Finance Committee is “dialing down some of our expectations” of the
legislation in response to an estimate by the nonpartisan Congressional
Budget Office that earlier options under consideration would cost $1.6
“Our goal is affordability,” said Grassley, who is the top-ranked Republican on the finance panel.
Well fuck shit goddamn, our goal is to not have more people essentially assasinated by economics, how about that, Chuckles? Our goal is not to make the program the cheapest possible half a loaf it can be so it sucks enough for you to declare that national health care is a failure and can’t work. Our goal is to actually try to help people, you know, and if that costs a couple trillion dollars, so did your party’s war, so don’t come crying poverty to me.
Your goal is affordability. Yeah. It would be.
