Paul Howard: Obamacare’s gift to all: More regulation, more debt, more taxes – Washington Examiner


Democrats are spending trillions on a Christmas present that a majority of Americans don’t want: health care legislation loaded with more debt, more taxes, and more regulations. Like your Aunt Phyllis’ fruitcake, it’s on the way and there’s nothing you can do to stop it.

>>It’s easier to believe in Santa Claus and flying reindeer than the idea that the deficit will be reduced under the House and Senate bills. The bills are riddled with fiscal gimmicks — like assuming that Medicare physician payments will take a 21 percent cut in 2010, even though everyone knows they won’t. (Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid already have legislation ready to undo the cuts.)
