Här är en artikel med många grymma ord rörande (bristen på) ekonomisk logik i Obamas sjukförsäkringsreform, bland annat:

Benefits are phased in "so that the first 10 years of (higher) revenue would be used to pay for only six years of spending (increases)," ex-CBO director Douglas Holtz-Eakin wrote in The New York Times. Holtz-Eakin also noted the $70 billion of premiums for a new program of long-term care that reduce present deficits but will be paid out in benefits later. Then there's the "doc fix" -- higher Medicare reimbursements under separate legislation that would cost about $200 billion over a decade.

Men räkna inte med att få läsa om detta i svensk gammalmedia...
