If it is such a good idea and a good plan, why ‘secret’?

So we don’t have to go to the link, can someone please report back as to the “committee” members he has doing this on his behalf?

The senior Senator from Chappaquiddick would be wiser to direct his efforts toward improving the health of his own liver....*and* his Chivas-soaked brain cells.

Socialism for all, I assume that means Kennedy will cancel all his offshore accounts and turn the money into the US treasury?

I mean, after all, who wouldn’t believe that Kennedy isn’t in the remaining 5% that the rest of us are going to live off of.

Perhaps because if it got out before 11/4 it would cost B Hussein Obama 4 battleground states and the RATS 5 "pickups" in the Senate.

Fat Teddy hasn’t ever paid a dime to the IRS because Papa Joe put his money into tax exempt trusts. Teddy coyly says he has no idea how many taxes he’s paid since it’s, ahem, ‘all in a blind trust’, (the press lets him get away with that every election cycle, and dummies vote for him even though he robs them blind.)The ugly truth is he’s lived high off the hog on inherited money and now intends to further tax the rest of us even after he’s dead.

Remember Hillary crafted her health care reform plan in secret also.

What about exposing these plans to the light of day? What about the tendency of some Congressmen to be blowhards and pontificate at hearings on various subjects? A subject such as reforming healthcare, or having gov’t control same, should gets lots of Congressional hearing time, and time to debate and explore all the angles of something as far reaching as what they want to do. Why the need for secrecy, if their plans are so good for the country, may I ask???

If there’s a President Obama and beefed up Democrat majorities in both House and Senate next year, watch out. This may well happen. Now the Democrats are harping about getting a 60 Democrat senator count, so they can break any Senate filibuster. They want to steam roller their opponents if elected. Watch out.

He would be wiser still to get right with his maker before he gets to the other side.

It probably isn’t him, it is his commie staffers and they are setting it up that when he dies, the outpouring of grief for the “lion of the senate” (barf) will cause the bill to pass.

Thanks. Congress is going nuts trying to get social legislation in place after an Obama win. His campaign is merely the tip of the ice berg. We are in for a major downturn if he is elected. Let’s see, socialized medicine, eliminate 401Ks, gov’t funded pensions, fairness doctrine,.... Nothing Obama has stated in his campaign.

I was going to ask the same question.

Thank you.

One thing that long time residents of the Gay State (like me) *do* know about Senator Splash is that he filed his mother's estate for probate in Florida instead of Massachusetts because at that time Massachusetts had a huge state death tax and Florida had none.And he did this in spite of the fact that his mother hadn't set foot outside of Massachusetts ***once*** in the 11 years before she died.

I called the Massachusetts Dept of Revenue (the tax office) once asking about this and the guy who I talked to said "we're not at liberty to discuss it"...even though the state could have easily won a challenge in court.I wonder if the Kennedys had "friends" in state government at that time?????

Glad to do it.


I fully expected a "love thine enemy" speech from some.

I still might. LOL

A health plan that I highly doubt he’d be a part of if it was in place when his brain cancer was detected. He can afford any kind of medical treatment but would stick the rest of us with socialized healthcare. No thanks.

It’s “secret” because Ted didn’t write it. It likely has been crafted together by his ideologues, and he has no idea what it says .
