New health care bill is out!

Well, it's here - the combined House of Representatives health care bill. It's only 1,990 pages and contains the word 'shall' only 3,425 times.

Oh - and it has a separate 13-page bill to repeal the sustainable growth rate caps on Medicare spending ... and it doesn't say how it's going to be paid for ... and it's projected to cost more than $200 billion even though it's called the Affordable Health Care for America Act.

And ... in the age of proclaimed transparency, they checked IDs and prevented some people from attending the press announcement on the bill.

Read it and weep, America!

Maggie,

I would love to sit down with a great bottle of wine, a good cigar, and a copy of this bill. Unfortunately, doing so would be detrimental to my health.

Don't worry however, after due consideration, I'll still sit down with the wine and cigar.
