Some of you may recall the dueling posts I had with Shoebox some months ago. It has been my position since the day the health care legislation was introduced that it would not make it out of the conference committee. Shoebox believed that the Democrats sensed they had to do something on health care in order to avoid looking like Bill Clinton when he was unable to move Hillarycare through Congress. Shoebox was right; I was wrong.
I must tell you I am still in shock. I really didn’t believe that our Congress had moved that far in the direction of statism. I am devastated. I cannot even begin to imagine what this fiscal burden will mean to my children. I don’t want to live in a country that relies upon the government to ration health care. This is truly a bad day in America.
