Democrats Admit: Our Health Care Bill is a Cluster****

Just read between the lines of the 2,000-page ObamaCare bill and you’ll find two stark admissions. Democrats are convinced that the bill will lead to an unmitigated catastrophe.
Admission 1: After months of proclaiming the “urgent” need for health care reform, PelosiCare doesn’t actually kick in for at least three (3) years.
First, it’s a tacit acknowledgment that prompt implementation would destroy Obama’s reelection chances in 2012.
Second, it’s an outright financial scam authored by the Statist Democrats: ” The CBO has scored the bill at $1.055 trillion [which] does not take into consideration that fact that the ten-year window contains ten years of revenue and only three to eight years of major payouts –- meaning that the bill will bleed red ink [in subsequent years.”
Admission 2: The only Americans not required to join the national health care program are — wait for it — members of Congress. Democrats are so certain that their own health would be endangered that they want no part of the disastrous Rube Goldberg contraption they’ve created.
“ClusterCare” is a $700 billion tax hike that will bankrupt the country as certainly as night follows day. It is 2,000 pages of pure horror: a perfect read for Halloween, but completely inappropriate for children, who must ultimately pay for this disaster.
