Obamacare/House version RAISES health costs

Obama and the Democrats are pushing health care reform by claiming that costs are going up, and we need to stop that. This is the only thing that the public seems to agree with them about -- the public would LOVE to save money on health care.

But no bill pushed by the Democrats yet has done a thing to lower costs. And the bill that just passed the house will actually increase costs, by almost 300 BILLION dollars:

The House-approved healthcare overhaul would raise the costs of healthcare by $289 billion over the next 10 years, according to an analysis by the chief actuary at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

The CMS report is a blow to the White House and House Democrats who have vowed that healthcare reform would curb the growth of healthcare spending.

I don't see how this is a "blow" to house democrats. Pelosi already forced her side to rush the vote on their bill, before they had this analysis. Realise that if they had simply waited a week, they could have had this information BEFORE they voted.

This of course explains WHY Pelosi rushed the vote. She knew, and the democrats all knew, that their bill did nothing to fix health care. They just wanted to take over health care, because they want to run everything, and make all of us serve them.

Pelosi is a power-hungry politician. She wants to rule the world. She is willing to destroy our health care to get what she wants. We need to stop her.
