Now they want to read

The Washington Times Daily - - EDITORIAL - JACK DUCK­WORTH Burke, Va.

I find it laugh­able that the Demo­cratic con­gres­sional mem­bers are claim­ing no one has had time to read or study the 1,000page, Repub­li­can-spon­sored Oba­macare mod­i­fi­ca­tion. Yet I seem to re­mem­ber that in 2010, then House Speaker Nancy Pelosi urged Congress to pass Pres­i­dent Obama’s 2,000-page health-care act so that Congress and all of Amer­ica could “find out what’s in it … ”

It was only af­ter pas­sage that we learned Oba­macare in­cluded taxes on vir­tu­ally all recre­ational equip­ment and pur­suits, in­clud­ing fish­ing, hunt­ing, etc. As it turned out, Oba­macare was sup­posed to be funded through the tax­a­tion of just about ev­ery­thing Amer­i­cans do to re­main sane and healthy.
