The Liberals are going after Justice Antonin Scalia after his comments, "“You really want us to go through these 2,700 pages? Is this not totally unrealistic? That we are going to go through this enormous bill item by item and decide each one.” and the reference to the Cornhusker kickback.
First off, it is in the PPACA and was taken out by the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010 which was the reconciliation process, in order to amend the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Pub.L. 111-148). It was signed into law by President Barack Obama on March 30, 2010
The reconciliation process is were two different versions of a bill, the two remove or add to one or the other to come to an agreement that the versions are the same and can go to the President for signing into law.
You would think that it would have to be re-voted on in both houses of congress if anything were changed. Guess that might have slipped their minds.
If then Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi had given the members of the House the opportunity to read and review the full 2700+ Pages of the bill before it was voted on, they may have made it through the 2010 elections with little damage.
Nancy Pelosi and the #pOTUS thought there would be little backlash since we only would know what they told us. The Press was all for this. This was another time when the Press took it for the team. And they are not even on the team.
One day it will happen. The press will be out of the loop and backing the left and BOOM, a massive change on the left and the press will find out about it too late. Ask the Newspapers about it. Luckily magazines have a little bigger window to protect themselves.
I stand by what I say. I take responsibility for my actions. That by definition makes me out of the Press and definitely not a Liberal Politician, or is that Progressive Politician?
