… and a Pony

The new Wash​ing​ton​Watch​.com blog (a project of yours truly, which, along with C@L, recently ignited a firestorm of controversy over federal bed bug legislation) has inaugurated a new category of post, called “… and a Pony”.

It’s for bills in Congress promising what you’d ask Santa Claus for after you finished with the stuff you thought you might actually get.

The inaugural recipient of this categorization is H.R. 6444, To provide affordable, guaranteed private health coverage that will make Americans healthier and can never be taken away.

Uh‐​huh. Yeah.
