In her typical arrogant fashion, Speaker Pelosi told the people assembled there that "...[W]e have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it."
In other words, congress needs to continue to work behind closed doors with no public transparency as they wheel and deal in an effort to bribe, beg, and browbeat any dissenting congressmen into supporting this bill. They will adjust whatever provisions are necessary in the bill until they get the most socialistic version that they think they can pass.
Never mind that a large majority of the American people have loudly and consistently stated that they do not WANT this monstrosity passed. They want the existing problems with health care fixed. They do NOT want a myriad of new problems created through government's interventionist attempts to pass an un-Constitutional law regarding health care.
Again, I ask, if this bill is going to be so darned good, why have the Democrats on pretty near party line votes thus far, shot down any GOP-offered amendment to the bill to ensure that congress must also be covered under this new law for their health care? Their silence is deafening on the subject.
