That was in March... Guess what? Waxman Abruptly CANCELLED the subpeoena threats because But after investigating, House Democrats have concluded that the companies were RIGHT to tell investors and the government about the expected adverse effects of the law on their financial results.
Investigating? How do you feel that Democrats voted for a bill they did not read and have to INVESTIGATE the bill.. Shouldn't they have KNOWN what was in the bill?

When major companies declared that a provision of the new health care law would hurt earnings, Democrats were skeptical. But after investigating, House Democrats have concluded that the companies were right to tell investors and the government about the expected adverse effects of the law on their financial results. … In a memorandum summarizing its investigation, the Democratic staff of the committee said, “The companies acted properly and in accordance with accounting standards in submitting filings to the S.E.C. in March and April.”

Well, grly, they may not have known what was IN the bill per say, but they certainly knew how much it was going to really COST taxpayers a full WEEK before they voted on it!!! Hmmmmm....so who are the bold-faced liars now?! *sigh*
"The economic report released last week by Health and Human Services, which indicated that President Barack Obama's health care "reform" law would actually increase the cost of health care and impose higher costs on consumers, had been submitted to the office of HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebillus more than a week before the Congressional votes on the bill, according to career HHS sources, who added that Sebelius's staff refused to review the document before the vote was taken."
