Gee, who saw that big healthcare bill being foisted off on the states????

I guess everyone except for the senators, representatives, Obama, and the mainstream media.  Everyone else had the clue long before that bus left the station.  Pelosi and her hat trick ("But we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it") reminds me of a quote from Guys and Dolls wherein Sky Masterson is talking about advice from his daddy regarding a sucker bet:
One of these days in your travels, a guy is going to show you a brand-new deck of cards on which the seal is not yet broken. Then this guy is going to offer to bet you that he can make the jack of spades jump out of this brand-new deck of cards and squirt cider in your ear. But, son, do not accept this bet, because as sure as you stand there, you're going to wind up with an ear full of cider.
So now it looks like the state of Indiana is going to have approximately $3.6 billion worth of cider in our collective ears due to the healthcare reform act.  Thanks eversomuch to Pete Visclosky and Evan Bayh, those Democratic leadership lapdogs, for helping the state of Indiana to become less solvent than it was in a time of economic crisis. 

Remember this, come election time (yes I know that Bayh is out of it, but let's not put someone else who might be worse in his place) and let's boot Pete out on his ass since he can't seem to pull his head out of it long enough to actually represent the will of the people of the State of Indiana.
