If Your Senator Vote For The Baucus "Bill," Tar and Feather Them

Let's be very accurate about what the Senate is about to vote on today. They are not voting on a health care bill. There is no legislative language. They are voting on nothing more or less than a tentative and vaguely-designed wishlist that they will then back-fill after the fact.

I don't care if you are a Democrat. I don't care if you are a Republican. I don't care if you favor one of the various current health care proposals being offered, or if you'd rather prefer someone come up with a more workable idea.

Regardless of your politics, you should be outraged that the Senate Finance Committee (and the Senate as a whole) thinks it can get away with this confidence game. It is fraud, a classic bait-and-switch. They intend to vote on vaporware, and then design a substandard product after the fact.

We deserve better than this. We deserve to have real legislation to discuss and debate. Instead, these cowards want to vote on vague generalities so that they can deny their complicity later when it all falls apart. It is gutless, and a blatant betrayal of the citizens they were elected to represent.

Any Senator who votes for the so-called Baucus "Bill" should be dragged into the street, stripped naked, covered in boiling tar, then feathered. I suspect that with the miracles of modern medicine, a good many of them may even survive the procedure.

Unless, of course, their health care plan doesn't cover that.

well, maybe not boiling tar, which would likely kill them....not that would be any great loss, but still.

how about roof mastic? same general material, hard as hell to get off, and will definitely hold the feathers on.

after all, whats the point of the exercise if they aren't around for the humiliation part of it?

I was also thinking about roofing tar, available in 5 gallon buckets.

Pitchforks and torches are optional and encouraged. Seriously though, the most disappointing thing about this whole debacle is the fact these vermin will never face any kind of Justice in this world for the misery they cause wholesale on a daily basis.
