THE STASH OCTOBER 8, 2009

The Shifting GOP Case Against Health Care, Cont'd.

From today's Times

Despite the expansion of coverage at a cost of $829 billion over 10 years, the budget office said 25 million people — about one-third of them illegal immigrants — would still be uninsured in 2019. ...

Republicans were not impressed by the new numbers. Senator Charles E. Grassley of Iowa, the senior Republican on the Finance Committee, said: “The bill spends nearly $1 trillion and still leaves 25 million people without health insurance. That’s not much bang for the buck.”

Hmmm. Something tells me that if the bill covered those left-out 25 million people, Sen. Grassley would have had something unkind to say about that, too.
