Govt Will Cut Cost of Health Care.....

...Not in my world.

Let's see. Today, the govt annoounced it would cost $1 Trillion over the next ten years to cover those without insurance. When asked about this, the new HHS Secretary, Kathleen Sebelius,, estimated however that would only cover about 15,000,000 of the estimated 45,000,000 million who are currently uninsured.

Hmm is Sebelius innumerate? Is the entire Obama administration innumerate? Cause where I come from this $1 Trillion cost is $100 Billion per year. If it covers 15 million people, that translates to a cost per person per year of $6,667!!! [ or more than $26,000 per year for a family of four].

Christ - why don' t they just request a quote from a bunch of insurance companies to provide insurance? Do we really need some big, new govt bureaucracy? If the numbers are accurate, we now have the dumbest presidential group in history. If the numbers are not accurate, why didn't Sebelius correct them when asked?
