From the top on down, the Obama Administration is as full of shameless liars as any before.
Take the case of Peter Orszag, Obama’s budget director. This prep-school douche, who grew up in Massachusetts but likes country music, just said this to Business Week about medical insurance in the United States [emphasis added]:
Currently, overall health care is about 16% of GDP. It is projected to rapidly increase. In 10 years, it will increase by a few percentage points as a share of GDP. But the issue is it continues thereafter. And the thing that’s important about the bills under consideration—the single most important thing we can do—is to move the incentive system for providers, hospitals, and doctors away from paying for more stuff. The problem is that we currently do not know exactly how to design that system.
Also quite revealing about what’s going to happen after they pass “reform.”
