Victory! Democrat Chief Inquisitor Henry Waxman has retreated from his attempt to intimidate companies who dare speak out about the costs and consequences of Obamacare.
His April 21 witch hunt session has been cancelled, according to left-wingers. (Update: Fox also reporting same.) The event is still listed on the House Energy and Commerce with the press release from last month, but no further information.
Cancellation confirmed by House GOP here.
Perhaps Waxman and Company thought better of it while contemplating the prospect of a nationwide revolt by all businesses who are simply complying with disclosure laws and accounting principles, and telling the truth about the burden of the Dems’ crushing mandates.
Never fear, though. Waxman has moved on to his next jihad: He’s calling for a ban on chewing tobacco in Major League Baseball.
Hey, Torquemada, whaddya say?
