Open up and say "Cram it!"

It looks as though there is a strong chance Reid is going to piggy-back the Healthcare Bill on to legislation where they once again use laws to violate employment contracts. This of course has nothing to do with healthcare, but who's checking anyway.
Nicholas Ballasy reports “a senior aide to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) told CNSNews.com that it is ‘likely’ that Reid will use H.R. 1586—a bill passed by the House in March to impose a 90-percent tax on bonuses paid to employees of certain bailed-out financial institutions—as a ‘shell’ for enacting the final version of the Senate’s health care bill, which Reid is responsible for crafting.”
This of course violates the very transparency and public involvement on legislation that Obama promised, but eh, what are pesky promises anyway.....
Moreover, the thing we can all take away from the use of this procedure if it goes down in this way? Our lawmakers don't give a damn what we the people think. Democrat or Republican they will do what they please without one iota of thought about you.
