AS WE GET CLOSER TO PASSAGE OF THE HEALTH BILL THERE WILL BE PLENTY OF TIME TO ANALYZE THE POLITICAL FALLOUT.
Since the bill will ( if the House follows the script) not be signed until next year,and thye real effects of higher taxes later on,it is clear that the Dems own this bill lock stock and barrel.
Whenever a senior has a long wait in a doctors office or ER,Obama ,Reid and Pelosi's image will appear.When their insurance premiums go up,the same image.And when Medicare denies coverage,or a doctor refuses to accept new medicare patients a similar vision.
Hopefully the Republicans will run on the theme "REPEAL OBAMACARE" and push for enough of a majority to block funding wherever possible, until 2012 when a Republican President can undue some or all of this monstrosity.
The potential for a major upheaval in the 2010 election is real, and if unemployment stays high, could become a reality.So far Obama and his economic team are in way over their heads with no results.There is a limit to the tax and govt. spending approach.
Thankfully Copenhagen was a bust and no damage done to our economy.
