House Approves Obama's Government Takeover Of Health Care
The largest expansion of the federal government in modern times moved one step closer to reality as the House of Representatives voted last night 220-215 to approve a version of President Barack Hussein Obama's national health insurance plan that includes a public option. All five Democratic members of Indiana's congressional delegation, including Andre Carson, Joe Donnelly, Brad Ellsworth, Baron Hill and Pete Visclosky, voted in favor of the legislation, while all Republicans from Indiana voted against it. Only one Republican nationally voted for the plan, Rep. Joseph Cao, a first term Republican who represents a New Orleans district. The federal government has no way of paying for the $1.2 trillion cost of the legislation other than to borrow more money from foreigners. When will the spigot run dry?
