The Hill is reporting tonight that the Democrats have published a copy of the bill that they plan to use to update the original Senate healthcare socialization bill that Pelosi plans to bring to the floor this week.
And it appears they’ve decided to go all-in on this one. Included in the bill appears to be the “public option” that was removed from the Senate bill. From page 1167 of the bill:
Subtitle B—Public Health Insurance Option
SEC. 221. ESTABLISHMENT AND ADMINISTRATION OF A PUBLIC HEALTH INSURANCE OPTION AS AN EXCHANGE-QUALIFIED HEALTH BENEFITS PLAN.
(a) ESTABLISHMENT.—For years beginning with Y1, the Secretary of Health and Human Services
Now we find that there’s more in the Bill that Team FOCOA is trying to slide by. Team FOCOA – (Full of Crap Obama Administration)

And it’s 2,309 pages long. The House Budget Committee has to start its markup today to have any shot at getting it done by the weekend, which means that this version may change over the next few days:
House Democrats hope to complete their work by this weekend, before President Barack Obama begins an overseas trip he delayed for several days to focus on healthcare.
The package released by the committee runs 2,309-pages.
House Democrats have promised the bill would be posted online well before the eventual vote on the package.
The markup by the Budget Committee is the first step toward bringing the measure to the House floor.
The big question will be what the bill contains that makes it ineligible for reconciliation, if anything. Any part not directly germane to budgeting should, according to the rules, have to go through normal Senate debate. Republicans will want to find as many of these as possible to get the parliamentarian to rule against the reconciliation process.
On page 2099, the nationalization of the student-loan industry appears in the bill, as promised. It’s difficult to tell whether that will create more problems for reconciliation by alienating Democrats worried about passing two government takeovers at once, or whether it’s a sweetener to convince some recalcitrant Democrats along who may have otherwise opposed the House changes to the Senate bill. …Continue Reading

Videos: Bachmann accuses Pelosi of manipulating the Massa Disasta at the Kill the Bill Rallyposted at 9:30 am on March 15, 2010 by Ed Morrissey
It took me most of the day yesterday, but I managed to finally get my video loaded of Michele Bachmann’s speech from the Kill the Bill Rally on Saturday afternoon in St. Paul. Rep. Bachmann spares no one in this 22-minute excerpt from her keynote address at the end of the rally. She accuses Nancy Pelosi and Democratic leadership in the House of covering up Eric Massa’s transgressions for months while they attempted to wheedle him into a yes vote on ObamaCare, then suddenly publicizing the allegations to get him to resign to eliminate his no vote instead….Continue Reading
March 15 (Bloomberg) — The U.S. and the U.K. have moved “substantially” closer to losing their AAA credit ratings as the cost of servicing their debt rose, according to Moody’s Investors Service.
The governments of the two economies must balance bringing down their debt burdens without damaging growth by removing fiscal stimulus too quickly, Pierre Cailleteau, managing director of sovereign risk at Moody’s in London, said in a telephone interview.
Under the ratings company’s so-called baseline scenario, the U.S. will spend more on debt service as a percentage of revenue this year than any other top-rated country except the U.K., and will be the biggest spender from 2011 to 2013, Moody’s said today in a report.
“We expect the situation to further deteriorate in terms of the key ratings metrics before they start stabilizing,” Cailleteau said. “This story is not going to stop at the end of the year. There is inertia in the deterioration of credit metrics.” ….Continue Reading
