Awesome bill names continued

Last year, I was amused by John Boehner’s Regulations from the Executive In Need of Scrutiny (REINS) Act. But now that the Republicans are in the majority, they’re really giving up the subtlety with their bill to repeal Health Care Reform, which is called the Repealing the Job-Killing Health Care Law Act.

John Boehner gets cute with acronyms

John Boehner is proposing a bill to limit new federal regulations. He calls it the REINS Act, which stands for “Regulations from the Executive In Need of Scrutiny”.

I welcome this new era of passive-aggressive bill names and look forward to future bills like A Certain Texan Under-Performed (ACTUP), Cool your Ass down Leader of the Minority (CALM), and the STFUJB Act.
