Required Reading


Jonah Goldberg is on a roll this week, today describing those charming new health plans millions of Americans are lovingly being "transitioned" into:

Ah, but they’ll get better ones!

That appears to be the new rationalization for Obama’s bait-and-switch. “Right now all that insurance companies are saying is, ‘We don’t meet the requirements under Obamacare, but we’re going to offer you a better deal!’” explained Juan Williams on Fox News Sunday.

A better deal according to whom? Say I like my current car. The government says under some new policy I will be able to keep it and maybe even lower my car payments. But once the policy is imposed, I’m told my car now isn’t street-legal. Worse, I will have to buy a much more expensive car or be fined by the IRS. But, hey, it’ll be a much better car! Why, even though you live in Death Valley, your new car will have great snow tires and heated seats.

One size will fit all, tovarishch.

Anyway, go and read the whole thing, paying special attention to Jonah's lead about Obama lying either to us or to himself -- with the biggest whopper ever told about American domestic policy. Although that does leave us with something of a theological question: Is it possible for the Smartest Man in Any Room™ to tell a lie so big that even he'll believe it?
