“Its Bizarre, The Whole Bill Is bizarre.” (Congressman Manzullo)

Posted in politics by roving on August 16, 2009

Manzullo Illinois (and I)  actually have a sane Congressman. I know its hard to believe but when it came to cap and trade and the death bill, Manzullo is against both.

Manzullo has held town hall meetings and there were no yelling or protesting.  Another surprise for me. I had emailed him thanking him for his vote against cap and trade. If people are going to email their reps because they are angry, they should also email them and let them know they appreciate what they did.

Journal Standard: The Congressman said he has skimmed the entire 1,018 page bill, and has spent some 70 hours studying the legislation. “I’m about 40-percent through the bill, and it’s confusing for me, and I’m a lawyer,” Manzullo said.

Provisions of the health plan that are especially worrisome, according to the Congressman, include its cost, coverage, and the confusing rules and regulations of the legislation.

It’s bizarre, the whole bill is just bizarre,” Manzullo said.

“People need to go to their windows, stick their heads outside and scream ‘We’re not going to take this anymore!’,” Manzullo said Friday, Aug. 14, 2009, in an interview at The Journal-Standard.
