Will Porkulus Pelosi grill Dirty Harry’s Pork Chop?
The Pork-love that keeps Screwing
Thanks to the Pelosi-Obama-Reid Triumvirate, we are forced to buy Pork-laden Obamacare insurance at a Pork-laden price.
HarryCare’s Pork included “Cash for Cloture,” to secure 60 votes needed to vote on Senate Majority Leader ‘Dirty’ Harry Reid’s Heatlh care Reform Bill.
Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont received $10 billion for government health centers
Sen. Ben ‘Over’ Nelson of Nebraska received $100 million in Medicare subsidies (“Cornhusker Kickback”) whereas other states will most likely be forced to raise taxes to meet new enrollee demands.
Sen. Mary Landrieu of Louisiana received $300 million in the “Louisiana Purchase” of her vote for the Senate version of ObamaCare.
Sen. Patrick Leahy received $600 million for Medicaid payments in Vermont.
Sen. Chris Dodd received $100 million for a new hospital.
Sen. Roland Burris of Illinois received federal money for ACORN, the left-wing activist group connected to phony voter registration lists.
Nancy Pelosi told us that they need to pass ObamaCare in order to be surprised by all the pork projects loaded in it.
||You’ve heard about the controversies within the bill, the process about the bill, one or the other. But I don’t know if you have heard that it is legislation for the future, not just about health care for America, but about a healthier America, where preventive care is not something that you have to pay a deductible for or out of pocket. Prevention, prevention, prevention—it’s about diet, not diabetes. It’s going to be very, very exciting.
But we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of the controversy.

$5 billion to fund The Early Retiree Reinsurance Program. Government agencies and unions quickly applied for the free money. The benefit began on June 1st, 2010 and ends when Obamacare kicks in on Jan 1st, 2014.
As of January 2011, the Obama administration has issued waivers to 45 unions plus 177 businesses and charitable organizations. The temporary waivers (from the Obamacare law) allow health insurance plans to limit how much they will spend on medical coverage.
The Prevention and Public Health Fund received $750 million – H.R. 3082, Continuing Resolution for fiscal year 2011
The Prevention and Public Health Fund will be increased to $2 billion by 2015.
The Independent Payment Advisory Board will receive $15 million in 2012 and its funding increases at the rate of inflation for subsequent years.
The Independent Payment Advisory Board plays the key role in suppressing health care spending by limiting what treatment doctors are allowed to give their patients, the core of health care rationing in ObamaCare (created by sections 3403 and 10320 of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act in 2010).
The Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation, a grant program created by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, plans to hand out a total of $1 billion in grants of up to $30 million apiece to organizations creating new programs that test health care delivery system reforms.
