Democrats make America Sick

For the first time, most Americans would be required to purchase insurance, and face penalties if they refused. Much of the money in the bill would be devoted to subsidies to help families at incomes of up to $88,000 a year pay their premiums.--DAVID ESPO
Democrats sicken an already weaken American economy with their 219 to 212 vote where Democrats passed their signature bill against the expressed wishes of the American people late Sunday night and with as much political cover as they could muster without any Republicans to point out that, ‘they voted for it too!’ (see article)

Whatever is wrong or right with this bill lays squarely at the feet of president Barry Hussein Soetoro and Democrats. (see 2:46min video)

ON Thursday, the Congressional Budget Office reported that, if enacted, the latest health care reform legislation would, over the next 10 years, cost about $950 billion, but because it would raise some revenues and lower some costs, it would also lower federal deficits by $138 billion. In other words, a bill that would set up two new entitlement spending programs — health insurance subsidies and long-term health care benefits — would actually improve the nation’s bottom line.

Could this really be true? How can the budget office give a green light to a bill that commits the federal government to spending nearly $1 trillion more over the next 10 years?

The answer, unfortunately, is that the budget office is required to take written legislation at face value and not second-guess the plausibility of what it is handed. So fantasy in, fantasy out.-- DOUGLAS HOLTZ-EAKIN
With lies and deception Democrats and their president have began the Europeanization of America with false numbers as pointed out by Douglas Holtz-Eakin. (see article)

With this bill Democrats strengthen the IRS with new enforcement powers if Americans fail to comply and buy government health care. (see report)

In reality, if you strip out all the gimmicks and budgetary games and rework the calculus, a wholly different picture emerges: The health care reform legislation would raise, not lower, federal deficits, by $562 billion.

Gimmick No. 1 is the way the bill front-loads revenues and backloads spending. That is, the taxes and fees it calls for are set to begin immediately, but its new subsidies would be deferred so that the first 10 years of revenue would be used to pay for only 6 years of spending.

This is a political victory of Democrat by Democrats for Democrats as this was always a fight between Democrats with a little conscience and Democrats without a conscience. Democrats without a conscience won. Now there are no Democrats with a conscience.

The American people are now left sick with the cost and the repercussions of what Democrats have wrought on this country.
