Great Moments In Health Care Analysis

As Neo-Neocon writes, “What an oily, condescending, manipulative, lying piece of work” is Nancy Pelosi. Here’s the Speaker of the House’s detailed explanation of what’s in the bill we had to wait until passed before we could see:

“It’s like the back of the refrigerator. You see all these wires and the rest. All you need to know is, you open the door. The light goes on.”

Yes, and it’s an incandescent bulb, which you’re planning to ban in 2014, powered by electricity produced by a coal plant that you’re trying to regulate into bankruptcy. And the fridge is filled with food, half of which you’re trying to ban, the other half you’re trying to tax.

(And that doesn’t even get into the flashbacks to fellow Democrat William Jefferson and his fridge full of cash.)

Brilliant analogy, Nancy.

Come November, hopefully the refrigerator door will be closed so that Congress can be put on a regulatory diet.

Update: In the comments below, a reader suggests, “We can no longer ‘kill the bill,’ but we can take a hint from the last Indiana Jones movie and ‘Nuke the Fridge!’”
