No! It is not the same things the Dems did!

More with the false fucking equivalency bullshit. The media is calling out the Repubs for meeting in secret regarding the health care bill.

But they always mention that Repubs weren't happy when Dems did this.

BULL FUCKING SHIT!

Pull up the video tape you lying mother fucking media. There was a full day where Obama pleaded with Repubs to come up with valid options, televised live, open to the public.

Now, were there private meetings, yes, but was the whole bill created in private, no.

2. There were something like a hundred hearings as well.

And changes made to the bill because Republicans. Mitch McConnell is one of the most vile creatures roaming this nation. And don't get me started on Paul Ryan.

3. There was a cartoon meme last week showing number of committees and hearings the

Democrats held for ACA compared to Kill care. Can anybody find it for me?

4. I've been trying to remember

I know that Obama promised that the bill would be available on-line for everyone to read, but can't remember if it actually was. I DO remember Nancy Pelosi saying something about passing the bill to find out what was in it.

The televised meeting, as I recall, was quite late in the process. Eddy Munster showed up with some figures about cost projections, and I think that was the first I had seen him, so it sounds like there was enough known by members of Congress that there were known costs involved.

Don't know. It was a long time ago.

5. There were lots of repug amendments in the ACA

They were discussed and voted for. They fought to get them in the bill, and then they wouldn't vote for it. I remember it well.
