"The government 
takeover myth

The first of these myths, which has been all over the airwaves lately, is the claim that President Barack Obama is proposing a government takeover of one-sixth of the economy, the share of GDP currently spent on health.

Well, if having the government regulate and subsidize health insurance is a “takeover,” that takeover happened long ago. Medicare, Medicaid, and other government programs already pay for almost half of American health care, while private insurance pays for barely more than a third (the rest is mostly out-of-pocket expenses). And the great bulk of that private insurance is provided via employee plans, which are both subsidized with tax exemptions and tightly regulated."

Obama: "We're out of Money."
[link to www.c-span.org] [Warning: PDF]

In a sobering holiday interview with C-SPAN, President Obama boldly told Americans: "We are out of money."

C-SPAN host Steve Scully broke from a meek Washington press corps with probing questions for the new president.

SCULLY: You know the numbers, $1.7 trillion debt, a national deficit of $11 trillion. At what point do we run out of money?

OBAMA: Well, we are out of money now. We are operating in deep deficits

"The figure Walker cites includes future payments that government entitlement programs would have to pay, including $32 trillion owed by Medicare."

"Add together the unfunded liabilities from Medicare and Social Security, and it comes to $99.2 trillion over the infinite horizon."

Krugman is a total whore.
He exposed how bad the economy is until he had dinner at the Whitehouse.

Then he became Obamas lap dog.
He has no more credibility.

That implies he bothered to read the claim.
The point was to just chime in that obama is evil.

The point is that Krugman is not saying Obamacare is bad.
He is implying it doesn't matter anyway.

I don't respect defeatism from a sellout.
