Comments: CBO Numbers Cited By Dem Leadership are Bogus; Could It Backfire?

For those who believe, happily or not, that Obamacare will be an indestructible titan if it is passed by whatever means, I submit that it will be much, much worse in execution than even it's most voluble critics have claimed. No, 30% of docs will not retire, but plenty will, and more will adjust their practices to conserve fiscal resources simply to preserve their viability. This will result in radical primary care reductions and quickly. But even more, young genii will be less inclined to go into medicine or the now unprofitable pharma sector. Translation? The near end of medical progress in this country and since we make nearly all the medical progress for humanity, a near end of medical progress globally. Again, this will not be a slow process. The taxes, fees and fines of Obamacare go off like a bomb; suddenly and indiscriminantly. The "benefits" settle like a fall-out cloud, only four years later. Does anyone think America is going to inhabit a demolished hospital for four years just because of the lofty promises of a renovation in the future? Hmmm. If you do, you must be expecting some miraculous results from said renovation. No, this is disaster on disaster. It will benefit NO ONE except public employee unions, and them not much on net. It exposes the totalitarian nature of the Left to those most needful of the lesson: rank and file Democrats. It exposes the unsupportable fiscal fraud that has supported all the "entitlements"; SS, Medicaid, Medicare, AFDC and other lesser beasts that must be slain in any event. Our total unfunded liabilities are now in the $200t+ range. This must be faced. It is best we face it all at once so, oddly, perhaps ironically, Obama is the best man to stear us into that iceberg. Thank you Mr President!

The CBO scores what's in front of them...The CBO is not looking down the road, that road is what is going to run over us...LOOK AT CALIFORNIA people, you will see the path our nation is taking.
