DID YOU KNOW
Before he left office, Pres. Bush sneaked in a rule to allow people to defer their taxes for 6 years?!! Oh, wait a minute–that rule is in the new Democrat Stinkulus Bill. Don’t worry, though; you can qualify, too…if you’re a billionaire like Microsoft founder Paul Allen.
Kinda’ makes you wonder what else is in there. Hmmm…here’s something;
Rep. Waxman says the law that requires the creation of “electronic health records for each person in the United States by 2014” does not require the creation of electronic health records for each person in the United States by 2014.
When asked whether there was a provision in the bill that allowed Americans to keep their records out of the program, Waxman said, “Yes.”…However, Waxman’s office did not provide CNSNews.com with the provision in the bill that would allow individuals to exempt themselves from the program. …Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) told CNSNews.com, when asked about the provision. “I haven’t thought about it.”
He didn’t think about it, he just voted for it.
But at least you have the Government’s Iron-Clad, Rock-Solid Promise that your medical records will remain private. Except for the five pages of exemptions and exceptions. Including “if the Secretary feels like it, has a bad hair day or we decide we just want the money.”
And they said George W. Bush doesn’t read.
