So, what does this grandiose health plan of Obama’s really look like?

“THE FACTS: In House legislation, a commission appointed by the government would determine what is and isn’t covered by insurance plans offered in a new purchasing pool, including a plan sponsored by the government. The bill also holds out the possibility that, over time, those standards could be imposed on all private insurance plans, not just the ones in the pool.”

What does his plan to reduce the deficit look like?

“The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, in its own analysis of the president’s budget numbers, concluded that the cumulative deficit over the next decade would be $9.1 trillion.”

Hmmm… so what about the campaign promise to cut the deficit in half?  Maybe he meant cutting the ability for the United States to pay on its deficit in half…

so what happened to all this ‘stimulus’ $ that was supposed to stimulate the economy out of a recession?  Most of it is still sitting gathering dust because the government chose to fund projects that take multiple YEARS to realize the benefits instead of immediately putting the $ back into the pockets of the people with tax cuts… which ironically would have boosted tax revenue over the long haul while enabling the common citizen to pay their bills.
