The proposal would partially be financed by not extending tax cuts scheduled to expire in several years.

Free money for the next president to spend as he likes.

Yes, monopolies are always so cost-efficient, especially when run by the government.

The answer is LESS regulation, not MORE GOVERNMENT>

Obama lays out detailed healthcare plan

I'm sure it reads like an elementary school book report.

All of these schemes also plan on shifting medical insurance money now spent on federal employees (and federal retirees), military members, and veterans to a general fund.

It's a large sum of money, but this also puts folks who have EARNED their health care benefit in line in back of everybody else.

For all intents and purposes, these plans doulbe-tax the employees, retirees, current military members and disabled veterans.

...every American would have access to private or government-sponsored health benefits by the end of his first term if he were elected president.

Does that include South and Central Americans?

Just Hillarycare dressed up in a different suit. Putting lipstick on a pig, and all that.

As expensive and cumbersome as our health care system is, I can't envision a realistic case where government could do it better. OTOH, I can envision any number of scenarios where government would do it worse, starting with Hillary-Husseincare.

Fire all the lawyers. Eliminate Medicare and Medicaid. We never had these problems until LBJ instituted these socialism policies.

He did not offer an estimate of the cost of his plan.

This detailed plan of Osama's is really fleshed out!

Would someone in the drive by media please ask Senator Obama where in the constitution does it grant the authority to the federal government to provide health insurance to every citizen (and illegal citizen)?

So he’s going to raise taxes and force other people to pay for healthcare? Like this is different from any other bad democrat plan?

History will someday say Hillarycare v1.0 failed only because it was ahead of its time.

We will eventually have nationalized health care. Dems are just a little ahead of what passes for Republicans these days.
