There’s a lot of bitching by Senators about the cost of health care reform. For example:
And on Sunday, Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) echoed her colleague, telling “Fox News Sunday” that should the latest version of health care reform prove insufficient in bending the cost curve, she and others would “have to go back to the drawing board.”
“Absolutely,” said McCaskill. “We’ll go back and look at other proposals. … We have to be saving more money for our government then we are spending.”
Funny timing on this, especially with the $636 billion defense appropriation bill coming up this week. We need real politicians who will look at our expenses in defense and wonder why we have to pay almost ten times that of any other nation.
