    Factcheck.org Says Obama's Health Plan Promise is BOGUS


    Remember that old economics class in high school? Each chapter would start with another theory, you would study for hours to learn the theory, break it down to its component parts, practice how it effects each area of the economy, only to find out on the last page of the chapter that everything you just learned only exists in an IDEAL world. Of course, since the IDEAL world only exists in the fantasy world of economics textbooks, most of what you just learned is nonsense.

    Obama (Bristol, Va., June 5):In an Obama administration, we'll lower premiums by up to $2,500 for a typical family per year. And we'll do it by investing in disease prevention, not just disease management; by investing in a paperless health care system to reduce administrative costs; and by covering every single American and making sure that they can take their health care with them if they lose their job. ... And we won't do all this twenty years from now, or ten years from now. We'll do it by the end of my first term as president of the United States.

    In a Factcheck.org report, Independent experts say Senator Barack Obama's promise of a savings of up to $2,500 a year per family for health costs exists in that same fantasy IDEAL world as the Economic Textbooks. In other words, it is total nonsense.

    Any type of governmental health system will make costs go up. The government does a lousy and ineffective job of running any government agency when it comes to cost effectiveness. Look at the Post Office, VA, IRS, etc, etc. Does anyone think that a mail carrier should be paid $30 an hour. Blacks that deliver mail to my house, lost an $8k check and deliver my mail to other people houses. The stupid shits have delivered mail to my house with the wrong street number and street address on many occasions. God help us if these dumb ass govenmental employees get hold of our health care system.

    Did anyone really think Obama was going to really deliver on any of his promises?

    No he is not going to be able to deliver on any of his promises. That does not mean he wouldn't ruin this country trying.
