Posted on 12/24/2009 3:11:53 AM PST by Scanian
Harry Reid and his jolly elves today will deliver unto America a Christ mas gift it can ill-afford -- health- care "reform" -- and then vote to raise the federal debt ceiling to a staggering $14 trillion to help pay for it all.
The two are not unrelated.
That became clear yesterday, when the Congressional Budget Office blew the whistle on some fiscal deck-shuffling so egregious that it might make even Bernie Madoff blush.
Turns out that Reid & Co. have been double-counting the proposed Medicare savings to satisfy President Obama's "demand" (wink, wink) that any health-care bill reduce the deficit.

harry “the dim wit” reid is old and is probably going to die soon. we don’t want any “presents” from this crumbling fool. Merry Christmas!
For what does it profit a man to gain a Healthcare bill and lose his own soul? Democrat whores—all of them.
All of a sudden, the light bulb has gone off in the head og the California Governor and he “now realizes that this bill will cost the state of Calif over $3 BILLION and he says there is no way they can afford that”.
He is demanding that the Federal Government pay for it all.
Where the hell were the Gov and his advisors during the past 6 months on this topic???
Minor correction: the Dims wanted to raise the debt limit by $1.8T, to get them past the November elections. To do this, they would have had to find votes they didn’t have, or accept spending limits. They backed the debt limit increase down to a mere $300B, which will only take them to February.
The POS POTUS is speaking AGAIN! Someone has to quiet that obaminable noise!
They’re gonna raise it ever so slightly. $300B is a start. I bet you, they will vote to raise it every 3 months.
The Dems didn’t want to raise the debt limit again until after the 11/2010 elections. It will remind the public how much they’re squandering per day. Having to go down from $1.8T to $300B was a frustrating defeat for them.
That's true, but I think the increases will be gradual over time, say every 3 months.
You may be right, but no politicians want to vote for more debt in election years. It tends to get them voted out.
