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?
