I'm watching Mike Huckabee's show Huckabee which is on live tonight because of the health care reform debate. An unexpected thing happened on the show. The government mandate, i.e. the government forcing you to buy health insurance, was explained. Gov. Rendell of Pennsylvania, who supports Obamacare, explained it as a money saving device for taxpayers. Seriously.
Here's how it's supposed to work: the added cost of insuring those 30 million uninsured people will be covered by the private insurance companies who will receive a huge influx of cash from those SAME 30 million people who will be forced by the government to buy their product. I'll give you some time to let that circular reasoning sink in.
This is incredible.
Obama has campaigned for his health care "reform" bill largely by demonizing those EVIL insurance companies that dare to sometimes deny people coverage, yet Gov. Rendell described Obamacare as a virtual give away to the insurance companies, giving them millions of customers they otherwise wouldn't have and fattening their bottom lines as a result. And that's how we're going to insure the 30 million uninsured without bankrupting the country.
I know. Only a liberal can believe that. That's why we have to defeat those goons in November. Bring it on!
