Hillarycare 2.0

Hillary On The Campaign Trail

Hillary has announced her new universal health care plan, and I have to say, I like it better than the old plan already. For one thing, the new plan is only 16 pages long, while her 1993 version was about the size of the Old Testament. Plus, nearly half of the 16 pages are just pictures of people smiling over the wonderfulness of Hillary's happy health care plan, so the actual text is probably only 8-10 pages written in a large font. I'm sure Hillary has covered all the health care bases though, because, after all, her husband balanced the federal budget in the year 2000. You can link to Hillary's health care plan here

As a public service, I offer my Politico-To-English translations of some key points of Hillary's plan. Since Hillary's plan is just a collection of broad generalities, so are my translations. That's all there is so far, though you'd never know it by all the media fanfare.
Hillary : A Guarantee of Quality Coverage

Da King: The government will FORCE you to carry health insurance. No exceptions, comrade. You WILL submit.
Hillary: Reducing Costs: By removing hidden taxes, stressing prevention and a focus on efficiency and modernization, the plan will improve quality and lower costs.

Da King: Hillary, please. No efficiency measures are going to come anywhere near to offsetting the costs here. Overall costs will increase greatly, since the taxpayer will pick up the costs for all those who can't afford coverage, and insurance and drug companies will be mandated to cover all pre-existing conditions without exception, thus driving up their costs dramatically. And incidentally, for you smokers, cigarettes will soon cost about $295.00 per pack. Okay, I'm exaggerating about the cigarettes. They might only be $15-20 per pack. In any case, very expensive for plants that grow in the ground, but that's what they get for being 'sinful' plants, I guess.
Hillary: End to Unfair Health Insurance Discrimination

Da King: American taxpayers will have to pay the health insurance costs for tens of millions of the geometrically increasing numbers of illegal aliens
Hillary: Government will ensure that health insurance is always affordable and never a crushing burden on any family and will implement reforms to improve quality and lower cost.

Da King: Be very afraid. The socialists are coming ! Your taxes are heading through the roof. The problems with the health care system have only just begun.
Hillary: A Net Tax Cut for American Taxpayers

Da King: I have a bridge to sell you.
