One of Obamacare’s primary architects, Senator Max Baucus, is warning of the dreaded law’s looming “train wreck.”
“I just see a huge train wreck coming down,” he told Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius at a Wednesday hearing. “You and I have discussed this many times, and I don’t see any results yet.”
Baucus pressed Sebelius for details about how the Health Department will explain the law and raise awareness of its provisions, which are supposed to take effect in just a matter of months.
“I’m very concerned that not enough is being done so far — very concerned,” Baucus said.
He pressed Sebelius to explain how her department will overcome entrenched misunderstandings about what the healthcare law does.
“Small businesses have no idea what to do, what to expect,” Baucus said.
Citing anecdotal evidence from small businesses in his home state, Baucus asked Sebelius for specifics about how it is measuring public understanding of the law.
“You need data. Do you have any data? You’ve never given me data. You only give me concepts, frankly,” he said.
What did he think would happen when he helped ram this crap sandwich down our throats? These people who think they can centrally plan our economy and our health care are so arrogant. Of course he isn’t blaming himself for any of this.
So now they’re going to spend even more money to “educate” people about this mess. Great.
