You wanted good news? (UPDATED)

From Ace comes the best line of the day -- and a description I may steal and use in the future:

ObamaCare™ is apparently like a box of chocolates; you never know what you're going to get... even if you're the brain dead jackasses who wrote the fracking thing. If these drool bib wearing imbeciles can't even get it right for themselves, what shot do you have with this?

Heh.

Can we say "oops!"

Legislate in haste, repent in leisure - Congress may have legislated itself out of the Federal health insurance plan and into exchanges that won't be operating until 2014, and I bet they are sick about it:

In a new report, the Congressional Research Service says the law may have significant unintended consequences for the “personal health insurance coverage” of senators, representatives and their staff members.

For example, it says, the law may “remove members of Congress and Congressional staff” from their current coverage, in the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program, before any alternatives are available.

The confusion raises the inevitable question: If they did not know exactly what they were doing to themselves, did lawmakers who wrote and passed the bill fully grasp the details of how it would influence the lives of other Americans?

A piece of advice: READ THE FUCKING BILL BEFORE YOU PASS IT!
