Not Good

Meanwhile, Obamacare will result in the creation of at least 16,500 new jobs. Doctors? Nurses? Ha! Dream on, suckers. That's 16,500 new IRS agents, who'll be needed to check whether you – yes, you, Mr. and Mrs. Hopendope of 27 Hopeychangey Gardens – are in compliance with the 15 tax increases and dozens of new federal mandates the Deemocrats are about to "deem" into existence. This will be the biggest expansion of the IRS since World War II – and that's change you can believe in. This is what "health" "care" "reform" boils down to: Fewer doctors, longer wait times, but more bureaucrats.

-Mark Steyn in this past Sunday's OC Register

If I had to choose between laughing or crying, I guess I'll laugh. But this is a very very bad time for this country. Enacting vast bureaucracies, increasing taxes, increasing the size and scope of the welfare state, moving toward a single payer system, nationalizing 1/6th of the economy - not good, not good at all.

The media is saturated with news on this subject so I will offer just one thought. The vast majority of us in the "prosperous" US have grown up in peace and have assumed that peace and prosperity are the norm. But they are not the norm, far from it. Decisions have weight and big decisions carry a very heavy weight. This bill, if it goes through, will have a very heavy weight. We should not assume this country will continue to prosper when such terrible decisions are being made.

If the government can't get the postal service right, why should we put them in charge of health care?

I am sure the government can get things right, can't they?

Quick, name three things they have gotten right.

No fair thinking too long. No fair making up answers that are lies, that protocal has been adopted by the Democrats and is already taken.

Alright, I know it is tough to answer.

I will open it up to three things in my life time.

We are in deep doo-doo!!!!!!!
