'It's Going To Be Like Christmas'

Complete with the massive post-holiday debt. How to pay for it all? Charles Krauthammer believes he knows the answer:

"I think ultimately Obama understands that he has just added an unbelievably large entitlement onto a country drowning in debt. He is not stupid. I think he has anticipated this, and I think that he, from the beginning, had a plan. And the plan is going to be the deficit reduction commission, which will report only after November - and I'm absolutely sure it will recommend something new in American history, a national sales tax which is called a VAT in Europe."

We're all European now...

"I'm not a person who gets sick a lot, so I didn't think I'd need any medicine," said Rucker, who racked up about $100,000 in hospital bills over that period by going to the emergency room whenever he needed care.

I think a wonderful spin-out from this bill would be Hospital Emergency Room Bouncers (H.E.R.B.). These employees would man the velvet ropes outside the emergency rooms of every hospital, and validate each patient's emergency. The ideal candidate for this position would be a former High School football coach (aptly named, "Herb"), the kind who would tell you, "Rub a little dirt on it and get back in the game."

Yeah, that would cut down on unnecessary emergency room visits.
