It appears that if any corporation or person dares to make any news that might work against Obama, the little Commissars in Congress are going to make them pay.
Several Corporations announced they would be taking hits to their bottom lines as a result of Obamacare. These announcements and writedowns are required by law. But Henry Waxman says that since HIS analysts say everything should be cheaper now, this must be impossible. So he is ordering them to appear before Congress to explain themselves:
Good post on the true cost of ObamaCare. But it gets better: the Dems are now shaking down CEOs who don’t get with the program. In the attached letter, Henry Waxman not only orders the CEOs of AT&T, Caterpillar, Deere & Co, and Verizon to testify before the Energy and Commerce Committee, but also to produce internal analyses and emails related to their statements. They don’t expressly subpoena the CEOs, so we can hope that they tell the Dems to GFY, though somehow I doubt that will happen.
The message is clear: You may not go to the news media and tell them the damage that Obamacare is doing to your company. If you do, we are going to bring you before Congress, treat you like common criminals, and smear your good name.
It is horrific that our government would act this way.
This used to be a free country.
Now, it appears the Commisars have taken over, and will use the full powers of government to bully anyone who dares to oppose them – or even tell truths that they don’t want told.
