Here we go again.
At the beginning of his presidency, Barack Obama argued that the country’s spiraling debt was largely the result of exploding health-care costs. That was true. He then said the cure for these exploding costs would be his health-care reform. That was not true.
It was obvious at the time that it could never be true. If government gives health insurance to 33 million uninsured, that costs. Costs a lot. There is no free lunch.
Now we know. The Congressional Budget Office’s latest estimate is that Obamacare will add $1.76 trillion in federal expenditures through 2022. And, as one of the Medicare trustees has just made clear, if you don’t double count the $575 billion set aside for the Medicare trust fund, Obamacare adds to the already crushing national debt.
Promise it all to those that don't have it and you'll guarantee they vote for you. Never mind that what you promise is false hope and change, it's a promise of more "Obama Money" in order to buy the votes of people too stupid to realize what they're getting into, or too enamored with the idea of a pretty picture in the White House instead of substance.
Keep making promises that will break the bank. Ignore the deficit, ignore the spending, promise anything to stay in office another four years and destroy this Country with debt.
