You owe your salvation to congress.

Had they not filled that looming barrel with putrid rising hot air you'd be a dead duck or some variety of feathered fowl - perhaps a Leun.

Medicare ended up costing at least 6 times as much per year as its proponents claimed it would. And Medicare was crafted with much more honesty and accountability and thought than "Obamacare" was.

Most government programs typically cost much more than their proponents claim they will

Now can you imagine Obamacare ending up costing $8 trillion per year? It would not be surprising.
