UPDATE to Poison Pill #4: Congress Calls Businesses On The Carpet

Congress has "invited" CEO's of large corporations to testify, submit all accounts, emails after claiming a huge loss due to ObamaCare.

We all know what that means:  get ready to be whacked for communicating the financial loss, caused by elimination of the retiree drug loss deduction, to investors.

I was once "invited" to testify before Congress on the antrhrax vaccine.  I asked the Pentagon to RSVP my regrets.

They said, "you don't understand."

In any case, it was unpleasant:  members walked in and out, delivered prepared diatribes, and left.  The rest was stupid questions from people who knew nothing of biological science.
