Health care craziness

A White House-backed overhaul of the nation’s health care system, crafted in the Senate Finance Committee, was challenged by Republican critics over higher taxes, abortion, rationed care and a lack of conscience provisions for medical personnel. Their protective amendments were all defeated.

The craziest part of it all is that the committee has been debating a bill that hasn’t even been written yet! In other words, not only has the committee not read the bill, but it will also vote on it without waiting for the Congressional Budget Office to release its official cost estimate. These are the geniuses we send to Congress?

What is the rush to commit our grandchildren to perpetual poverty by blindly passing entitlements that won’t fully go into effect until 2013 — the year after the next presidential election? Many of these Senators will have retired to their “salaries for life” by that time!
