Letter: Healthy skepticism

Let me get this straight ...

We’re going to be “gifted” with a health care plan we are forced to purchase and fined if we don’t; which purportedly covers at least 10 million more people without adding a single new doctor, but provides for 16,000 new IRS agents; written by a committee whose chairman says he doesn’t understand it, passed by a Congress that didn’t read it, but exempted themselves from it, and signed by a Dumbo president who smokes; with funding administered by a Treasury chief who didn’t pay his taxes; and for which we’ll be taxed for four years before any benefits take effect, by a government which has already bankrupted Social Security and Medicare; all to be overseen by a surgeon general who is overweight and financed by a country that’s broke!

What the heck could possibly go wrong?
