The laughable quote in this story is:

The House bill with the strong public plan would extend coverage to 96 percent of uninsured Americans and significantly reduce budget deficits.

WAR IS PEACE
FREEDOM IS SLAVERY
IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH
MORE GOVERNMENT SPENDING REDUCES BUDGET DEFICITS

At 871 Billion, it is only 147 Billion more expensive than the all so popular Medicare Part D that was passed in 2003.

It's a LIE anyway.

This article doesn't tell the real story.

The American Medical Association's asking price for supporting ObamaCare is scrapping the SGR ["sustainable growth rate", which would require cuts to doctor's fees next year]. House Democrats did just that, but it pushed the total cost of their bill above $1 trillion, a political red line. The Senate Finance Committee chose the subterfuge of fixing the problem for only one year, which is how Chairman Max Baucus could claim he had done the miracle-work of designing an entitlement that reduces the deficit over 10 years. The AMA wasn't pacified.

So now Democrats are simply going to "untether" this spending on doctors from ObamaCare, hiding even more of its true costs. At a meeting on the Hill last week, Mr. Reid and White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel made the quid pro quo explicit, telling the AMA and about a dozen specialty societies that in return for this dispensation they expect them to back ObamaCare, no questions asked.

Now, if they can trim another 870,000,000,000 we might have something to work with.

Enough money to make nearly ONE MILLION people Millionaires. Enough money to give every man, woman, and child in the state of PA $80,000.00. Enough to give every man, woman, and child in the USA about $3,000.00.

UNBELIEVABLE.
