Quote du jour

In his weekly radio address, Barack Obama proudly proclaimed that a new report by the Medicare trustees shows that the president's healthcare policies have added another 12 years of financial security to the system.

Which would be great, if the report was accurate.

But neither the president nor the mainstream media has mentioned that the trustees report was required to use the unrealistic financial assumptions contained in the Obamacare bill (such as payments to doctors going down 30% over the next 3 years with no ill effects to either doctors or patients). In other words, if Obamacare had contained language stipulating that doctors would make housecalls on flying pigs, the trustees report would have to describe the expected success of airborne porkers filling the skies.
