They are calling it the “super bowl” of heath care reform. Super Bowl because it is costing more than the damn super bowl to put on.
The funny thing is, this article estimates that they have only spent $263 million, however earlier reports suggest as of the first half of this year the figure was $280 million. and the total cost is going to be around $400million.
Enough money for 30,000 families in the U.S to afford health care.

All I know is we seem to be entering a game of he said, she said, the health insurance companies are starting to come out swinging saying this is going to cost more and politicans are shooting it down, something very similar to when Clinton was in office.

Im smelling something in the air and its certainly not smelling sweet.
