Are you familiar with the Laffer Curve? When calculating tax rates, 0% taxes brings 0% revenue into the coffers, but coincidentally, so does 100% taxes, because, why would anyone bother to work? The optimum amount of revenue that taxes can raise is somehere between those two points.
From the talking points above, I believe that the Obama campaign had their own "Laffer Curve", or in the case of economically illiterate Dems, the "Laugher Curve"!
What do you think? A focus group said promise them $2500 and they'll believe it? Can any thinking person tell me how Obama is going to give every family a $2500 reduction in their insurance premiums and add millions of currently uninsured people into the pool and not have some form of rationing? Frankly, I think the $2500 was snake oil. Nothing more. There are two "L" words that apply to candidate, now President Obama, and only one of them is "liberal".

Update: Listening to this litany of lies again, I noticed that most of the time he said "Up to $2500", which is kind of weaselly in itself. Sometimes he said "lower it $2500", and at least once he said "lower it an average of $2500", which would imply that some folks would have their premiums reduced even more!
