UFO's More Likely than Health Bill Reducing Deficit

by Robert Romano, ALG Senior News Editor: Which is the greater likelihood? That Unidentified Flying Objects (UFO's) are visiting Earth, or that Barack Obama's proposed $2.5 trillion health bill will actually reduce the deficit as promised? Believe it or not, more Americans believe in UFO's than think legislation taking over the nation's health care system will do anything but add to the nation's insurmountable $12 trillion debt.

According to Rasmussen Reports, "The survey finds that 68% believe the legislation will increase the federal budget deficit. Only 11% say the program will achieve its stated goal of deficit reduction." 

Compare that with 34% who believe in UFO’s, according to Opinion Dynamics. Put another way, little green men traveling from across the galaxy are more believable than Barack Obama, who in his now infamous speech to a joint session of Congress said, “The plan will not add to our deficit.”

Astrology (29%), ghosts (34%), and witches (24%) all poll better than specious claims that providing health coverage to 30-45 million additional people will not cost anything.  Which is really not that surprising. The Senate version of the bill — which allegedly removes the “public option” from the plan — will spend some $350 billion more than it takes in through revenues in its first ten years alone, as ALG News has previously reported.

None of which bodes well for Congressional Democrats, especially for some 18 Blue Dogs in the House who promised in a letter not to vote for a bill that was not deficit-neutral, and then did anyway. They were: Baron Hill (IN-CD9), Gabrielle Giffords (AZ-CD8), Patrick Murphy (PA-CD8), Mike Michaud (ME-CD2), Leonard Boswell (IA-CD3), John Salazar (CO-CD3), Travis Childers (MS-CD1), Christopher Carney (PA-CD10, Jim Cooper (TN-CD5), Sanford Bishop (GA-CD2), Marion Berry (AR-CD1), David Scott (GA-CD13), Kathy Dahlkemper (PA-CD3), Michael Arcuri (NY-CD24), Jim Costa (CA-CD20), Joe Baca (CA-CD43), Dennis Moore (KS-CD3), and Zack Space (OH-CD18).

They may, however, be able to boost their popularity by ordering an investigation of the Roswell “weather balloon” crash of 1947, or attending a few Star Trek conventions. Beam them up, Scotty.

I was thinking about the healthcare bill. Since it funds abortions, I've decided not to pay taxes. I don't want my money funding the killing of innocent lives. They can throw me in jail, but I won't violate my conscience.

Um, do you pay any taxes as a sophomore in college? If so, that's pretty ballsy. The final version of the bill hasn't been determined tho yet.

Yes sir. I did last year anyway, in addition to my employer's withdrawals. Regardless, by the time the health care bill passes, I'll be making taxable income. I feel that funding baby killing goes against my faith and personal beliefs. I'm not looking for an excuse to not pay taxes. I've helped fund America since I was 14. The question that we Americans need to ask ourselves is, "Where do we draw the line?"

I have done every thing I could to stop paying fed taxes for years. And I've done a good job of it. If your paying fed taxes, your participating in propping up the destruction of our way of life....whether you like it or not.
