Here we go again. Time for another Let’s Make a Deal Watch in the Era of Hope of Change. As GOP Rep. Paul Ryan noted the other day at the House Budget Committee wreckonciliation shell hearing: “We are not governing here today, we are greasing the skids.”
First, a link refresher: Beltway Christmas: Cash for corruptocrats; the Demcare bribe list, Pt. I; Demcare bribe list, Pt. II; “A Reading Guide to the Senate Bill’s Backroom Deals”; and The Chicago Way: Judgeships for Demcare votes?
Now, here’s my rundown on the latest bribes and payoffs. GOP Sen. Tom Coburn is also on high alert.
Michelle’s updated list includes: Hospital Helpers for Nebraska and Tennessee, the Student Loan Loophole for North Dakota, the LaRaza lollipop, and Water Wheeling and Dealing. Be sure to go and read the sick details of these deals. The sad part is it’s probably only the tip of the iceberg.
What happen to honest government?
All this bribery and undermining of the Constitution to pass healthcare is downright disgusting.
How’s that hope and change y’all voted for working out?
