    Was there something about "it has nothing to do with Bush" that you didn't understand?
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    Has it been a rough week for you?

    I mean, comparing a budget, which is for ALL of government, to a health care bill (i.e., small fraction of economy)... and at that, failing on the comparison, both by falling short 1200+ pages, and scope covered.

    Do you really believe everyone else is so stupid as to fall that?

    It is far from the first time you have invoked him.

    I am not talking about Bush. I'm talking about the hypocrisy of Republicans who go ape**** over the length of ACA but who never said a peep about the many Republican bills that were nearly as long.

    Five of the top 10 longest bills in the past decade were written by Republicans. In fact, the House health care bill is a mere 68 words shorter than a transportation measure introduced in '05 by Alaska Republican Rep. Don Young.

    Here's the top 10, with GOP bills in bold:

    1. 314,900 words, "Affordable Health Care for American Act," 2009, Rep. John Dingell (D-Mich.)

    2. 314,832 words, "Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users," 2005, Rep. Don Young (R-Alaska)

    3. 314,573 words, "Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act," 2009, Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.)

    4. 296,111 words, "Consolidated Appropriations Act," 2005, Rep. James Kolbe (R-Ariz.)

    5. 276,849 words, "Consolidated Appropriations Act," 2008 Rep. Nita Lowey (D-N.Y.)

    6. 274,559 words, "No Child Left Behind Act," 2001, Rep. John Boehner (R-Ohio)

    7. 258,205 words, "National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2008," Rep. Ike Skelton (D-Mo.)

    8. 250,286 words, "Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008," Rep. Collin Peterson (D-Minn.)

    9. 246,984 words, "Consolidated Appropriations Resolution," 2003, Rep. Bill Young (R-Fla.)

    10. 226,492 words, "Energy Policy Act," 2005, Rep. Joe Barton (R-Texas)

    So the right can use past Presidents as a reference but the left can't? Seems to go with the rest of the one sided rules the GOP expects everyone to follow...

In other words, when I say that Bush had a long bill I'm not criticizing Bush. I recognize that complex legislation sometimes requires a long bill.

    Where is the Ubama's administration budget?....Oh snap...there is none. Just the way they like it. Wouldn't want to stifle there redistribution of wealth.
