Intellectual talcum powder

Before you get all wet in the drawers watching the President speak tonight here is a little something that you might want to read by Michael Barone at the Washington Examiner.

There is an element of convenient fantasy as well in Obama's health care statements to date. We are going to save money by spending money. We are going to solve our fiscal problems with a program that will increase the national debt by $1,000,000,000,000 over a decade. We are going to guarantee you can keep your current insurance with a bill that encourages your employer to stop offering it.

The list goes on. We are going to improve health care for seniors by cutting $500,000,000,000 from Medicare. We aren't going to insure illegal aliens, except that we won't have any verification provisions to see that they can't apply and get benefits.

Just a little something to help you watch the snake oil salesman tonight with out getting sucked in by charisma. I am sure none of the above will be addressed or acknowledged. Stay informed and go read the full article here.
