Pelosi told America they needed to pass Obamacare so that we could find out what was in it.
Now we know… And it stinks.
Today Governor Mitch Daniels (R-IN) wrote about all the false claims made by democrats before they rammed through Obamacare.
The Wall Street Journal reported:
Unless you’re in favor of a fully nationalized health-care system, the president’s health-care reform law is a massive mistake. It will amplify all the big drivers of overconsumption and excessive pricing: “Why not, it’s free?” reimbursement; “The more I do, the more I get” provider payment; and all the defensive medicine the trial bar’s ingenuity can generate.

All claims made for it were false. It will add trillions to the federal deficit. It will lead to a de facto government takeover of health care faster than most people realize, and as millions of Americans are added to the Medicaid rolls and millions more employees (including, watch for this, workers of bankrupt state governments) are dumped into the new exchanges.
Governor Daniels also mentioned that he wrote Kathleen Sebelius, secretary of Health and Services (HHS), and included a list of demands that he will need fulfilled by 2013 if the federal government expects the State of Indiana to run their program for them.
Good for Governor Daniels!
