Why is Obamacare like a stool sample?

Here's your riddle of the day:

Why is ObamaCare like a stool sample?

Answer:

Because in both cases, you have to pass it to see what's in it. And in both cases, what's in it, stinks.

H/t my friend Robert K. Wilcox and Michael Levin of California Political Review.

In his post, "A $2 Trillion Down Payment on Totalitarianism," Levin writes:

Enough ink has been spilled regarding ObamaCare that writing about it makes me want to call my primary healthcare provider, if only I knew who it was, now that my insurance has been canceled.

But something in the New York Times caught my eye. And brought tears to it. Read it and weep, yourself:

"[T]he most fundamental aspect of [ObamaCare]: the way in which it raises nearly $2 trillion over the next decade — mostly from wealthy individuals and health care providers — and uses the money to fund the largest expansion in insurance coverage since Medicare was created nearly 50 years ago….Yes, this is redistribution on a grand scale, and we should all be very proud of it."

Did I really see that Obama is taking $2 trillion out of the savings of "wealthy individuals" (if there will be any left by the time he leaves office) and "health care providers" (if there aren't any in bankruptcy court before 2017) and turning it over to…well, somebody who didn't earn that money.

I did. I did see that.

But what's even more galling is the Times' effrontery to assume that "we" should all be "very proud" of this "redistribution on a grand scale."
