ObamaCare and BushCare
Christopher Westley writing for Mises Daily observes:
Ironically, around the same time the jobs data were released, the MSM’s best and brightest also bemoaned the end of NASA’s space-shuttle program, which University of Colorado at Boulder scientist Roger Pielke Jr. estimates to cost more than $200 billion over its lifespan. Pielke noted that this translates to a cost of $1.5 billion per mission — 100 times greater than the $15-million-per-mission price tag promised by planners when the program was being sold to Congress in the 1970s. We can be assured that the projected costs justifying BushCare, ObamaCare, and undeclared wars in Iraq and Afghanistan were equally duplicitous.
