Possibly the Biggest Legislative Outrage of 2009

by Smitty (h/t Dan Collins at POWIP on Twitter)

Michelle Bachman says that Barny Frank's 1,300 page financial services takeover bill is worse than the healthcare legislation. Three hours of briefing, no analysis, and no debate. It went through the House like...thought...through the Speaker's head. Or something. This steaming pile must be stopped in the Senate at all costs.

Update: Jumping in Pools notes an Idaho Representative who voted in favor of H.R. 4173.

Of course, it the idea is bad, I almost don't need to check to see what my piece of work did. Can't find the voting record yet, but Jim Moran is nothing if not consistent.


  1. Yeah, if a bill is going to screw the public, you can be sure Jim Moran's greasy fingerprints will be all over it.

  2. Well, if Michelle Bachman says it's worse than the health care bill, then it must be true!
    Seriously, if you want to make a case for your ridiculous paranoia, why quote a ridiculous politician?

  3. And who would have been less ridiculous? Barney Frank? Barack Obama? What color is the sky on your planet?


  4. @Y4E,
    I did not quote Barney Frank.
