The Democratic “stimulus” plan is packed full of all sorts of goodies. Just today, everyone is finding out that someone slipped in a provision to anoint a national health czar. Senator Arlen Specter, one of just three Republicans to support the bill, expressed surprise upon learning about this provision. How do you vote on something you don’t understand? Have the trio of Republican supporters even read the thing?

This needs to be slowed down, and taken apart, so that everyone — public and Senators — understands what’s in there. If not, we’ll be like the characters in the old Prego spaghetti sauce commercial.
