Victory, healthcare reform saved or created lower costs

Healthcare costs up 14% for families. Didn't the messiah promise us reform was going to lower costs?

To be fair to the Messiah, I don't think much of the plan has been implemented yet.

Daisy

The advertisement begins with a little girl (Birgitte Olsen) standing in a meadow with chirping birds, picking the petals of what appears to be a daisy (according to Olsen it was a Black-eyed Susan) while counting each petal slowly. (Because she does not know her numbers perfectly, she repeats some and says others in the wrong order, saying them in the order of 1,2,3,4,5,7,6,6,8,9, all of which adds to her childlike appeal.) When she reaches "nine", an ominous-sounding male voice is then heard counting down a missile launch, and as the girl's eyes turn toward something she sees in the sky, the camera zooms in until her pupil fills the screen, blacking it out. When the countdown reaches zero, the blackness is replaced by the flash and mushroom cloud from a nuclear explosion.
As the firestorm rages, a voiceover from Johnson states, "These are the stakes! To make a world in which all of God's children can live, or to go into the dark. We must either love each other, or we must die." Another voiceover (sportscaster Chris Schenkel) then says, "Vote for President Johnson on November 3. The stakes are too high for you to stay home."
The attack ad was designed to capitalize on comments made by Republican presidential candidate Barry Goldwater about the possibility of using nuclear weapons in Vietnam. The Johnson campaign attempted to portray Goldwater as a dangerous warmonger who would needlessly, and recklessly, escalate the conflict in Vietnam.

We are fair, you just have no idea about what you're talking about.

healthcare reform isn't going to reduce the cost of anything expect by reducing services. Thats the only way they can lower costs other than enslaving healthcare providers.

His savings will never materialize, but somehow it won't stick to him. Unlike how the lack of WMD stuck to Bush.
