A decent WSJ piece... A Reckless Health Care Bill That Nobody Believes In - WSJ.com this piece reminds why I don't even need to look at the details... as this whole thing is summarized: "Yet some 98% of the total cost comes after 2014remind us why there must absolutely be a vote this weekand most of the taxes start in 2010. " Why can't this be vetted??? This is huge, yet there is rush to decide for something that is years away? That should make any common person suspicious... Mr. Obama promised a new era of transparent good government, yet on Saturday morning Mr. Reid threw out the 2,100-page bill that the world's greatest deliberative body spent just 17 days debating and replaced it with a new "manager's amendment" that was stapled together in covert partisan negotiations. Again, the rush... The rushed, secretive way that a bill this destructive and unpopular is being forced on the country shows that "reform" has devolved into the raw exercise of political power for the single purpose of permanently expanding the American entitlement state. Never in our memory has so unpopular a bill been on the verge of passing Congress, never has social and economic legislation of this magnitude been forced through on a purely partisan vote, and never has a party exhibited more sheer political willfulness that is reckless even for Washington or had more warning about the consequences of its actions. although it's good to see that this is the nail in the coffin, I'm far more concerned in the disaster this will create... (see: Social Security never topping 2%, Medicare, et al). look for the explosion of "contractors" from big banks down to Walmart.... I guess since the Swedish populus of 8million ppl, fierce immigration policy, and external military protective have done nationalized healthcare perfect.. so can the US.
