Allahpundit over at Hot Air, ever vigilant to find the most useful and needed news bits from all over the world, have found probably one of the most amazing news items evah.
It would appear that maybe Congress should have read that anti-American bill before they signed it. As Allahpundit points out, "Who knew that when Pelosi said they’d have to pass the bill so that people could find out what’s in it, “people” meant Congress?"
The law apparently bars members of Congress from the federal employees health program, on the assumption that lawmakers should join many of their constituents in getting coverage through new state-based markets known as insurance exchanges.
Under well-established canons of statutory interpretation, the report said, “a law takes effect on the date of its enactment” unless Congress clearly specifies otherwise. And Congress did not specify any other effective date for this part of the health care law. The law was enacted when President Obama signed it three weeks ago.
Is that the Benny Hill show song I hear playing in the background?
Oh, the hilarity ensues. Wait, who is that at the door? Why, its HOMER!!
Allahpundit points out:
In other words, theoretically the law kicks them out of the federal health plan now in order to force them to join insurance exchanges … that don’t exist yet. Looking forward to tomorrow, when we’re inevitably told that they meant to do that.
Ok. Now. Start holding your breath if you believe that they will uphold themselves to the rules they enact for everyone else.....
Ace of Spades calls them Rocket Scientists. I don't know if I would go that far. Maybe, Horse Sperm Collectors. Well, I don't know. Horses might not like being associated......
