The Sheer Scope of ObamaCare's Changes

Now this really puts this thing into perspective in my mind.

The health care industry is worth $2.5 trillion a year, comparable with Britain's entire gross domestic product and larger than that of most European countries. Can you imagine Britain's entire economy being reordered by a few people working secretly in backrooms in a matter of weeks? What are the chances they could ever get that right?

Yup, now that this has been put into writing it is even scarier. I can see mighty statesmen of yore like Thomas Jefferson or Teddy Roosevelt not being able to get a $2.5 trillion dollar reordering of 1/5th of the economy correct. Add to this the fact that it is all being rushed to meet unrealistic and arbitrary time tables.

Also remember that the people working secretly are inept far-leftists like Waxman and Pelosi. I mean they couldn't get a $1 billion dollar Cash for Clunkers to run correctly and they expect to run a program that is the entire GDP of Great Britain?
