This is not an accident. This is how the left continues to massage people and get them dependent on government and expecting the government to do this kind of thing for them. And we only hear about it now after the bill is signed into law. And this line here, this is an AP story: “It might be compared to allowing middle-class people to qualify for food stamps.” They do, don’t they? Folks, if we got 54 million food stamp recipients I guarantee you some are middle-class people. You know there are. You may be one, for crying out loud. And if you’re not a middle class person on food stamps I’m sure you’ve seen one, or a number of them at the market when you go in there.
Richard Foster, the Medicare chief actuary, “says the situation keeps him up at night. ‘I don’t generally comment on the pros or cons of policy, but that just doesn’t make sense,’ Foster said during a question-and-answer session at a recent professional society meeting. ‘This is a situation that got no attention at all,’ added Foster. ‘And even now, as I raise the issue with various policymakers, people are not rushing to say … we need to do something about this.'” Of course they’re not. They don’t intend to do anything about it. This is buying votes 101. Interesting how this news happens to hit the outset of an election season where a Democrat incumbent is in trouble. And all of a sudden now we find out, shazam, three million middle-class people are gonna get free health care. (laughing) Yeah. Wow. What a shocker.
