They Got the Gold Mine (We Got the Shaft)

The U.S. Senate skulked around in the dark again — that would be the wee hours while it rained on my roof last night. They voted 60:39 to pass another landmark, TRILLION DOLLAR, ObamaCare insurance bailout guaranteed to make less health care available to more people, increase premiums, and raise taxes. (The $500 billion Medicare cuts drive Congressional Budget Office estimates that the bill would cut the U.S. national deficit by $132 billion over 10 years.) Giving up $500 billion to get $132 billion. Wow. Obamathematics strikes again.

The Senate also voted to raise the National debt ceiling.

Coincidence? I think not.

  1. Worse… they cooked the books, they KNOW they cooked the books, they know WE KNEW they cooked the books. (Medicare “savings” money was spent TWICE in the legislation, apparently.)

    But they passed it anyway.


  2. > Throw the bums out.

    Where have I heard that before?

    Note that the only $$$ I referenced were those promulgated by the CBO. There are other dollars not in the CBO report (the coming land grab at the rest of the TWO TRILLION total dollars of health care spending the Demorats deny will happen come to mind) but the CBO is all the news mentioned in this report.

    I hope the CBO is, in fact, neutral. At worst, I hope it is the same as the EPA fuel economy standards: wrong but equally wrong for all the players.
