The news you don't hear

The Great One was in Green Bay yesterday, pushing nationalized health care reform. The visit has been all over the local and national news for several days, yet only the local Green Bay media bothered reporting this. I suppose if it isn't reported on, it's not happening?

Kind of like Iraq.

As with the stimulus plan, Obama is pushing for quick action on setting up a public health plan. As with the stimulus plan, it is more important to do something now, without thinking through the ramifications, than it is to work through the plan enough to know that it will accomplish the stated goals and be sustainable in the long run.

I almost added "...and not bankrupt the American people" at the end of that last sentence, but that's already been done, hasn't it? Why not add a few trillion to the deficit for health care? It's really easy to spend money when you don't have it.
