To quote the President: This would be laughable it weren't so cynical.
White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs chastises Republican Congressman Joe Wilson for calling Barack Obama a liar, during the President's speech to Congress - AND THEN - defends The President for calling Sarah Palin a liar.
By the way, after Sarah Palin brought up the "death panels," the Democrats removed end of life counseling from the bill. The very thing that led to "death panels" in other countries.
One other point - Gibbs after defending the President that Sarah Palin lied - then told a WHOPPER. Few objective sources believes that the President can pay for this plan without finding "other sources" than those spelled out in his speech.
In other words - get ready for even more taxes.
And the biggest question looming - during a recession - with a HUGE deficit - why try this now? If there is extra money - then pay down the deficit.
The time to start a massive, money sapping Federal social program is not now. It's like putting an addition on your home when you are out of work - it is irresponsible.
