A clear explanation of health care plan


New Castle News

NEW CASTLE — Editor, The News:

What is ObamaTaxCare? Here is a one-sentence explanation of it to clear up any confusion there may be on the subject. Here goes:

“We are going to be gifted with a government-controlled healthcare plan we are forced to purchase and fined if we don’t, which purportedly covers at least 10 million more people without adding a single new doctor but provides for 16,000 new public sector IRS agents, written by a committee whose chairman says he doesn’t understand it, passed by Congress who didn’t read it but we must pass it to see what’s in it, but exempted themselves and unions from it and signed by a president who smokes with funding administered by a Treasury chief who didn’t pay his taxes, for which we will be taxed for four years before any benefits take effect by the government, which has already bankrupted Social Security and Medicare, all to be overseen by a surgeon general who is obese and financed by a country that’s broke.”

So what the (bleep) could possibly go wrong?
