I take it Obama won't sign it then... I figure the Nebraska cornhusker and the New York, Penn, and Florida Medicare Advantage plan are a BIG part of it... get rid of them and it will be fine... but we will see... those are trillion dollar loses...

Thanks for ruining the country Reid

Spending 900 BILLION dollars to lower the deficit by less than 200 billion. I've never understood why this made sense in the first place. How about we don't spend the 900 billion dollars and use it to pay down the deficit by 900 billion dollars?? It seems that's much easier way to reduce the deficit.



Here's a fun math question for you, with Obama math (spend 900 billion to reduce the deficit 200 billion) how much do we need to spend to completely eliminate the deficit?

He WILL sign it because it's much more important to save all the dying children in the streets than it is to not add to the deficit.

0bama can make it "deficit neutral" just by adding in more taxes, and tah-dah it all balances out.

Well, they will need to go on dying for four more years until his wondrous health care takes affect, meanwhile we all pay more in taxes.

Harry Reid told us, one person dies every ten minutes, because they did not have health care. Hmmm, ten minutes, into four years, thats a lot of dead people.
