Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has been reported to have said that the House passage of the Health Care bill is the best thing that Congress has done since the passage of the Social Security Act in 1934 and Medicare in 1965. Those two programs have trillions of dollars in unfunded promises and now that the baby boomers are retiring, both programs are headed off the cliff. There is no way these programs can remain viable in their present state. If the Health Care bill passes the Senate in it's present form, it will be only a few short years before it joins Social Security and Medicare in it's trip over the cliff, but not before it destroys the best health care system in the world.
