The worst part is, people have already found a way to circumvent the technology.

OOPS is an understatement.  From The New York Times:

In an unintended consequence of the new health care law, drug companies have begun notifying children’s hospitals around the country that they no longer qualify for large discounts on drugs used to treat rare medical conditions.

I think my favorite line in the article is from a House member who worked on the bill who said, “No one intended to take away any of the drug discounts that children’s hospitals already had.”

Maybe this is why Nancy Pelosi said, “But we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it.”  Hey Nancy, maybe you and your law writer comrades  should have thought about what you legislation would really do before you passed it!

Don’t ever forget, the politicians in Washington pretend to be smarter than you.  But they’re not.  They’re just better credentialed.

I thought the truthers and the birthers were deranged.  At least they had a legitimate reason.  With truthers, it was a tragedy of epic proportions bound to cause mental anguish that could lead to delusions.  The birthers have had to put up with roadblocks to documents they feel entitled to view.  Because they can’t, they assume a vast conspiracy.

But none of that exists here.  It’s just a freakin’ dance contest on broadcast TV.  And they’re pissed.  They’re also just plain nuts.

Barack W. Bush

I’ve been thinking about this for some time.  A reader at Instapundit sent in this list where it was published.

Let’s look at the current president’s accomplishments:

* Leaving Gitmo open.
* No trials for terrorists
* 30,000-soldier surge in Afghanistan.
* Extending tax cuts.
* Re-upping the Patriot Act.

Okay, so there are a few other things not mentioned on the list, like the healthcare bill, the politicization of the Justice Department, the abandonment of the missile shield in Europe that Poland still desires. and most of all, some disastrous judicial appointments.  But other things like the hoopla over the body-scanners … Do you really think that Bush wouldn’t have those installed at airports?

You have to pick your battles, and at least so far, the president’s rhetoric of change appears pretty hollow.  He may talk of change (which has emboldened our enemies), but in reality … on the biggest issues of our times … he’s pretty much just an extension of the last administration.

No wonder the left is screeching mad.
