Ah yes, things are back to normal. Obama’s speech on Health Care sucked. Big time.
Seriously, does anyone believe that we can pay for this huge health care entitlement simply by improved efficiency? Worse, by trusting THE GOVERNMENT to be super duper efficient?
Look, I respect the idea that health care should be rationed by government guidelines instead of money. It is a bad idea, but it is at least an honest one (intellectually that is). However, that idea is pretty much a non starter here in the US. That is why Obama is “not being clear” (i.e., simply lying) about this. There is no chance this program will not cost hundreds of billions (maybe trillions) and he knows it.
I think he is going to pay for this.
