The Wall Street Journal has a great article on the myths that ObamaCare will actually lower costs. We know that there is no way in hell that more government intervention will equal lower costs. It never, ever has in the past. This is what's so puzzling about the left. They put their faith and trust in institutions that have failed over and over again. Liberty and freedom have repeatedly worked throughout history and the tyranny of statism has always failed to deliver on its promises. Here is a good summary from the Journal:
ObamaCare's real cost-control plan boils down to this: First subsidize coverage so much that costs explode, raise taxes as much as possible to pay for it, and when that isn't enough hand power to an unelected committee to limit treatment and control prices by government order. This is what Democrats are voting for.
