Proponents of the Democratic health care bill make the claim that it will make health insurance affordable, improve our deficit outlook, and make our health insurance system sustainable. None of those claims are even close to being true and everyone who knows anything about this debate knows that.What this means, of course, is that President Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and every other advocate for this steaming pile of shit is a bald-faced, congenital liar. If this bill passes we will have no end of Hell.
Congressman Joe Wilson was right.
Another good summation of the politics of the health care bill in Commentary Magazine:
Why hasn’t the president been able to win over these and the other needed House Democrats? Well, the nature of the bill simply cannot be disguised – it’s a massive new entitlement, a huge tax increase, a whack at Medicare, and set of Rube Goldberg funding gimmicks designed to conceal the true cost. The lawmakers know it, and the public knows it.Yes, anyone who has been paying attention, and not deluding themselves, knows this bill is a dog, layering another entitlement program on top of massive unfunded mandates in Medicare and Medicaid that threaten to bankrupt the nation.
The Boston Herald seems to agree with me:
As liberal Sen. Dick Durbin just admitted, “Anyone who would stand before you and say well, if you pass health care reform next year’s health care premiums are going down, I don’t think is telling the truth.”So, Senator Durbin also thinks President Obama is a liar. I'll say it again. If Obamacare passes I predict that middle class taxes will go way up, and middle class health care will be of poorer quality than we have today. The Democratic Party is telling the Big Lie here. I hope the American people can prevent them from ramming this thing into law.
And that “anyone” would be the president.
