    How about the CRS, is that good enough?

    In a shocking new report by C. Stephen Redhead from the Congressional Research Service it has been revealed that within the Health Care Reform legislation recently passed by Congress there exists over $105 Billion in appropriations to fund the legislation.

    Snarky little libs? Are you upset just because the libs in this thread aren't dumb enough to consider Bachmann as a very reliable source?

    Bachmann has made a claim that as far as that article goes, can't prove it.

    If you can please prove it then we'll have that discussion, but Bachmann often makes out landish claims j-mac.

    OMG! I feel like the posts are in time delay or something....How about the CRS will you accept their word or are they just hacks too?

    Do you think the $105 Billion is in there?

    Again, don't expect anyone to act surprised that the healthcare bill spent money on healthcare. The money wasn't hidden in the bill and was evaluated by the CBO and in your link nowhere does the CRS call the money hidden. Bachmann is just so ****ing stupid that it takes her this long to catch on to **** that is plainly obvious to most. The bill funded itself and was passed through congress as all bills are.

    This is pathetic that I should even have to explain this crap.

    Yes, snarky little libs....You know the type don't you? The ones that think that one liners and ad hominem attacks against the messenger, or poster are the way to win any argument rather than actually have an honest discussion about the topic?

    Re: Bachmann: Health care law contains $105 billion in hidden pre-approved spending

    PolitiFact | Michele Bachmann charges health care bill spent $105 billion 'secretly'

    We poked around the versions of the health care law that were up for consideration and found older versions that included both appropriations and fund transfers, some of which made it to the final bill. The CRS report Bachmann cited may have compiled the appropriated funding information into an easy-to-understand format, but itís not as if the spending was approved secretly.

    Steve Ellis of the nonpartisan Taxpayers for Common Sense said it was no secret: the Congressional Budget Office -- Congressí nonpartisan budget-analysis agency -- extensively detailed the spending in the bill.

    "Iím not saying that everybody knew everything that was in the health care bill, because itís almost impossible to do that. But it was documented that the money was in there," Ellis said. "Shame on them if they didnít know that."
    Facts are not something Bachmann is acquainted with.

    Yes. It's in there. Now, why should we be upset that congress actually funded a bill that they passed? Do you honestly think this money was purposefully hidden in the bill?
