitor every American for "health insurance compliance."
And they didn't know that the healthcare bill will help fund medications like Viagra for convicted sex offenders. Of course, they know now...and have specifically voted in favor of keeping the "performance enhancing drugs" flowing.
To paraphrase the great political philosopher and screen comedian Oliver Hardy: "This is another fine print mess you've gotten us into!"
