What Obama Needs to Explain About ObamaCare

I think this article sums up exactly what questions he needs to answer in order to sell the rest of the country on ObamaCare.

The proliferation of Obama’s gaffes and non sequiturs on health care has exceeded the allowable limit. He has failed repeatedly to explain how the government will provide more (health care) for less (money). He has failed to explain why increased demand for medical services without a concomitant increase in supply won’t lead to rationing by government bureaucrats as opposed to the market. And he has failed to explain why a Medicare-like model is desirable when Medicare itself is going broke.

Yup all this talk about Death Panels and slashing 30% from Medicare is just smoke and mirrors. He needs to sell us on how more people can be covered by insurance with less money and how much rationing there will be. Those are the questions that are not being answered before anything else.
