The New Speed of Health Care Reform
Obama says "What's the Hurry?"
Promises, promises, and yet nothing changes. When the cameras are rolling, Obama plays the Great Moderator. Once the cameras are off, however, its business as usual, at it's backstabbing finest.
Behind closed doors, Reid and Pelosi are being instructed to pass something, somehow, and as quickly as possible, regardless of the upcoming mid term elections.
With this latest bit of campaign rhetoric, our great Liar in Chief can pretend his only wish was to "get it right". He cares nothing about the long-term, or about the congressmen who he would have fall upon their swords.
The worst part of this whole mess is that there are ways to actually reduce costs. Obamacare is not one of them. Simply applying more deceptive government-style accounting practices, such as the "Clinton surplus", falsely show savings where there are none.
For a glimpse of the disaster that Obamacare will inflict upon our entire country, all one needs to do is observe the failed system in Massachusetts. While achieving their goal of increasing coverage, the system is proving to be unsustainable and is imploding.
Costs have doubled while waiting times are the longest in the country. Insurance premiums have skyrocketed, and now the huge state deficit is unmanageable. This means higher taxes, providing less benefits, and federal assistance.
Well done, legislators! You have taken a serious problem and, through poorly written legislation using fantasy-land logic, you have made it into a bigger problem.
Hats off to Obama for playing the brainless against the clueless. Regardless of his inexperience, he certainly knows how to play one side against the other. A true politician if there ever was one.
