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

    Will one of you conservatives who is freaking out about this explain to me how, exactly, this money was "hidden?"

    By putting it in the bill?

    edit: maybe they're mad they didn't get a certified letter personally informing them?

    Right. Something clearly written is not hidden.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Except that it turns out the money was openly in the bill, the CBO even made their projections figuring with that money, and the law has been rules to be constitutional as often as unconstitutional. So other than being wrong about every single thing you presented, you got it.

    Reality has a liberal bias.

    Yep I saw them Red. And to tell you the truth, there is an aspect of truth in what you are saying....It was in the bill when offered. However, when you hand over a 2,700 page bill literally hours before the vote on that bill in the middle of the night, are you really telling me that all's on the up and up with that?

    Either way, the taxpayers aren't going to see the 105 billion ever again. It's as good as gone.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
