The really good thing about the health care bill is that provides a plan for solving all of our ecomomic woes. Now that it is OK for the government to tell people that they have to get health care insurance or be fined, the possibilities are endless. All they need to do is pass a couple more mandates:
Step 1: Raise the minimum wage to $150 an hour. With everyone making over $250,000 a year, welfare and other entitlements could be eliminated and everyone would be taxed to pay for the health care bill. The bill would pay for itself.
Step2: Everyone has to buy a new GM electric car. This would get the entire UAW back to work immediately and save lots of imported oil.
Step 3: Everyone has to buy a new house and all new furnishings and appliances. This would resolve the crisis in the building trades by putting them all back to work, put upward pressure on housing prices, and increase consumer spending.
What could go wrong?
