2. They've lied twice in this pic without saying a word.
First, they claim the health care bill is 2000 pages. However, that stack of paper they're showing is 2 or 3 times that size. Secondly, last night on the news, they said the true size of the bill, with correct font size and spacing, is slightly smaller that Palin's book. That's 400 and some pages. These guys can lie without even moving their lips.

Here's page 4:

1 Americans and reduce the growth in health care
2 spending.
3 (2) BUILDING ON CURRENT SYSTEM.This di4
vision achieves this purpose by building on what
5 works in todays health care system, while repairing
6 the aspects that are broken.

forms;
10 (B) creates a new Health Insurance Ex11
change, with a public health insurance option
12 alongside private plans;
13 (C) includes sliding scale affordability
14 credits; and
15 (D) initiates shared responsibility among
16 workers, employers, and the Government;
17 so that all Americans have coverage of essential
18 health benefits.
19 (4) HEALTH DELIVERY REFORM.This division
20 institutes health delivery system reforms both to in21
crease quality and to reduce growth in health spend22
ing so that health care becomes more affordable for
23 businesses, families, and Government.
24 (b) TABLE OF CONTENTS OF DIVISION.The table
25 of contents of this division is as follows:

3. Yup. Doom, gloom and negativity. Never anything constructive.
Just piss and moan. Watching the Democrats come out and do a press conference, followed by these asshats doing theirs, is like 360 degrees, day and night, etc.. Like you said - they pout.

9. What the fuck is with the aversion to reading?
These guys complain about the length of the bill like they cant read or something. What was the other garbage i heard on the house bill,oh yea "it has 254 shalls in it" WTF?

They glorify ignorance every day its freaking maddening.
