Wonderful piece here by one of the best, Robert Samuelson. There is so much lying, so much trickery, so much obfuscation, in this bill. Samuelson helps cut through the BS. Bottom line here: this was a bill designed to do two things: 1) increase government control over more of our lives and 2) provide healthcare to a greater number of uninsured. It was not and has never been about controlling costs. Individual premiums will rise, and the national debt will skyrocket. This is legislative malpractice.
