    As if pushing through the stimulus bill in record time only later to "discover" that it contained permission for AIG execs to receive big bonuses wasn't enough. As if not pushing it through so fast that congress didn't even have time to read it wasn't enough. It was no big deal after all to spend more money than has ever been spent on just about any legislation in history which we have not seen a single stimulatory effect from yet. It was no big deal to triple the national debt to historic levels weakening the dollar and reducing the net worth of every single American in the process.

    Now they are planning to push through health care legislation on the fast track as well. The plan is to make the most comprehensively sweeping change in the fabric of our society and grow the government larger than at just about any other time in history with fewer than 20 hours of senate debate.

    Story here:

    Does anyone else see that our heath care system will be a bigger disaster than the stimulus bills? Getting this right is going to be tricky business. This is not the time to rush into things.

    Surely even democrats and progressives can see the foolishness of repeating the same mistake yet again by not considering a bill before passing it. Why the rush? Is he afraid that once Americans figure out what is happening the tea parties won't just be symbolic repeats of the original anymore?
