P.S. Let's check some of the columns in today's newspapers:
"Again last night, Obama invoked the boogeyman of "special interests" who "lie" in order "to keep things exactly the way they are," despite the fact that the special interests in this case are lining up to support the president, and that the critics of his plan tend to bemoan, not defend, the status quo."
"First, Obama rested the credibility of his presidency on what you might call the Dime Standard. He was flexible about many things, but not this:
“I will not sign a plan that adds one dime to our deficits — either now or in the future. Period.”
This sound bite kills the House health care bill.
That bill would add $220 billion (that’s 2.2 trillion dimes) to the deficit over the first 10 years and another $1 trillion (10 trillion dimes) to the deficit over the next 10 years."
"One day after President Obama pitched his plan for comprehensive health-care reform to a joint session of Congress, administration officials struggled Thursday to detail how he would achieve his goal of extending coverage to tens of millions of uninsured Americans without increasing the deficit."
"Obama didn't come close to offering a persuasive explanation of how he'd pay for ObamaCare. And that remains his biggest problem.
He promises much, much more in guaranteed health benefits and says it will cost less."
"So far, White House officials have offered few details on how they intend to pay for the plan. Instead, they’ve deferred to Congress on the issue, saying they’ll consider all options."
Let's leave the best for last!
"The day after President Obama's impassioned speech for big-government health care, Wall Street bet heavily that the so-called government-insurance option he supports is dead."
