Ooops - I missed the $150 Billion!

Original post made by Ken in South Pleasanton, Downtown, on Oct 24, 2009

Just as I suspected. At least $150B (BILLION with a B) in cost were not included in Pelosi's recent estimate for the cost of health care reform.

Was this an 'innocent' oversight or just another example of our legislators calculating costs to their personal advantage? The only way they can get the cost of this health care reform under ONE TRILLION DOLLARS is to lie about the true costs. And we all know and have experienced how our legislators (whether Replublican, Democratic, or Independent) have notoriously underestimated the costs of their legislative actions at local, state, and federal levels.

Write your representatives and any other reps that will receive your message and tell them you've had enough of this unbridled spending. Urge them to focus on the things that will really make a difference and won't require our future generations to mortgage their lives to the government.

At the next election, make every in-cumbent and out-cumbent and allow us to start fresh.
