Remember when candidate Barack Obama promised to scan the federal budget line by line to excise any wasteful spending? If you do, you have a better memory than he has.
If any of your liberal friends try to argue that a federal takeover of the healthcare system will reduce costs, send them this link. If the feds take over healthcare, we can look forward to the John Murtha unused medical center monument, and all our other little Pharaohs will want medical monuments of their very own.
