START OVER
I don’t believe Gruber or Wellpoint.
Start over.
There’s no crisis — except for Obama’s re-election prospects.
Plenty of illegals are getting good medical care — why not LEGAL Americans?

WSJ: GRUBER FLAWED, QUESTIONABLE http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748704586504574654362679868966.html?mod=WSJ_Opinion_AboveLEFTTop#articleTabs%3Dcomments “In a December conference call with reporters, Mr. Orszag said that “I agree with Jon Gruber that basically everything that has been put forward in health policy discussions for a decade is in this bill.” He also praised “the folks who have actually done the reporting and read the bill and gone through and done the hard work to actually examine, rather than just going on buzz and sort of loose talk, but actually gone through and looked at the specific details in the bill,” citing Mr. Brownstein in particular.

This conduct is mild considering the other deception by those who satnd to gain from reditribution of health care dollars.
Take, for instance, the HIT industry with its monstrous trade association known as HIMSS. The benefirs of HIT have been exagerated, and in some cases, made up by the industry. It has also paid Harvard researchers for reports (see Wapo, O’Harrow). Obama is advised by the CEO of Allscripts. He does not have to be paid. His company will run the cash regosters 24/7 with Obama HIT mandates. White collar crime still exists.

That wasn’t a ‘grant.’ It was *taxpayer-funded welfare* for obvious political purposes.
All he had to do was to have fully disclose it. He didn’t. His fault — no one else’s. And no amount of sarcasm will fix it.
There has been an enormous amount of *fraud* in “reform.”
That’s why the majority of Americans do NOT trust Obama, Pelosi, and Reid.
Blame it on Bush (liberals like that) — that is the reality. Deal with it.
