Omnibus. The word means for everyone. In law it means a law which contains many laws or amendments. So basically what we have in this instance is a law that contains many laws, and they are for everyone. No wonder all of the so called laws that pass through our congress have names that go on forever and sound like they are good for us. The Help Everyone Including the Poor Reconciliation Act of 1999. The Lower Taxes and Give Everybody More Money Back Act of 2000. The Help the Children Eat Better and Live Longer Act of 2001. What a crock.
Why don't our illustrious leaders have the bravery to call these bills what they really are. The Tax The Shit Out Of Everyone Including The Poor Act of 1999. The Hide Some Fees On Your Phone Bill And In Your Property Tax Bend Over And Take It Act Of 2000. The Rob Anyone With A Job And Pay Some Civil Servant Bureaucrat More Money To Tax Us Act of 2001.
As Americans we need to start paying attention to what our so called leaders are doing. Of course most of them are leading only one thing: the lambs to the slaughter. And this guy is getting tired of being slaughtered.
I have an idea for a new bill: The Happy American Yippee I Actually Have A Future Now Act Of 2009. Translation: The Do Not Let The Door Hit Your Sorry Fat Ripping Us Off Ass On The Way Out Act of 2009.
It is time. They do not get it yet, but they will start to. Soon.
