Thanks to Harry Reid for confirming on the Senate floor what most of us have believed all along. The currently proposed health care bill will cost at least 2 TRILLION DOLLARS. I say at least because we all know that government cost estimates err on the conservative side and that those programs tend to cost more and deliver less than promised. Don't allow your representatives in Congress to burden you and your descendents for generations to come with a debt burden that is unequalled in history. Stop the spending now, because if you don't, your taxes will be raise to pay for their misguided actions. $2,000,000,000,000 is enough to give every single man, woman, and child citizen in the US (and probably even those who aren't citizens) a stimulus check of $625 per year for 10 years. If the government wants to spend the money frivolously, put it back in our pockets so we can stimulate the economy. BUT, better yet, DON'T SPEND IT IN THE FIRST PLACE!!!
