A joke going around the Internet is more accurate than most highbrow, elitist, know-better-than-the-rest-of-us explanations, rationalizations and politicalizations of the (twice unconstitutionally-ruled) government takeover of healthcare:
Let’s get this straight . . .
We’re going to be “gifted” with a health care plan we are forced to purchase and fined if we don’t, which purportedly covers at least ten million more people without adding a single new doctor, but provides for 16,000 new IRS agents, written by a committee whose chairman says he doesn’t understand it, rammed through by a Speaker who didn’t know what was in it, passed by a Congress that didn’t read it but exempted themselves from it, and signed by a president who smokes, with funding administered by a treasury secretary who didn’t pay his taxes, for which we’ll be taxed for four years before any benefits take effect, by a government which has already bankrupted Social Security and Medicare, all to be overseen by a surgeon general who is obese, and financed by a country that’s broke! What the heck could possibly go wrong?
You have to admit . . . it’s a lot clearer than those charts the Obama administration and Congressional libs rolled out to explain it.
