Quote Of The Day

by Brad Warbiany

Call this one the “MSM Edition”:

The law promises that people can keep coverage they like, largely unchanged. For members of Congress and their aides, the federal employees health program offers much to like. But, the report says, the men and women who wrote the law may find that the guarantee of stability does not apply to them.

Now, like most of Congress, I haven’t read the 2000+ pages of the health care bill. But I’d think it a fair bet to say that the “promises” and “guarantee” that this journalist refer to come from Obama’s statements, not the text of the legislation. Of course, I’d love to be proven wrong, but I’m guessing that’s not going to happen.

There’s some schadenfreude to hear that Congress’ health plan might have been invalidated by a law that none of them have read. But when you’re getting screwed, it’s only a minor consolation to know that everyone else is getting screwed too.
