So it seems that obama, pelosi, and reid have hid $105 billion in appropriations in the obama care legislation. Is this why obama, pelosi, and reid did not want the legislators from reading the bill before signing it. We all remember when pelosi said that we needed to pass the bill just to find out what is in it.

Well now we find there is $105 billion in spending in this bill that obama, pelosi, and reid knew about, but decided to hide this information from other legislators and the American public.

Seems Rep Michelle Bachmann really cares for America and is now opening this can of worms.

" Rep. Michele Bachmann tells Newsmax that President Barack Obama, Sen. Harry Reid and Rep. Nancy Pelosi should apologize to the American people for the $105 billion appropriation they “deceitfully” hid in the healthcare reform legislation.

Bachmann expressed her anger over the $105 billion appropriation that has only now come to light in an updated Congressional Research Service report on the Obamacare legislation.

“What we need to do is defund Obamacare,” she says. “The House has the power of the purse.

“But we’ve just found out startling information, and I am calling on President Obama, Majority Leader Harry Reid and former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi to apologize to the American people and explain why in the bill known as Obamacare they put in over $105 billion in appropriations.

“The funny thing is, they forgot to tell the members of the Senate that there was $105 billion in spending in that bill. They forgot to tell members of the House. "


This is just another corrupt act that obama, pelosi, and reid have done against America, and it is time we demand that they be held accountable.

    They DIDN'T vote on it. The Dems used bribes and prostituted votes from their OWN party to get it passed. What a fool.

    If they thought someone so huge was in it, they should have refused to even put it to vote, in case you didn't catch it the first time. If this mythical $105 billion is in there, someone should have found it. They're the ones who had to read it - it's their job to make a big stink about the things they find wrong with it.

    It didn't matter if the Republicans voted on it or not the Republicans were outnumbered. All of the Republicans could have totally walked out of the House and the Senate leaving only the Democats in session, and it still would of passed at that time. How long would it have taken you to read over 2000pages of a Bill. 15 minutes ? I hardly think so.

    This is so tiring. Why put the nation through the process? Their hands have been caught in the Socialist cookie jar, and they need to be called upon to leave voluntarily. Accountability. That's what it's about. They've been found out and now they need to be held accountable.

    Obamacare - A reparationist, reverse-prejudiced, socialist based, Peter/Paul debacle, under which it is deemed acceptable to take money from working Americans, to enable generational welfare mooches to continue "opting out" of the workforce. working americans enable generational welfare mooches continue opting workforce

    This legislation was gone over for a year; the final bill was available to the staffs of each and every Rep. and Senator in Congress. Reading and then voting for or against legislation is their JOB. They have an entire staff of people and yet no one could read the bill and find this?

    Their fault... just another Republican talking point that fails to embarrass anyone other than the people who didn't catch it in the first place.

    Yes it was. The proposed bills were available online; I'm pretty sure I still have them. If the bills weren't available then what 2,500 page bill were they parading around the Capitol? Yeah. It was available and they have an entire staff of people who are supposed to help them read the legislation. It's not news.

    [...] They weren't allowed to read the bill. No one read the bill before it was passed. Pelosi said that it had to be passed in order to KNOW what is in it and the Democrats signed it behind closed doors.

    You are seriously delusional if you believe that. I read at least two of the different proposed bills over the entire year that health care reform was being debated. The bills were readily available to be read if you had half of a brain and know how to use the internet... I'm sure the Republican legislators could have obtained them.

    IF they, Obama, Pelosi and Reid intentionally hid $ 105 billion dollars, with the intent of siphoning it off for their own use..then yes..they should be held accountable and be brought to bear for embezzelment...and dutifully discharged by Impeachment Proceedings!

    However....as you know....it is the Congress and Senate that bring about the Impeachment Proceedings...and you can forget those worthless members of our Supreme Court. all they are good for is to follow the frigging Leader. Supreme Court my ass...they haven't made a decent decision in more years than I care to count.

    If so, I'd have to change my opinion. But it's seems strange to me that they wouldn't have a couple days - at least - to read the bill.

    it turns out Pelosi was right when she said, “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it.” Because now, months after passage, we are discovering an astonishing $105,464,000,000 has already been appropriated to the Health and Human Services Secretary for ObamaCare through FY2019.

    When ObamaCare was passed, Democrats knew they would lose the gavel. But this funding ensures they will not lose their prized government takeover of health care because it’s already well-funded.

    The Congressional Research Service outlined the billions appropriated to ObamaCare in their report, “Appropriations and Fund transfers in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA).” http://www.haponline.org/down...

    Some of what’s included:

    -Section 1311(a) of ObamaCare provides an unlimited appropriation to the Health and Human Services Secretary to award grants to states for Exchanges.
    -Section 4002 essentially creates a $16 billion slush fund for the HHS Secretary to spend and $2 billion is appropriated to the Secretary per year in perpetuity after 2015.
    -Section 4101(a) allows $230 million in appropriation for school-based health centers.
    -Section 5508 appropriates $230 million for expanded primary care residency programs.
    -Section 2953 allocates $320 to Title XX-type education programs.

    Yes, and we should not have to wait another 2 years to vote this dickhead out of office. What these 3 have done is illegally hiding important information on we the people , plus those in the senate and house that had no clue what was in that bill. It's like you said, on how Pelosi put it, WE NEED TO PASS THIS BILL, TO FIND OUT WHAT'S IN IT !!!!

    Well now that we found that even more S*** was in this bill than we bargained for, and for those three, Curly, Larry and Moe, to act dumb enough so that no one would find out. Thank You Michelle Bachman for blowing the whistle on them.

    I SAY IMPEACH AND PUT THEM ALL BEHIND BARS, WHERE THEY BELONG. moe act dumb michelle bachman blowing whistle impeach bars obama  pelosi  and reid
