House GOP Leader John Boehner took to the floor and started reading from the 300 page amendment that the Democrats drafted and dropped on the legislatures at 3 AM, there was literally hundreds of items imposing federal control over your life. Highlights include:

* You might not be able to sell your house! By the time you go through the costs of getting it up to seller's codes proposed by this bill, you might as well stay put!
