Medicare Reform:Turns out...you Tea Baggers were the pinkos all along. Just a bunch of dirty commies, teaching your children how to be little Tea Bagging McVeigh commies too...
The right wing claims Obama is a socialist because he bought stock in GM. The Bush administration bought stock AIG and Goldman Sachs and CITI Bank.
The right wing claims Obama is socialist because he signed into law the healthcare reform act of 2010. Bush did the same with the Medicare Reform Act of 2003 (which incidentally has a 10 year cost of $1.3 trillion, more than the healthcare reform 10 year cost of $945 billion!) and the No Child Left Behind Act.
The right wing claims Obama is a socialist because he is increasing the size of government. Bush presided over the biggest increase in government spending in the history of the US, including the creation of the largest bureaucracy in the history of the US (Homeland Security). Bush spent more on national defense than ALL OTHER PRESIDENTS IN THE HISTORY OF THE US COMBINED, increasing the national debt by nearly $5 trillion during his eight year 'reign'.
"Initially, the net cost of the program was projected at $400 billion for the ten-year period between 2004 and 2013. Administration official Thomas Scully instructed analyst Richard Foster not to tell Congress of Foster's finding that the cost would actually be over $500 billion. One month after passage, the administration estimated that the net cost of the program over the period between 2006 (the first year the program started paying benefits) and 2015 would be $534 billion. As of February 2009, the projected net cost of the program over the 2006 to 2015 period was $549.2 billion."
The difference between Bush and OBummer is one word--force.
Anytime you combine the words "force" and "government" you better run for your life because you are about to lose more liberty.
DumBama FORCED insurance companies to provide birth control, FORCED religious organizations to provide that coverage against their will. FORCED employers to provide healthcare insurance, FORCED individuals to have health insurance whether they wanted it or not, FORCED automotive companies to close down dealerships, FORCED roll your own cigarette shops out of business.
When did Bush ever force anything on Americans? And by force, I mean forcing them to do something against their will?
Barack Insane Obama. The biggest joke America ever played on itself.
