Destroying More Jobs Cannot Wait Until Monday

Don't have much time this morning to comment further, but note the irony that today the jobless rate hit a 25-year high at 10.2%, and tomorrow night Democrats in the House of Representatives are planning to push through a health care restructuring bill that is guaranteed to kill more jobs. The Democrats refuse to wait until Monday for a vote and insist on a special session Saturday night.

Makes sense, at least when Nancy Pelosi and Barack Obama are running the show. Harry Reid comes across as the voice of reason, by slowing things down a tad in the Senate. That says it all.

Oh, and AMA and AARP - you people have no idea of the damage you are doing by supporting this last minute rush towards madness. Or maybe you do, but you don't care.

Yes, a Saturday night vote is essential, because destroying more jobs cannot wait until Monday.

    Bwhaaa! Nearly spat out my coffee, I laughed so loud! That was a GOOD one!

  2. Erick Erickson of RedState.com wrote this about the AMA endoresement this morning:

    "The state societies claim that they have the votes to win a resolution at the AMA conference, which begins tomorrow, forcing the AMA to rescind its endorsement if it doesn’t do so before the AMA meets."

    Plus, the HMO stocks have been on fire after the Tuesday elections. The sell side and the larger buy side guys often retain political consultants in Washington to help them form opinions about handicapping market moving legislation. They don't always get it right, but the price action in the HMO stocks seems to be signalling big, major market participants don't believe the final post-conference bill will pass that crushes the evil health insurers.

    PELOSI: Buy a $15,000 Policy or Go to Jail
    JCT Confirms Failure to Comply with Democrats’ Mandate Can Lead to 5 Years in Jail

    "Today, Ranking Member of the House Ways and Means Committee Dave Camp (R-MI) released a letter from the non-partisan Joint Committee on Taxation (JCT) confirming that the failure to comply with the individual mandate to buy health insurance contained in the Pelosi health care bill (H.R. 3962, as amended) could land people in jail. The JCT letter makes clear that Americans who do not maintain “acceptable health insurance coverage” and who choose not to pay the bill’s new individual mandate tax (generally 2.5% of income), are subject to numerous civil and criminal penalties, including criminal fines of up to $250,000 and imprisonment of up to five years..."
