Barack Obama starts off with his rhetorical tic, “I just want to be clear,” before saying repeatedly that America has to “buck up” about health-care reform. “Buck up”? Right now, it looks like a trillion bucks up, and counting. A single buck would be a welcome change (via Greg Hengler at TownHall):
The problem with the ObamaCare proposal isn’t a lack of faith in Obama. It’s the unemployment numbers that keep rising, the deficit that Obama keeps growing like the beanstalk in the fable, and the unavoidable taxes that will have to hit all Americans, and not just the rich, as the natural consequence of it all. Instead of “buck up,” the public knows the operative phrase is “brace yourself.”
