Irresponsibility on Steroids

Just when you think things can't possibly be worse with the pending health-care bill, you learn they are indeed going from bad to worse.  According to Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell, the Democratic leadership has been privately crafting a bill in the Majority Leader's conference room that is different from the bill that's currently on the Senate floor.  They are attempting to rush this bill through and are going to ask the Senate to vote on a bill that no one outside the conference room has even seen! 

This is absolutely reprehensible.  They are attempting to rush passage of a bill of historical significance.  It has ramifications for our economy, our ability to deliver high-quality health-care, and the prosperity of our country, yet they don't want to allow time for debate. 

This has been a dream of Democrats for decades and they are not about to forego this opportunity.  Dems, political pundits, and newscasters who are in bed with the Democrats keep reminding us that this is "historical".  Well, so were Pearl Harbor and 9/11; historical and good are two different things.
