If anyone needed proof that this Administration, like its predecessor, operates in a Bizarro-like world in which reality is subverted, just consider President Obama’s recent statements to Charles Gibson of ABC News, in which he defended his health care proposal. The president told Gibson that if his health care “reform” legislation is not passed quickly by the Congress, “the government will go bankrupt.” Well, guess what, Mr. President – our country already is over $12 trillion in debt, and the estimated cost of your health care legislation far exceeds another trillion dollars!
Issuing repeated dire warnings that the “sky will fall” if desired action is not taken, looses its impact when the dire consequences one predicts will happen, have already happened.
By the way, the president also predicted that health insurance “premiums will go up” if the legislation he and his Democtratic Party colleagues are pushing in the Conress isn’t passed. Is that supposed to be breaking news? Don’t insurance premiums go up every year now? And isn’t a primary reason for such increases the high cost of government-run medical programs like Medicare and Medicaid; and the tremendous costs incurred by doctors and hospitals in complying with existing government mandates?
These folks truly do live in a world of their own. Welcome to Bizarro World.
