you can't make this stuff up
Given all of the overwhelming evidence about our country's finances, to say nothing of the projections just ten years out, (even the admissions of the guys with green eyeshades in the White House), THIS is truly amazing.
In yet ANOTHER interview promoting the wonderful benefits of ObamaCare AFTER it has become law, The One declared that his remake of the health care system was necessary because "this country was going to go bankrupt".
Of course there's no mention of how they cooked the books in the House to make it appear that this sorry bill would save money, (how it only counts 6 years of expenses and 10 years of revenue for its first decade...or that it double counts savings/cuts in Medicare, leaves out the cost of the "doctor's fix", etc., etc..).
And no mention of the fact that, bill or no bill, the country was and is still heading towards bankruptcy...and that it's big government programs (like ObamaCare) that are taking us there.
No shame. No shame whatsoever.
Over the past week, I have been honored to lead the fight in South Carolina against the big government and unconstitutional health care bill dubbed “ObamaCare.”
Months ago, I was the first candidate running for any office in South Carolina to sign the “Repeal It” pledge, vowing to fight to repeal the health care bill if it managed to become law.
In preparation for that fight, I filed legislation in December to amend the South Carolina Constitution to clarify the federal government does not have the authority to mandate that South Carolinians purchase health insurance. If my legislation becomes law in South Carolina, it could deliver a major blow to Nancy Pelosi’s and President Obama’s plan for the government take over of health care.
Late last week, my bill received its first committee hearing and I asked for your support. I am proud to report that a merged bill, known as the “Duncan-Scott Amendment” passed out of subcommittee and will have a hearing before the full judiciary committee in two weeks.
If the Duncan-Scott Amendment passes this year, South Carolinians will have an opportunity to vote on this amendment in November, and send a loud and clear message to Washington: “stop trampling over the Constitution, and start listening to the citizens of this nation!” read more »
