Did you know the “Obamacare” bill would create 111 government agencies, boards, commissions and other bureaucracies -- all overseen by a new health-care czar bearing the Orwellian title "commissioner of health choices?”
“Obamacare?” “PelosiCare?”Either way you spell it, “Nothing in the health [insurance] reform bill that passed the House of Representatives should give investors in dollar-denominated assets any confidence that U.S. policymakers are serious about tackling the government’s structural budget deficit.”
