I was out of town for the first part of the week. I went to San Antonio for a few days with the family. I was there when the health care bill passed. I picked up a copy of the NY Times (the official paper of the left) on Monday, which contained an editorial praising the bill’s passage.
Although the entire editorial made me angry, this particular part really made me scratch my head:
Just as Social Security grew from a modest start in 1935 to become a bedrock of the nation’s retirement system, this is a start on health care reform, not the end.
The NY Times makes it sound as if social security has been a success. It’s a real shame when social security is considered a “bedrock of the nation’s retirement system.”
Lastly, I want someone to explain to me how this bill is going to cut costs? I see it mentioned time and time again and have yet to see HOW this is supposed to cut costs. I’m telling you right now: this bill WILL NOT cut health care costs.
