Call me Skeptical

November 18, 2009

Let’s say that the House Health Bill that has passed is GREAT for America.  And let’s say that the estimate that has been made is perfect and that is what the Bill WILL cost.  Hoorah!!!!!  End of story!!  Congratulations are due to the Democrats and LONE Republican that voted FOR the Bill.

What if…??????

What if they are WRONG?  I know, I know, congress has NEVER been wrong in the past, but…..What if???

Here is another solution, as opposed to the one I wrote here.  Put an Amendment in the Bill that states:

IF the cost is greater than the accepted estimate, then the money to pay the excess cost first comes from the Representatives and Senators that voted FOR the Bill.  This can come from their salary, savings, investments, or estates, whether or not they are still in those positions.  NO money, above the accepted estimate, will come from any place other than the ones who voted FOR the Bill until they, or their estates, have $0 in assets.  Any money that they have donated or given away is also subject to seizure, this includes spouses money, heirs money, charity, loan payments, or political activities.

Let me know what you think.

P.S. Send a pink slip to your representatives here.
