How can this be? Oh, right.

Nancy Pelosi has unveiled the new health care bill in the House after merging together three different versions of legislation. To appease moderate Blue Dog Democrats and to meet President Obama’s oft-stated promise that reform wouldn’t cost more than $900 billion in the first ten years, Speaker Pelosi sought to reduce the $1.5 trillion total cost of the bill. Newsflash: she failed.

Of course, these projections always underestimate the true cost of these big government welfare plans. Plus, after the 10 years, trillions more will be flushed down the toilet on this freedom-stealing boondoggle that will fundamentally alter America (in a bad way) from what we know of it.
