You Were Expecting What Exactly?

The chart recently released by Rep. Kevin Brady's (R-Tx.) office is priceless. All of this stuff is no surprise to anyone that has been paying attention to the legislative debate over Obamacare. You know, the fact that the law creates 68 grant programs, 47 bureaucratic entities, 29 pilot programs, six regulatory systems, six compliance standards and two entititlements should not be new info. As Queen Pelosi said "we need to pass it to find out what's in it", well we really didn't because most of us knew it stunk to high hell and if the recent poll numbers are accurate so do the majority of the American people. I believe the liberal argument of "Don't worry they will like it once they get the free stuff" will not hold true here. One simple reason. When most entitlements are created it is new and nothing is taken away (except more of your tax dollars). With Obamacare once people start getting dropped from their employer based insurance, the wake up call of your lost freedoms will come too little too late.

As the article below notes, by the administration's own calculations as many as 117 million people will have to change their health plans by 2013 as the employer provided insurance loses grandfathered status. It's the leftist version of the end around, can't actually pass single payer so let's rig the system. So forget all the tax implications, the backroom deals struck to get this disaster passed, and the continual lies from Obama himself ("if you like your insurance you get to keep it"...what a load of sh*t) that last little piece of info is all you need to know what the true intentions were. It was not to get better health care for all, it was simply to grant government grand powers this country has never seen before. They were banking on the American people to be suckers and lay down and take it. Only 91 days until the midterms...
