The House on Wednesday for the second time in 7 days passed a de facto tax hike under the guise of fixing the Alternative Minimum Tax:
226 / 229 – 99% – Democrats in favor of de facto tax hike
0 / 190 – 0% – Republicans in favor of de facto tax hike
3 / 229 – 1% – Democrats opposed to de facto tax hike
190 / 190 – 100% – Republicans opposed to de facto tax hike
Obviously that bill has no chance of escaping an override-proof veto under the current administration.
Nanny State Banking + Real Estate Laws
A House Committee on Wednesday cleared a ghastly nanny state mortgage loan and bankruptcy law bill:
100% – 16 / 16 – Democrats in favor
6% – 1 / 16 – Republicans in favor
0% – 0 / 16 – Democrats opposed
94% – 15 / 16 – Republicans opposed
That bill in essence would give borrowers and bankruptcy judges retroactive veto power over private mortgage loan contracts.
Obviously there’s not a chance of that bill or anything along those lines escaping a guaranteed and override-proof veto by Bush 43.
Nanny State Heathcare
Here’s a link to the actual text of the president’s veto message from Wednesday regarding the Democrats’ latest attempt to enact that socialized medicine healthcare bill. For obvious reasons Pravda-media’s reporting was so biased and agenda-driven as to be utterly useless.

Incidentally, keep in mind as you digest the machinations of Congress that several *million* conservatives are going to stay home and not vote next November. Surreal, huh?
Fortunately Hillary is to electability what Kitty Dukakis was to sobriety.
