Just Astounding

We now know how many people have the problem most often cited as the reason for last years’ health overhaul legislation. Answer: 8,000
No, that’s not a misprint. Out of 310 million Americans, only 8,000 people have the problem given as the principal reason for spending almost $1 trillion, creating more than 150 regulatory agencies and causing perhaps 150 million or more people to change the coverage they now have.

Not only was such disruptive legislation passed for the benefit of a few, those few didn’t even feel particularly compelled to fight for it through the lobbying process.  High costs, minimal benefits.  Yep, that sounds like a government plan to me!
