The Nostrildamus Hearings, marching ever closer to communism…

Rat boy is at it again.Taking an old cue from the House Committee on Un-American Activities, chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee Representative Waxman (D) intends to hold hearings to intimidate and vilify Caterpillar, Verizon, AT&T and Deere.

It seems these firms have publicly made it known that the newly passed health care reform bill will have an adverse effect on their bottom lines. Caterpillar claims the measure will raise their costs by $100 million just in the first year. The chairman turned Politburo chief, Waxman, has asked each of the corporate representatives to provide full documentation detailing how they arrived at their estimates. This is clearly a move to intimdate and silence any dissenting voices against the Health Care Reform act.

I say bully! go ahead and make an ass of yourself. Vilify the companies that are providing goods and services, generating revenue, and more importantly jobs. But you better make hay while the sun shines… these asinine displays  of complete arrogance will be remembered come election day…

Ratboy strikes again…

Henry aka Ratboy Waxman and his denizen of leftist rats in the Energy and Commerce Committee have take time away from their Cap and Trade bill to kill the American energy industry to embark on another round of demonizing the insurance industry this week. Letters were sent out to all the major carriers demanding salary, bonus, stock options, stock sales, incentives, pensions, other forms of compensation,  total revenues, net income, and dividend payments for the years 2003 to 2008. The letters are signed Henry Waxman and Bart Stupak with cc’s to Joe Barton, and Greg Walden. The letter requires that the information requested must be provided by September 14th, 2009. Of particular note, Bart Stupak, Chairman Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations title appears in the letter to add to the intimidation factor. First of all, don’t all of these company execs file Tax Returns. Most if not all of these companies are publicly traded. And if they are not, they are in the insurance industry, which is overseen by the States they operate in, and the Federal Government. I call bull shit… this is nothing more than a witch hunt, and yet another ploy by the left to try and advance their agenda against the will of the public.

Meanwhile the polls still show the majority of Americans are satisfied with their insurance companies. Henry, as usual, you are barking up the wrong tree…
