Update: Senate passes Insurance Profit Protection Act 60-39….

Update: The bribe fest is over, for now. The worst of all worlds is in this bill. HotAir has it. Per Politico we will all know wait until February for further action on this, or that could be a leak, Who the heck knows with these folks anymore? What I do know is there will be backlash and it will swell to the 10 midterm elections. Reap the whirlwind.

Democratic Senators are mugging for the camera congratulating themselves and talking about how terribly, terribly hard this was for them to accomplish.

In the immortal words of Eliza Doolittle, ‘just you wait ‘enry ‘iggins!’ Voters never forget. Especially not we bitter, clingy types.

(ps Obama just told NPR he thinks the tax on ‘Cadillac’ plans is  ‘a good idea’. Funny, he excoriated MAC for that proposal during the campaign. JUST WORDS.)

Boehner: Medicare Advantage *WILL* be cut, <200k *WILL* be taxed…

Courtesy of Rep. Boehner:

In an interview on Foxs Your World with Neil Cavuto, House Republican Leader John Boehner (R-OH) discussed the costly government takeover of the health care system that includes a litany of new tax increases, over $500 billion in cuts to Medicare for millions of seniors and the Obama Administrations recent gag order designed to keep seniors in the dark about the potential reductions in Medicare services. Leader Boehner once again called on the President and Democrats to scrap their costly proposal and work Republicans to create a bipartisan bill that improves the current system.
