What A Surprise!

The Congressional Budget Office informs us that President Obama’s National Socialist Party mandatory health plan not only will not reduce the costs of medical care, but also will lack cost controls to keep costs from skyrocketing.

Add to that the proposed tax hikes to fund it, up to Jimmy Carter presidency levels (when we had a dead economy, high unemployment, and double-digit inflation), and we can look forward to paying vastly more for less health care, rationed by socialist bureaucrats. 

That represents the social-justice dream of liberal-progressives: everybody equally poor and as entirely dependent as possible upon government largesse.  With socialist intellectuals in charge of our lives, of course.
