The healthcare bill passed by the House on Saturday might not pass the Senate. Some of you might wonder why would the House rushed on a bill that might not pass at all. The best answer that I can give you is that politics is fueled by drama, not reality.
This bill would have increased the government's financial obligations at a time when the national debt is over $12 trillion. It would have placed an additional burden on employers at a time when unemployment is over %10. The bill even prescribes jail time for those who fail to obtain health insurance. Imagine: Free healthcare, free food, and free orange jumpsuits for those who are less fortunate.
