In his wonderful book, I Can’t Believe I’m Sitting Next to a Republican: A Survival Guide for Conservatives Marooned Among the Angry, Smug, and Terminally Self-Righteous, former liberal Harry Stein sums it up:

There is much to fault in Senator Edward M. Kennedy’s bill mandating that employers provide health insurance while increasing the role of the federal government in our national health care system. But, the AP article on the expansive and intrusive legislation betrays its primary problem: “The draft doesn’t address how this would all be paid for.”
The same problem that plagues all policies in President Obama’s Brave New America, ever bigger government, ever greater federal mandates, ever less freedom. And no means to pay for it.
If the Democrats had bothered to put a price tag for their policies in front of the American people, they would do what citizens of California did last month–vote them all down.
Democrats are acting like a man showing his generosity by taking everyone out to eat, only after the meal does he bother to tell us that he doesn’t have the wherewithal to pay for it.
