If this is the law of the land...why in a republic (little r) and as republicans, do we allow mere POLITICIANS to the right to use a "title of office" for the rest of their lives as if it were de facto a patent of nobility. Because, as republicans, this should NOT be the case...just saying...

Obama Admits that He Failed in Health Care Coup

Mr. Obama wasn't trying to "reform" health care, he was, and is, trying to obtain complete control of the American economy. TARP took over the financial sector, the auto bailout took over GM (after all he blatantly fired the CEO, and effectively turned the company over to his union suppoers, and appointed a union boss as Auto Czar), he gained a substantial minority share of Chrysler, now he wants to grab control of another 17% of the economy.

Does anyone really believe that he won't sign HB 3200 (or the others that are just like it) if it's not "budgetarily" neutral? I for one do not.

According to CBO...

A report released Wednesday morning on the financial impact of the reform bill in the House beyond the first 10 years shows the federal deficit would skyrocket after 2020.


Additionally, from the Lewin Group, a study states that,

The bill would increase the budget deficit by $1 trillion from 2020 to 2029 -- up from a $39 billion increase from 2010 through 2019, according to the Peterson Foundation study, conducted by the nonpartisan Lewin Group.

The group estimates the U.S. already has $56.4 trillion in unfunded obligations and promises over the long term and said "adding new benefit promises without adequate sources of financing will further threaten the nation's long-term financial stability."


But Mr. Obama is quoted repeatedly as stating "he would not sign a bill that increased the deficit by 'one dime.'" This coming from a President who has already added $2,000.000,000,000.00 to the national debt.

Does anyone really believe that?
