The Wall Street Journal's editorial board didn't pull any punches Monday when it declared Speaker Nancy Pelosi's (D-Cal.) healthcare legislation "The Worst Bill Ever."
The sub-headline made things even clearer:
Epic new spending and taxes, pricier insurance, rationed care, dishonest accounting: The Pelosi health bill has it all.
But the first three must-read paragraphs said it all:
Speaker Nancy Pelosi has reportedly told fellow Democrats that she's prepared to lose seats in 2010 if that's what it takes to pass ObamaCare, and little wonder. The health bill she unwrapped last Thursday, which President Obama hailed as a "critical milestone," may well be the worst piece of post-New Deal legislation ever introduced.
