ObamaTax "Train Wreck"

It sure is nice to see someone else using this metaphor:

"Illinois wants to be the engine that pulls states toward the Affordable Care Act, yet a metaphorical “train wreck” is just around the bend ... Illinois saved $1.1 billion last year, but lawmakers were expecting $1.6 billion in savings. The state has $2.3 billion in unpaid Medicaid bills."


Turns out, when you rob Peter to pay Paul enough times, Pete ends up flat broke, but Paul still needs his "money fix." Who'da thunk it?

And the hits just keep on comin':

"Hamos expects 509,000 new Medicaid patients in Illinois by 2017, when the [ObamaTax] is fully operational."

Just keep that last phrase in mind...
