The nail in the coffin?

The Washington Post is up with an editorial this morning that absolutely skewers Obamacare and the deficit projection being increased from $7.1 trillion to 9 trillion.

$1.9 trillion off.

That is just staggering.

But I digress.

Here is the key passage from the editorial:

So far, none of the plans under discussion measure up. The time is fast approaching for the president and Congress to face that reality, too.

A column this harsh carries weight in Washington. And it will weigh particularly heavy on the minds of the decisionmakers on Capitol Hill.

And no renaming of the bill can help that.

I conclude not with words, but with a simple, glorious t-shirt:
