Pelosi Healthcare Proposal H.R. 3 Isn't Just Destructive, It's Likely Unconstitutional

Alongside other conservative and libertarian organizations, we at CFIF have been highlighting the clear and present danger of Nancy Pelosi's (D - California) proposed healthcare legislation H.R. 3 in letters to Congress and commentaries.

Pelosi’s bill includes an astonishing 95% tax on total pharmaceutical sales – not on profits, but sales – for private companies that don’t play ball to Pelosi’s satisfaction. Her proposal would also impose foreign price controls, completely restructure the popular Medicare Part D program, and create a compulsory arbitration mechanism overseen by government bureaucrats...  Pelosi’s legislation would jeopardize nearly $1 trillion in U.S. pharmaceutical investment, undermine patent protections, suffocate drug innovation and ultimately punish consumers…[more]

Seinfeld's Wife Did Not Cook the Books Print
Tuesday, June 08 2010

A U.S. federal court of appeals ruled that Jessica Seinfeld's cookbook, "Deceptively Delicious: Simple Secrets to Get Your Kids Eating Good Food," did not plagiarize author Missy Chase Lapines' rival cookbook, "The Sneaky Chef: Simple Strategies for Hiding Healthy Foods in Kids' Favorite Meals."
 
In a lawsuit Seinfeld's comedic husband Jerry has jokingly called a case of "vegetable plagarism," the U.S. Second Circuit Court of Appeals declared that the two books are "not confusingly similar," adding in its written ruling that, "stockpiling vegetable purees for covert use in children's food is an idea that cannot be copyrighted."
 
In court papers, lawyers for Jessica Seinfeld had accused Lapine of falsely claiming she invented the idea of hiding fruits and vegetables in children's meals when "countless prior works utilized this very same unprotectable idea."

 Despite the latest court ruling, Lapine's lawyer noted that his client continues to pursue a defamation action against Jerry Seinfeld in New York state court.
