President Obama on Monday made his most detailed pitch yet for a $1-trillion overhaul of the nation's burdened healthcare system, calling it a "ticking time bomb" that threatens the nation's prosperity.Remember when we "had to do something" when Obama and the democrats in Congress passed the "Bailout" to nowhere, saying we just *had* to act to pass an abomination of taxpayer-funded largesse that no one even took the time to read? At the very least, I gotta give the LA Times credit for reporting at least some of the truth:
The challenges of advancing major healthcare legislation were underscored Monday by a preliminary report from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, which estimated that the first major Democratic health bill -- prepared by Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (D-Mass.) -- could cost about $1 trillion over the next decade, while covering only about 16 million more people.It appears that Senator Edward Kennedy wishes on taxpayers the same fate he dealt to Mary Jo Kopechne, but I digress. Just suffice it to say that when President Barack Hussein Obama (or any liberal democrat, for that matter) labels anything a "crisis," hold on to your wallets.
As P.J. O'Rourke famously quoted,
"If you think health care is expensive now, wait until you see what it costs when it's free."'Nuff said.
