Alarming News

Turns out, they’re all idiots

URGGGGGG.

There is a growing sense among Democrats that they will not be able to accomplish the entire agenda leaders set for 2009, pushing major policy debates into the midterm election year.

Concerns over the cost of overhauling the nation’s healthcare system have served as a wake-up call to lawmakers.

Wait, what? They were unaware that overhauling the nation’s healthcare system would be expensive? Yep, apparently this was news to them:

They had planned for a busy summer of healthcare and climate change debate, a dozen spending bills, a defense authorization and hearings on President Obama’s first Supreme Court nominee.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) even promised to add a sweeping overhaul of immigration to that list.

But the revelation that revamping the nation’s healthcare model could greatly exceed $1 trillion over the next 10 years, along with an intra-party debate in the House on climate change legislation, has lawmakers feeling the weight of the packed agenda and sensing the need to narrow the list.

So, did these numbskulls just figure that no one else ever revamped our entire healthcare system because they didn’t feel like it? Because they were lazy? Because of corporate greed? How did they not know it was going to be astronomically expensive?

Again, as in the post below, these people are too stupid to lead us! I know zero about finance, accounting, budgets, nothing. And I could’ve told you that redoing our health-care system is going to cost a lot of money. And these morons are taken aback by this? Where is my rotten fruit?

I think they just found out that healthcare providers weren’t willing to work as slaves. Imagine that…

My favorite remains the awesome, awesome plan that “the rich” are going to pay for this. Sure, they’ll just happily part with their money for a service they won’t use. They won’t use tax loopholes and shelters to hide it, that’s crazy!

The lefties aren’t interested in facts or logic or accountability—they’re merely interested in creating “utopia” on earth.
The lefties want to make as many people dependent upon government entitlements as possible—that way, those people (and THEIR dependents) will always vote Democrat.

As much as a trillion dollars is, that’s the cost over the next 10 years. That’s a “mere” 100 billion per year.
NFW it’ll be that low. This will be to Medicaid/Medicare like Omen II was to the original: the first’s passive evil was bad enough, just wait till it gets deliberate.

First, I’d just like to say how happy it makes me that they will not be able to shove ALL of their crap through this year. Also, closer attention should be payed to the dems healthcare plan proposed to the H.O.R. this week. The part of the plan nobody seems to be fully understanding, is the mandate that all Americans obtain coverage. We are no longer participants in our government, we are subjects, with only so much liberty as they deem fit for us to retain.
