Want to see a copy of the Democratic Party's 1,990-page health care bill, introduced by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on the steps of the U.S. Capitol Thursday?
Rep. Paul Ryan, R-WI, 1st District, says he'd love to leave a copy of "Pelosi's massive health care overhaul" at each of the First District's libraries. But he can't. The airline on his flight back to Wisconsin "only allowed one carry-on item."
Instead, Ryan will drop off a single copy of the health care bill at the Franklin Public Library today at 11 a.m. His fellow Republican, Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner, 5th District, will drop one off at the Elm Grove Library on Saturday morning.
Ryan and Sensenbrenner shared a press release to share this tidbit of Republican Congressional humor. Blame the damn airlines.
But if you really want to read the bill -- which we're pretty sure few Republicans have managed to do yet -- it's online here. All 1,990 pages. Who loves ya, Baby?
