So what did we learn this weekend? That the health care reform bill is such a big idea that it doesn't matter what's in it. It's such a big idea, in fact, that that's all those dopes voted for - the idea. Because they really don't know what's in the bill anyway. They couldn't have - it's 2,700 pages. This was, essentially, a "yes" vote on Shangri-la.
The argument was never about health care. It was about whether America can survive when strapped with another massive entitlement program, one in which we've been deceived about cost. Essentially Nancy Pelosi and Barack Obama (Obamalosi, for short) looked at our crumbling economy, weighed down by three massive entitlement programs (Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid), and thought: let's have a fourth. Let's go all in on unfunded entitlements.
The worst part? The lies. Seriously: How can anyone say this is going to save money?
Check out the estimated cost of Medicare. 12 billion. Now check out its actual cost. 110 billion. They were only off by 900 percent.
Welcome to Greece, people. Jump in, the water's warm.
Let's look at all arguments for health care. First they tried to sell the thing on moral grounds. Didn't work. Then on efficiency grounds. Still didn't work. Then they switched to saving money. Thirty million new people to insure, and somehow they convinced themselves it'll save us money! Using the same logic, we should insure Canada and Mexico too! We'd really be saving cash then!
Look - universal health care is a beautiful idea. But so is getting a pony for your fifth birthday.
When daddy argues with little Susie over that pony, she doesn't care about how they're going to afford the pony. She doesn't care if they have to mortgage the house to pay for the pony. She just wants that pony.
But see, daddy is supposed to know that. And daddy isn't supposed to actually buy the pony! And, most of all, he isn't supposed to tell everyone in earshot that it's cheaper having that pony - than having a car.
But he just did. And the media, and the Dems - fell in line like a classroom of five year old girls.
They didn't just buy the pony. They just bought the whole damn farm.
