By golly, Nancy Pelosi was right — they didn’t know what
was in ObamaCare until it passed! Of course,
in this case all she needed to do was ask her buddy
Harry Reid, who apparently sandbagged his party’s
gun-control wing by inserting an interesting clause
in the 2800-page bill that no one in Congress bothered
to read before voting on it. CNN’s Jim Acosta reveals the restriction on firearms-registration data collection
built into the 2010 law:
The reason Reid inserted this clause, CNN reports
without ever having actually talked to Reid (he declined comment), was to make the NRA “benign” in the
ObamaCare fight — and to push back against
“conspiracy theorists” who claimed that the bill
would allow Barack Obama to start grabbing guns.
Hey, that would never happen, right? Sure.
In any case, this isn’t that much of a bar on
Congressional action. What can be done in this
manner can be undone in the same manner.
I’d keep an eye on any thousand-page bill rushed to the
floor in this session to see if Reid reverses course.
